What a delightful book, a historical fiction story about Clementine Churchill. A book full of history, and a great storyline about a wonderful and inspiring woman
This book was enlightening and interesting, and flowed really well. A book for all lovers of history, and historical fiction. One I would gladly recommend
In 1908, Clementine Hozier married Winston Churchill and it's the start of one of history's greatest unions. Clementine was expected to be a Winston's wife, a mother to his future children and support his political career. Clementine Churchill was more than the wife of England's most powerful men, she was his friend, his confidant, his greatest supporter and together they made a formidable couple.
This is my first book from Benedict. I really don't know much about Winston, let alone Clementine, his wife and this was a good introduction. I didn't realize he was at the top of his political game, then out, then back in again and out. He changed political ...more
It encompasses how they met, what she was thinking during this courtship, as well as their early years of marriage through the end of WWII. While I would have loved to read about the remainder of her life, I feel that the book ended on a romantic and satisfying point in her life, and it was fitting for this novel.
I have to say I have always been a huge fan of Ms ...more
Lady Clementine is about Winston Churchill's wife, usually portrayed as long-suffering and anxious for Winston to put aside politics and enjoy his life--and give her more of his ...more
Benedict has done it again! She has provided a intimate look at the relationship between Winston Churchill and his wife, Clementine, beginning at their marriage and extending throughout WWII. Clementine fulfills the cliche that there is always a good woman behind every successful man. She was the bedrock for Winston’s success and provided the support he needed to lead England during difficult times. She made sacrifices both personal and familial to give her ...more

When you don't have a car for a month due to a predatory car insurance industry, you can get a LOT of reading done!!

New from Marie Benedict, the New York Times bestselling author of The Only Woman in the Room! An incredible novel that focuses on one ...more
The Churchill's, both Winston and Clementine are portrayed as deeply committed to each other. But also committed to working for their country. Clementine wanted to help her husband achieve his political goals. She ...more
This book is an interesting, but not engrossing, fiction of Clementine Churchill’s marriage to Winston. Clementine proved herself Winston’s equal time and again. Not afraid of speaking her mind, she was as enthused by politics as he was.
Benedict chooses smart women who were restrained by their times as her topics. I do wish she didn’t try to have her characters see their futures, whether Winston seeing himself as destined to save the world or Clemmie seeing herself as ...more
Clementine Churchill did not let her marriage to the most recognizable Prime Minister define her as being “just the PM’s wife”. Instead, she used the position to rally women during wartime and gave them purpose. She would also help Winston with speeches, and smoothing his rough edges.
The format of the book was a bit ...more
