Description - A Smile For My Parents by Heather Henderson

Heather Henderson is the only daughter of Sir Robert Menzies, Australia's longest-serving Prime Minister and founder of the Liberal party. Father and daughter were very close, and in 2011 Heather edited and published Letters to My Daughter, a collection of letters written by Menzies to Heather throughout the fifties, sixties and seventies, when she was living overseas with her diplomat husband. They are full of warmth, love, humour and insights - both political and personal - and they allow us to see a completely different side of a man many Australians think of as a rather stern and forbidding authoritarian figure.Now comes A Smile for My Parents, Heather Henderson's engaging memoir recounting charming and insightful stories and memories of Dame Pattie and Sir Robert and their family and friends that will surprise and delight all who read it.
