This book is the story of Clementine Churchill, wife of the legendary Winston Churchill written by their daughter.

If follows Clementine until she marries Churchill and then follows both of them as a dual biography and works in the the story of their children. It is an insightful look into the lives the Churchill's. Their legacy and impact on the 20th century was huge and understanding them and their times is worthwhile.

One of the most remarkable and inspirational books I have read recently.

Fascinating insights into a marriage written by Winston and Clementine's daughter who did not gloss over their "Ups and downs". Clementine was a strong character in her own right and had great perception of people encountered through their life. History may have turned out differently if he had married someone else.
I thought this was really interesting. I got a good little bit of British history, a really touching love story (yes there are rumors of the affairs but I chose to not think about them while reading this), and learned a bit about Winston Churchill. I would recommend it!

This is a great book about Winston and Clemmie because it is mostly their letters to each other, edited and commented on by their daughter. A very personal look at THE MAN. Loved it.

It was very interesting. It also gives an insight of how people in power lived, especially at the beginning of last century. Very detailed, but pleasant to read.
This book is put together through the letters of Clemmie and Winston. It is really personal. I like it. Makes me want to write more to my fam.

Really enjoyed this. Stayed up late into the night to finish.
After a while got bored reading who she had lunch with.
