by Rose Luce
Lady Rose Luce’s frank and entertaining account of more than 60 years of adventures around the world with her husband Richard, former MP, Minister, Vice-Chancellor, Governor of Gibraltar and Lord Chamberlain to The Queen’s Household.
Rose Luce has had an unusually varied and interesting life. Her early family life and jobs in parliament and America, later including a leading role in the English-Speaking Union and much charitable work in the UK and Gibraltar, were buttressed by her love of music and singing in choirs. Above all, as the wife of Richard Luce, she supported his long and varied career over 60 years as an MP, Minister, Vice-Chancellor, Governor and Lord Chamberlain to The Queen’s Household.
Richard writes in his memoirs Ringing the Changes: “I cannot describe adequately in words what her support, love and companionship throughout our marriage have meant to me. I could not have managed my work in Africa, the struggle to get into Parliament, politics, being a Minister, a Vice-Chancellor, a Governor or Lord Chamberlain without her.”
In this book, Rose describes in the most vivid, entertaining and human way her life supporting Richard in all his many and challenging tasks.
