9780966505184: A Lifelong Affair: My Passion for People and Politics

The autobiography of the widow and political partner of Frank Church, four-term U.S. senator from Idaho (1957-1981), and their joint efforts on behalf of progressive issues such as civil rights, opposition to the Vietnam War, and wilderness preservation. Besides being a tale of a political woman, A Lifelong Affair is a poignant love story.

From Publishers Weekly:

This captivating memoir by the wife of the late Idaho senator Frank Church captures the essence of what life was like when, in 1957, as a young couple, the Churches established themselves among the Washington elite and when, later, they fought battles, large and small, both in and out of the political arena. Relating her story simply and sincerely, Church acknowledges that she "was hardly the classic senator's wife. I have often described my life in Washington as like Cinderella's: I was either cleaning the fireplace or going to the ball." Although Church's role as a senator's wife demanded active participation in Washington's social circles, she did more than play hostess; with her political acuity (she was fascinated with politics from her school days), she often advised her husband in matters of state, earning the affectionate nickname "the third Senator from Idaho." 16 page photo insert.
