Summary Introduced by Caroline JonesFeatures Jeff Kennett, Jeanne Pratt, Ann Peacock and Adam Sangster, Robert Sangster's son.Long before celebrity culture assumed its current dizzy dimensions, there was a young politician's wife whose every move seemed to create a headline. She's Lady Susan Renouf and she became best known for her marriages to a succession of rich and powerful men - and the dramatic divorces that followed.In this candid 'access all areas' look back she reminisces about a turbulent life story populated with some of the best known names of the era - from international business tycoon Robert Sangster to Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall.Lady Renouf first came to public attention in the sixties as the photogenic young wife of rising Liberal Party star, Andrew Peacock. Together they were compared to President John Kennedy and his wife Jackie. Now in her mid seventies, and happily single, Lady Renouf has been winning new admirers with her seemingly unsinkable warmth and humour in the face of a grim prognosis following the discovery of advanced ovarian cancer
