"In 1912 Lloyd George, Chancellor of the Exchequer, invited Miss Stevenson to become a secretary at the Treasury 'on his own terms' which were in direct conflict with her essentially Victorian upbringing. At Christmas of that year she acccepted those terms and began a relationship that continued to be a source of bliss, fulfillment and pride until Lloyd George's death in 1945. Here is the absorbing flow of fascinating high-level gossip about life at the top-revealing, almost uncritically, the social hypocrisy and political follies of a governing class that was alienating its best minds, killing off its sons, contriving its own downfall, and driving its victorious wartime prime minister into embittered opposition. From her diary, she describes the major personalities in British public life during and after the First World War-from Asquith and Lord Kitchener to Winston Churchill and the then Prince of Wales.
