About the Author:

Norma Major's first book, a biography of the opera singer Joan Sutherland, was published to great acclaim in 1987. Her time spent at Chequers during her husband's term as Prime Minister (1990-1997) gave her a unique opportunity to research and write this book.

From Booklist:

A new book by the wife of Britain's current prime minister allows Anglophiles the unique opportunity to vicariously peer into ornate parlors, stroll through rose gardens, and survey the art collection of Chequers, the splendid country estate where prime ministers have spent time relaxing when not conducting government business or entertaining foreign heads of state. In addition to providing readers with glimpses of fine antiques and magnificent interiors, Major provides history buffs with an expansive accounting of the house itself, detailing numerous events and experiences that add color to the overall story of its occupation by renowned political figures. Period and modern photographs add substantially to a commendable effort that invites readers to visit a thus-far private residence steeped in history. Alice Joyce
