When your husband becomes Prime Minister, and the doors of No. 10 close behind you, every aspect of life is suddenly changed. This was what Cherie Booth discovered. Intrigued, Cherie and social historian Cate Haste set out to explore the experience of previous political generations since the 1950s. Were they prepared for their role, or were they taken by surprise? How did they deal with life at No. 10? How intrusive was the press, and how has this changed over the years? Based on personal interviews, diaries, letters, and the accounts of surviving spouses, families, close friends, and colleagues, this illuminating book explores the pressures and rewards of daily life in the "goldfish bowl" of No. 10 and Chequers.
