*'I feel so privileged to have travelled so far. So much has happened ... that it feels wrong somehow just to let it pass as if the journey had no meaning.' CHERIE BLAIR
Cherie Blair's much-anticipated autobiography takes the listener from a childhood in working-class Liverpool to the heart of the British legal system and then, as the wife of the Prime Minister, to 10 Downing Street. It has been an astonishing journey for a woman whose unconventional childhood was full of drama, and who grew up with a fierce sense of justice.
Cherie Blair was the first British Prime Minister's wife to have a serious career, rising to the top of her profession at a young age, only to find herself in a new and challenging role in the public eye. In her autobiography she will speak for the first time about what it was like to combine this role with her full and rewarding life as a working mother.
As a barrister and a judge, Cherie Blair is used to speaking on behalf of other people. At last she speaks for herself, offering a warm, intimate and often very funny portrait of a family living in extraordinary circumstances.
