Product description


Veronica Maclean was born in 1920 in the Scottish Highlands to the illustrious Fraser family and married the diplomat and politician Sir Fitzroy Maclean. PAST FORGETTING is the story of her life played out against the dramatic social, political and diplomatic history of the twentieth century. From her acquaintance with the Kennedys, Bushes and the Astors to her friendships with Belloc, John Singer Sargent and Freya Stark, PAST FORGETTING also charts her journeys overland to China, Persia and Yugoslavia, her lecture tours in America, and her medical mission to the Balkans in the late 1990s.

Veronica Maclean travelled widely, visiting twenty-seven of the thirty-two reigning royal families while researching her book CROWNED HEADS. She is the author of three cookery books. She is a keen botanist and has created the garden at Strachur, Argyll.
