Without Churchill's inspiring leadership, Britain could not have survived its darkest hour and repelled the Nazi menace. Without his wife, Clementine, however, he might never have become Prime Minister. By his own admission, the Second World War would have been 'impossible without her'.
Clementine was Winston's emotional rock and his most trusted confidante. Yet her ability to charm Britain's allies and her humanitarian efforts on the home front earned her deep respect. Now Sonia Purnell explores the peculiar dynamics of this fascinating union.
Excellent book that gives a great insight into this wonderful and unique woman. While it does touch on Winston's life it is absolutely about Mrs C. Brilliant.

This book is just amazing. It brouht me closer to the already fascinating figure of Clementine Churchill. I love how it brings a new perspective on the achievements of an iconic man and proves that greatness is a more complex phenomenon than just actions and personality of one person. It is very nicely read as well
I found this book both totally absorbing and hugely educational. What a woman she was!
A fascinating insight into the love filled if exhaustive marriage of Mr and Mrs Churchill. Well worth a listen and never dull!!!!
I loved this book. I have read a lot about Winston Churchill but his wife is a shadowy figure, even at Chartwell but Here she emerges from the shadows, a remarkable figure in her own right who made a huge contribution to the British way of life
