In 1909, Clementine Churchill steps off a train with her new husband, Winston. An angry woman emerges from the crowd to attack, shoving him in the direction of an oncoming train. Just before he stumbles, Clementine grabs him by his suit jacket. This will not be the last time Clementine Churchill saves her husband.
New from Marie Benedict, the New York Times bestselling author of “The Only Woman in the Room”! An incredible novel that focuses on one of the people who had the most influence during World War I and World War II: Clementine Churchill.
“Lady Clementine” is the ferocious story of the brilliant and ambitious woman beside Winston Churchill, the story of a partner who did not flinch through the sweeping darkness of war, and who would not surrender either to expectations or to enemies.
Doors open at 3:30pm for “tea and biscuits” and a meet and greet with Marie. At 4:00pm her presentation starts, followed by a booksigning.
