This book does not – as Fan herself would put it – pretend to be ‘just another history book’.
Rather, it is the story of an extraordinary life of a truly remarkable woman. The ‘history’ is merely the backcloth to put her life into its context.
Fan is full of grace, stoicism, style and an impish sense of fun, all of which have enabled her to overcome personal tragedies that would have destroyed a lesser personality. Her story reminds us of the characteristics of the English, which brought us safely through two world wars. It should make us pround of our past, and confident in our future.more
