Twenty days after Britain's dramatic vote to leave the European Union, a new Prime Minister has captured Downing Street. Few are more surprised than Theresa May herself. At the start of this extraordinary summer, the formidable May had been on the cusp of becoming the longest-serving Home Secretary in history. Then the unexpected happened. David Cameron's sudden resignation unleashed a leadership contest like no other - and saw the showier rivals for this crown fall one by one with dizzying speed. Britain's second-ever female premier is a self-styled unflashy politician, a vicar's daughter whose commitment to public service was instilled during her Oxfordshire childhood. With one of the strongest marriages in politics, the Vogue-reading, cookbook-devouring, kitten heel-wearing May has overcome personal sadness to forge a reputation as one of the most respected and diligent politicians of her era. More than a decade after she warned stunned Conservatives of their 'nasty' image, the 59-year-old has become the champion of Middle England and united her riven party. May's task now is to bring together a divided country, at the moment of perhaps its greatest challenge since the Second World War. Theresa May tells the story of one of the most extraordinary people ever to enter No. 10.
