The memoirs of Patience Moberly, wife to the British ambassador to Iraq under Saddam Hussein.

The ambassador’s wife knows everything, hears secrets, witnesses duplicity, but is not allowed to express a political opinion. Now, aged 93, she expresses her views plainly: the Iraq War was unnecessary and the plight of the Palestinians is appalling.

John and Patience Moberly were responsible for starting and training the first intensive Care Unit in Gaza, they were founding members of Medical Aid for Palestinians, MAP, and any proceeds from this book will go to that charity.
