Praise for Clementine:

“An astute, pacey account of a woman who hardly ever emerged from the shadows. It is a sharp analysis of what it meant to be a politician’s wife . . . that shows how much we can learn about Winston Churchill from his wife and marriage.”—The Wall Street Journal

“Thorough and engaging . . . Purnell’s extensive and insightful biography offers a much welcome portrait of Clementine Churchill, a woman whose remarkable life has long been overshadowed by her famous husband.”—The Washington Post

“Thorough and engrossing.”—The New York Times

“A fascinating and well-written account of a woman who played a key role in many pivotal moments of early-20th-century British and world politics.”Minneapolis Star Tribune

“Until this biography, Clementine’s influence had been completely overlooked and undervalued by Winston’s biographers. Clementine was a complicated, mercurial figure, and Purnell does a wonderful job painting a full picture of a woman who was an excellent wife, a mediocre at best mother, and privy to some of the most profound moments of the modern era.”Jessica Grose, Lenny Letter
