Excellent book that gives a great insight into this wonderful and unique woman. While it does touch on Winston's life it is absolutely about Mrs C. Brilliant.

This book is just amazing. It brouht me closer to the already fascinating figure of Clementine Churchill. I love how it brings a new perspective on the achievements of an iconic man and proves that greatness is a more complex phenomenon than just actions and personality of one person. It is very nicely read as well
I found the narrator much too English aristocratic for my (Cdn) liking. Growing up in Canada, I found it hard to follow the story because is assumed a knowledge of the characters. After plowing through most of it I gave up. There are so many good books out there, why waste my time listening to something I was not enjoying.
This book is an unflinching biography of Clemintine Churchill and, incidentally, of a long marriage's ups and downs, triumphs and tragedies. It is beautifully read excepting the chapter where the reader mixes up Austria and Australia. This is one for those interested in modern history.
