Including - as Mary Soames shows in this forthright, even-handed biography-his own thoughtless, reckless nature. The book is strongest in those early years when, separated even briefly, the two exchanged daily letters; but there is much, also, of Mary's experiences growing up as the youngest in a household dominated by politics and public affairs.

Clementine Churchill — shy, passionate, and high-strung — shunned publicity but was in the limelight throughout her adult life. As a young woman, her character, intelligence, and good looks won the attention of the impetuous Winston Churchill. Their courtship was swift, but their marriage proved immensely strong, spanning many of the major events of the twentieth century. Written with affection and candor by the Churchills’ daughter Mary Soames, this revised and updated biography of a lionhearted couple’s life together is not only of historic interest but deeply moving.
This work, an update of an earlier work, really moved me. The lives of Clemmie and Winston are an inspiration to all. Yes, they were of the leisure class. However, finances were not always not worrisome.
Basically, their family lived most of their lives on Winston's pen.
He was inspirational, brilliant and effective in leading the British people through World War II and in the early 1950's. At all times, Clementine was his rock, a beneficent leader of her own causes to help people who were suffering. She personally witnessed the Russian people's suffering when she visited Russia. After that she began a fund for Russia, raising millions of English pounds. She was honored over and over again for instance with an honorary Doctor of Laws degree. Finally,she was made a Baronness and actually served in the House of Lords.
What an amazing woman! I've read so much about Winston; it was interesting to be on the other side of him and Clementine was a delight - a strong woman in her own right. I enjoyed the book thoroughly and if you like reading about strong women (not bossy women) but strong self-sufficient women you will enjoy this book as well. And if you love Winston Churchill you will love this book doubly.
This is the biography of Winston Churchills wife written by her youngest child, Mary.....lots of new information about the life they led by an insider who knew everything, or almost everything that was going on....a great read....
I had to read this book after finishing Gilbert Martin's bio, CHURCHILL. In that read, Clementine became an enigma to me and I needed to figure out her wiring and better understand her significant contribution to this great man's life. She too was a great woman in her own right. One needs to read this well written biography of a marriage to get a more complete picture of the Churchill team. I appreciated Mary Soammes honesty; she enables us to know her parents on a deeper and more human level. I consider it an important read.
This is a very complete non-fiction book..It contains letters and remembrances of the loyalty and love that the Churchill's shared..It is rather dry..but concise..I have enjoyed picking it up and reading where ever the book opens..
I have always found Clementine Churchill to be fascinating. I am glad there are
books about her life and this is one of the best. It was writen by her daughter.
I liked reading about her childhood. I believe it certainly formed her personality.
Without delving too deeply,i think her youth "hurt" part of her and yet made her
strong in other ways. Clementine is just as important as Winston. What a great
lady she was! I will remember her always.
probably accurate
I love this book so much I do not want it to end. Mary Soames draws you into her parents life, so much so, you feel part of the family.
This is a love story like no other.
