Praise For A Family Romance: The Deakins at Home

“There has never been an Australian politician quite like Alfred Deakin. We have had no other prime minister more intelligent, none so learned in literature, history, religion, philosophy ancient and modern, none so articulate on paper about the public history he lived and made.” —The Weekend Review
