Black boards with beveled corners and gilt spine titles. Contents in fine condition; rear board has small bump top edge. Unclipped dustjacket has chips, tears and tape repairs. Winston and Clementine Churchill were married for 57 years spanning many of the major events of the twentieth century. Mary Soames was their youngest daughter and recounts her mother's early life, her marriage to Winston Churchill, drawing on their letters to chronicle their private and public lives.

Synopsis

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.
