Who really looks after British interests abroad? Behind the pomp of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, another powerful force is busily but discreetly propping up the image of UK Plc. For 28 years, Julia was a 'diplomatic spouse', juggling a growing family while supporting the demands of one of the great Offices of State. Sometimes hilarious, sometimes terrifying, she reveals the truth of the realities of life as an Ambassador's wife, ranging from food shortages to terrorist incidents to rubbing shoulders with the Queen, Mrs Thatcher and George Best - and rubbing knees with Mikhail Gorbachev. Light-hearted in style, The Ambassador's Wife Tale has a serious core message: that the diplomatic wife stands centre stage as the drama of world affairs unfolds.
