PP New York YR 2008 SN 9780316031455 0316031453 AB Even if she hadn't married Tony Blair, Cherie's story would have been amazing. Abandoned by her actor father, she overcame obstacles to become one of the UK's most successful barristers. But when Labour took power in 1997, she faced new challenges: her husband was the first Prime Minister in recent history with a young family, and Cherie was the first PM's wife with a serious career. Here, she gives a complete account of her own life--an unconventional childhood full of drama which left her with a fierce sense of justice, then life as a working mother married to the Prime Minister. She writes about her encounters with foreign leaders and her friendships with Presidents Clinton and Bush, as well as with Hillary and Laura. And she offers inside details of her relationships with the royals, including Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, and Princess Diana.--From publisher description.
