"Beginning in the Sudan and London of 1884 and played out against the shambolic end of the Empire. An honourable man draws on the lives of two real men: Charles Gordon, an heroic, hubristic, career army man whose refusal to obey orders helped bring down the Gladstone government, and W T Stead, editor of the Pall Mall Gazette, the father of tabloid journalism. Their story is intercut with the tale of a poor, working woman in London. This is a book about destiny and about how wrong men can be; about foreign adventure and heroism doomed to failure; about women struggling to carve a place for themselves in the world; about political compromise and military mayhem." --Publisher description.

1884/85 Khartoum and General Gordon. This story spans the personal and epic and addresses the folly of Empire and the concept of goodness. Very good.
