Mary Soames, born in 1922, is the youngest and only surviving child of Winston and Clementine Churchill. During World War II she served in mixed antiaircraft batteries in England and northwestern Europe and accompanied her father as an aide on several wartime overseas journeys.

Mary Soames, born in 1922, is the youngest and only surviving child of Winston and Clementine Churchill. In 1947 she married Captain Christopher Soames, later Lord Soames, the politician and diplomat, a vice president of the European Commission and the last governor of Southern Rhodesia. He died in 1987; they had five children.

Clementine Ogilvy Spencer-Churchill, Baroness Spencer-Churchill, GBE (née Hozier; 1 April 1885 – 12 December 1977) was the wife of Winston Churchill and a life peer in her own right. Although legally the daughter of Sir Henry Hozier and Lady Blanche Hozier (a daughter of David Ogilvy, 10th Earl of Airlie), her paternity is a subject of much debate, as Lady Blanche was well known for infidelity.

Mary Spencer-Churchill was born at Chartwell, in the county of Kent in southeast England, on September 15, 1922. She was the youngest child of former United Kingdom Prime Minister Winston Churchill. After her husband's death in 1987, she wrote a series of books about her family including Clementine Churchill: The Biography of a Marriage, which won the Wolfson History Prize, and A Daughter's Tale: The Memoir of Winston Churchill's Youngest Child. She was named a fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and a Dame of the British Empire.

When Clementine, Lady Spencer-Churchill died in 1977, aged 92, she had become a much-loved and iconic figure to the British public. In spite of being instantly recognisable as the seemingly serene, cool and detached wife of Winston Churchill, she had nonetheless shunned publicity throughout her life.

Clementine Churchill. For the years of their marriage she supported him through the triumphs, disasters and tensions that ruled his public and private life. As a shy, passionate and highly-strung woman, Clementine's self-control was constantly tested to the utmost by the turmoil of public life and in the no less harrowing family crises and the ever-present financial anxieties.

And ironically in a book intended to celebrate Clementine’s own story, she presents that story largely in terms of Winston’s career.

Clementine, Lady Spencer-Churchill died in 1979, aged 92. Instantly recognizable as the seemingly serene, cool and derached wife of Winston Churchill she had nonetheless shunned publicity throughout her life. In this biography her daughter, Mary Soames, throws light on her mother, writing of Clementine's 57-year marriage to Winston, her strongly held political views and a life which spans many of the major events of the 20th century. Clementine Churchill was the perfect wife for Winston. For 75 years she supported him through the triumphs, disasters and tensions which ruled his public and private life. As a young girl she had a strength of character and distinction of mind, allied to outstanding good looks, that attracted the young and impetuous Winston Churchill. The early years of her marriage coincided with the heyday of the reforming Liberal Government, in which Winston was a leading figure: she was later to describe them as the happiest of her life. Always Winston trusted her completely and she became a valuable counsellor and companion. Clementine was shy, passionate and highly strung, and her self-control was tested to its utmost in the turmoil of public life and in the no less harrowing family crises and the ever-present financial anxieties. But one facet of her life was steadfast: the love she shared with her husband, which was to sustain them both even through the most trying times.

Hi_Jacker
This work, an update of an earlier work, really moved me. The lives of Clemmie and Winston are an inspiration to all. Yes, they were of the leisure class. However, finances were not always not worrisome.
Basically, their family lived most of their lives on Winston's pen.
He was inspirational, brilliant and effective in leading the British people through World War II and in the early 1950's. At all times, Clementine was his rock, a beneficent leader of her own causes to help people who were suffering. She personally witnessed the Russian people's suffering when she visited Russia. After that she began a fund for Russia, raising millions of English pounds. She was honored over and over again for instance with an honorary Doctor of Laws degree. Finally,she was made a Baronness and actually served in the House of Lords.

What an amazing woman! I've read so much about Winston; it was interesting to be on the other side of him and Clementine was a delight - a strong woman in her own right. I enjoyed the book thoroughly and if you like reading about strong women (not bossy women) but strong self-sufficient women you will enjoy this book as well. And if you love Winston Churchill you will love this book doubly.

This is the biography of Winston Churchills wife written by her youngest child, Mary.....lots of new information about the life they led by an insider who knew everything, or almost everything that was going on....a great read....

I had to read this book after finishing Gilbert Martin's bio, CHURCHILL. In that read, Clementine became an enigma to me and I needed to figure out her wiring and better understand her significant contribution to this great man's life. She too was a great woman in her own right. One needs to read this well written biography of a marriage to get a more complete picture of the Churchill team. I appreciated Mary Soammes honesty; she enables us to know her parents on a deeper and more human level. I consider it an important read.

This is a very complete non-fiction book..It contains letters and remembrances of the loyalty and love that the Churchill's shared..It is rather dry..but concise..I have enjoyed picking it up and reading where ever the book opens..

I have always found Clementine Churchill to be fascinating. I am glad there are
books about her life and this is one of the best. It was writen by her daughter.
I liked reading about her childhood. I believe it certainly formed her personality.
Without delving too deeply,i think her youth "hurt" part of her and yet made her
strong in other ways. Clementine is just as important as Winston. What a great
lady she was! I will remember her always.

probably accurate
I love this book so much I do not want it to end. Mary Soames draws you into her parents life, so much so, you feel part of the family.
This is a love story like no other.
