In September 1908, 23-year-old Clementine Hozier became Mrs. Winston Churchill. As a powerful statesman’s wife, Clementine was expected to be an intuitive and devoted woman playing a supporting role to her husband’s endeavors. However, Clementine Churchill would be more than just the woman behind one of history’s most powerful men.
Through the decades of Winston’s political prowess and key military roles, Clementine supported him and served as his “secret weapon,” – saving his skin countless times and providing key insights into his political relations. Clementine weathered two world wars and overcame the expectations of what a woman can do. She never relinquished her independence or her values.
Lady Clementine gives a new look at one of the unsung women of history. Marie Benedict, author of The Only Woman in the Room, Carnegie’s Maid, and The Other Einstein, creates a compelling tale of historical fiction. This book paints a realistic picture of the trials and victories of the wife of Winston Churchill and provides a personal perspective on the Churchill family.
