An important read.

I had to read this book after finishing Gilbert Martin's bio, CHURCHILL. In that read, Clementine became an enigma to me and I needed to figure out her wiring and better understand her significant contribution to this great man's life. She too was a great woman in her own right. One needs to read this well written biography of a marriage to get a more complete picture of the Churchill team. I appreciated Mary Soammes honesty; she enables us to know her parents on a deeper and more human level. I consider it an important read.

Fantastic Biography

This biography gives great insight into the lives of the Churchills'.It was written by Mary Soames, the youngest child of Winston and Clementine Churchill. It was amazing to see the love and devotion Clementine and Winston had for each other. They were ever faithful letter companions from the start of their romantic and strong relationship. While reading the profound letters they wrote to each other you feel as if you were there with them, feeling every emotion they felt. This biography also includes great stories and antecdotes that will keep you laughing, crying, or shouting for joy for hours. The effects this biography has on you are numerous, but the strongest one would have to be one of awe. Their marriage is a marriage to look up to. They did have troubled times. Like, when Winston went to join in the action of World War I after his loss of the position of First Lord of the Admiralty. Or of the times before WWII when Winston was trying so hard to get people to listen to him about the danger and potency of Hitler and the Nazis. They stayed together in good times and in bad and in sickness and in health. They stayed together until the death of Winston. I highly recommend this book so that you can experience this wonderful and lasting marriage and all that comes along with it.
