Save the Children┐s original founder was a remarkable spinster in a brown cardigan whose most famous line, 'I don┐t care for children┐ makes hers a most unconventional story. Clare Mulley┐s sensitive, entertaining, and beautifully written biography reveals a life full of humour and tragedy, passion and pain, and casts an enlightening insight into the development of the charity we know today.
