WOW Of all the biographies I have read this one grabbed me and held my attention Purnell the author did excellent research and wove it into a compelling story of the little known woman behind the infamous Winston Churchill The book follows the history of both families and how Clementine and Winston were introduced through both wars and their deaths I found fascinating details about both of them The most striking characteristic was the resolve that Clementine had to do whatever it took to support the man she loved and help him achieve the goals they both knew he was destined to attain Purnell sums up the book deliciously by ending it withShe shored up his inadeuacies moderated his extremes and stopped him from making countless mistakes She was in a way his ultimate authority his conscience and the nearest he had to a direct line to the people Without her by his side sharing the burden it is difficult if not impossible to imagine his becoming the single minded giant who led Britain against almost impossible odds to a victory over tyranny The way she managed a character described by Attlee as fifty percent genius fifty percent bloody fool was itself a type of geniusClementine could not have invested in a partnership that was almost certainly the most important of its time Theirs was the ultimate coalition Nothing has bee seen like it to this day Yes I ask why do we know so little of this powerhouse of a woman Clementine Churchill was an enigma of her time Had Winston passed away 20 years earlier I am certain we would have seen her as a major force in the policical change arena in Great Britain

A comprehensive biography of a woman whose marriage thrust her into the spotlight throughout her life and into the history books forever Clementine Hozier was born in 1885 the second daughter born into a very stormy marriage It's unlikely that her mother's husband was actually her father and Clementine was largely raised by her mother amid ongoing custody disputes with the man she believed to be her father Tragically her elder sister Kitty died as a teenager just leaving Clementine and her younger twin siblings Bill and Nellie who were born in 1888 In 1904 she met Winston Churchill at a party He was already well known for his war stories and publications but did not make a good impression on Clementine who he found to be beautiful and distinctive It wasn't until four years later that they met again and finally hit it off and were married in 1908 The couple had five children together and for the whole of their life Clementine devoted herself to Winston often to the point of exhaustion and illness During her husband's time as Prime Minister during World War II she served as a tireless source of support wisdom advice and a true champion of multiple social causes of her own She passed away in 1977 at the age of 92This is uite a detailed account of Clementine's life and the author spent considerable amounts of time pouring over numerous documents to write it In particular the thousands of letters exchanged between Clementine and her husband Winston served as an invaluable resource in piecing together Clementine's thoughts on a number of events In reading Clementine's story the reader naturally gets much of Winston's as well as their lives were so deeply intertwined for most of their livesThis biography is written by Clementine's youngest daughter Mary This provides a uniue advantage in that the author is able to have easy access to family members friends and her own memories when writing her mother's biography and can provide her own description of her mother Additionally her mother approved of the writing of this book and even reviewed and edited the early chapters at the end of her life On the other hand having been written by a daughter does make me uestion the objectivity somewhat Little true detail is shared about the author's siblings' lives with difficulties and issues only referred to Similarly controversial topics such as Clementine's destruction of a portrait of Winston are presented as a defense of her mother rather than an outlining of events Similarly the family's collective outrage at Winston's physician publishing a book about his health history is felt in the author's passionate attempt to set the record straight I think it should be on record that my father was never ungrateful for nor unmindful of Charles Moran's devoted service to him 557 However overall I felt Soames' biography to be as objective and thorough as possible and admired her ability to provide such a full portrait of her mother's life both the good and the bad Clementine was passionate hard working and could be antisocial and prickly at times She was known for flying into a rage and abruptly leaving the diner tablepartyhouse if provoked But she was also a devoted and loving partner to her Winston and toiled endlessly for the benefit of her country and to do what she felt to be right Winston had no secrets from her She never in fifty seven years betrayed that trust by deed or sign or word 107 A moving and personal account of a woman who played a pivotal role in the history of Britain and indeed the world
