Publishers Description: Heather Henderson is the only daughter of Sir Robert Menzies, Australias 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, humor, and insightsboth political and personaland they allow us to see a completely different side of a man many Australians think of as a rather stern and forbidding authoritarian figure. A Smile for My Parents combats that image by 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.
