The Churchill Sisters
The Extraordinary Lives of Winston and Clementine’s Daughters
by Dr. Rachel Trethewey
Winston Churchill was/is a figure known to many for his outsize life and accomplishments. I have previously read several books about him as well as both fiction and non-fiction titles about Clementine.
This book, however, explores a different aspect of the Churchill family, the lives of their daughters and the Chuchills as parents. I was aware that tragically one of the Churchills’ daughters died too young and that there was a brother. I had also read a bit about Mary. I did not know the other sisters though and now feel that I do.
This title tells an interesting story about these daughters, their lives, their times and those around them. By the way, those around them included their cousins, the Mitford girls. Each of the Churchill siblings is brought to life here and, as is generally true of siblings, each had a unique personality.
Those interested in social history, biography and/or the Churchills will welcome this title. I do recommend it.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.
