The Lives and Times of Diplomatic Wives.
A mixture of poignant biography and marvellously entertaining social history, this book is the story of diplomatic life as it has never been told before, seen through the eyes of some of its least-known participants: the wives, daughters and sister who accompanied their men to the far corners of the globe.
Part history, part anecdotal anthology, 'Daughters Of Britannia' makes unputdownable reading as famous names in diplomatic spouse lore like Emma Hamilton and Vita Sackville-West are upstaged by ordinary women faced with extraordinary situations.
