If you are looking for a life affirming book do read this biography. She went to humble beginnings to the House of Lords and never once compromised her beliefs. I had not realised all the work she had done especially petitioning for a minister for children so she was not just another Play School presenter. She flatly refused to bare her all in any production , despite being in "Hair " where everyone stripped. Her siblings all went on to lead productive lives as well all thanks to their parents especially her mother who made them believe in themselves.
