Storyline

With the support and patronage of his friends Wyndham and Mary Anne Lewis, Disraeli is finally elected to Parliament as a Conservative member. Although his maiden speech is less than successful he does make his presence known and slowly builds a positive reputation with his colleagues on both sides of the House. The death of his friend and fellow MP Wyndham Lewis brings much sadness but also brings an opportunity as he proposes to the now widowed - and wealthy - Mary Anne. Friends and family on both sides argue against the match but over time, Disraeli develops deep feelings for her and they proceed to marry. He is deeply disappointed however when the Prime Minister fails to offer him a Cabinet post. He is soon approached by other Conservative members who, like himself, want to see more progressive policy initiatives. Over many years he establishes himself as a natural leader but many traditionalists will not consider him for high office. Written by garykmcd
