Everyone has heard at least one thing about the Masons - good or bad - but what is the truth? Written by the wives of two well-established Freemasons, A Handbook for The Freemason's Wife aims to give a simple and straight-to-the-point guide to the basics of Freemasonry, steering the reader through the initially bemusing concepts towards a clear understanding of the path of moral learning the men folk will be involved in. It demystifies the myths and puts paid to the rumours and in doing so helps make the reader feel reassured, more knowledgeable and respectful of a wonderful Craft.
Whether you are the girlfriend, wife, partner or close relation of a Freemason or Freemason-to-be, you will find within this light-hearted book the answer to almost every question you will initially need to know about Freemasonry. From the initial queries about becoming a Mason, to the role of "Lady" at Ladies Night, the answers and suggestions are here.
A perfect book for every Freemason's wife!

Reviews and Press Reports
Michael Baigent - Freemasonry Today
"This is a well written book which can be read in one sitting or dipped into at leisure; every Freemason should purchase a copy for his wife or partner."
Bruno Virgilio Gazzo
Editor, PS Review of FM
"For the purpose of simplicity the authors have tended to use the terms 'wife' and 'husband' throughout the book. This obviously does not imply that all Freemasons are married, nor indeed that this book is intended purely for the wives. They hope it will be of great use not only to the wives, girlfriends and partners, but to the families and friends of potential or long-standing Freemasons. The authors have also included a list of Masonic terminology which may be of use to you on your journey through the book."
The Square Magazine
This is such a useful little book not only for the wife, partner or girl friend but also for the Mason himself, who I am sure will learn something new."
An interesting and informative little book and with Christmas on the horizon an ideal Masonic present.
The Eastern Daily Press
Freemasons have been shrouded in secrecy for centuries. The international network of many thousands of men, linked by strange handshakes and solemn vows, has intrigued, and sometimes incensed, outsiders.
And until now, even their own wives were often outsiders.
But when Philippa Faulks' husband decided to become a mason, she wanted to know more.
