Clementine by Sonia Purnell

Winston Churchill was an imposing historical figure, but we've heard little about his wife, Clementine. The biography by Sonia Purnell gives an in depth look into the life and childhood of the woman who stood by his side.

From the cover:
Born into impecunious aristocracy, Clementine Hozier was the target of cruel snobbery. Many wondered why Winston married her. Beautiful and intelligent but prey to crippling insecurities, she made his career her mission, guiding him with a raw honesty and keen understanding of what was needed for his political survival. She tempered and stabilized him, but her devotion came at the perilous expense of their children.

Hop on over to Letters from a Hill Farm for more about the book.
