BRAVO to Benedict for pulling an important character out from the shadow of her husband. I kept thinking about the strength of Lady Clementine and thought how amazing it was that both she and Eleanor Roosevelt did so much to help their countries during World War, too. My NetGalley version didn’t have an afterword to tell how life treated Lady Clementine after World War II, so I had to look it up. I agree that the author ended the story at the right place.

The free world owes Clementine Churchill a huge thank you. Without her influence and support, Winston Churchill would not have been so politically savvy nor would he have had the resolve and staying power needed to hold off the German forces and their allies in both of the great wars of the 20th century. Marie Benedict has shown us a portrait of Clementine that shows us her struggles and her strengths. I would heartily recommend it for book groups as there is much to discuss regarding parenting, marriage, women's rights, and the perils of wartime.

She definitely did not suffer from a diminished ego. But then, she was married to Winston Churchill and you would have to be firm and tough to make that work.
