    I don't think context is really necessary in this case, but I would like to know what about the sentence you find confusing. Is it the general meaning of the sentence or is it the meaning of a certain word when used in that sentence?

    Oh, I understand now. Ignore my previous reply. It means that she puts honesty, as a value, above any other. Honesty is the most important characteristic to her.
