    The daughter of an officer and an American heiress, Jean Trumpington was born into a world of considerable privilege, but the Wall Street Crash wiped out her mother's fortune. In this forthright memoir Trumpington looks back on her long and remarkable life during which she worked for Lloyd George and then at Bletchley Park during the Second World War, married, and later embarked on a political career, becoming a life peer in 1980.
