Inhaltsangabe

A mixture of poignant biography and marvellously entertaining social history, this is the story of diplomatic life as it has never been told before, seen through the eyes of the wives, daughters, and sisters who accompanied their men to the far corners of the globe.
©1999 Kate Hickman (P)2006 Oakhill Publishing Ltd

Kritikerstimmen

"Katie Hickman's fascinating Daughters of Britannia looks beyond the pomp and pagentry of the British foreign service and into the reality of making a life abroad in foreign lands." (Vogue)
"This is a lovely book: affectionate, celebratory, and as conscious of the glory as the hardship. These women lived: they saw dolphins in the Bosphorus at dawn, took tea with empresses, watched eclipses in Turkistan. And they were so lonely that they wrote it all down." (Libby Purves, Sunday Times)
