Having read a lot of political history and biography of the actual politicians, refreshing to read an account of life in Westminster by a politician’s wife.  Of course, Edna Healey is an accomplished author in her own right, so this is well and delicately written and, indeed, makes the point that the happier political wife is the one who has her own life and interests, however strong the marriage.  Fascinating inside information about what it’s like to live in those official residences and her love for family and friends shines through.  Excellent and very interesting.
