Novelist, statesman and renowned wit Benjamin Disraeli was twice Prime Minister of Britain, and Queen Victoria’s favourite minister. It was an age of strict outward adherence to Victorian ideas of morality. If, in his domestic existence as the devoted husband of an equally devoted wife, there was a secret, then he needed to keep it hidden. Who better to help in this than his powerful friends, the Rothschilds?
The truth remained concealed until, on the other side of the world, an elderly woman as proud of her Jewish heritage as Disraeli had been of his, began gradually to disclose her memories.
