The Fragrance of Tears, my friendship with Benazir Bhutto.

Head of Zeus, 2020, www.headofzeus.com
Oxford University Press Pakistan, 2021; Urdu edition 2024

'The story of a remarkable woman, but not as history has already written it. This intimate account could oly have been written by someone like Victoria Schofield, who stood next to Benazir in everyday and earth-shaking moments, both as an astute observer and loyal friend.' Lyse Doucet, BBC Chief International Correspondent.

' A beautifully written and deeply moving account of Victoria Schofield's 33-year friendship with Benazir Bhutto. In the true style of memoir, she captures the person - dutiful daughter, erstwhile matchmaker, laoy friend, and, above all, courageous woman.' Peter Galbraith, US diplomat and foreign policy adviser.
