Author: J.B. Williams

Rev Dr Charles Leach was the only Member of Parliament who has ever lost his seat for being of 'unsound mind'. Worsted to Westminster charts how he rose from a humble birth in rural Yorkshire to become a shoemaker, prominent preacher, lecturer, traveller, writer, socialist, businessman, army chaplain, and MP. His ability to be where the action was, makes for a fascinating glimpse into the history of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
