This is the story of an extraordinary woman – mother of 12, Premier's wife, Prime Minister's wife, radio broadcaster, newspaper columnist, author of three books, married at 17 to a man twice her age – and both a State Treasurer and Education Minister.

Enid Lyons regarded herself as "feminist" but was also conservative. She was a pacifist and a Fabian underneath her conservative outlook on families and moral life. Enid could be strong on principle but also surprisingly tolerant. She had views on mothering that were ahead of their time.

The story of Joe and Enid Lyons is full of dramatic extremes without being risqué. Anne Henderson has also uncovered new information which indicates a family secret. There will be controversy over this – and interest.
