    PDF ukrbank.pro ô Clementine Kindle ½ clementine book, Clementine PDF/EPUBWow I really AM impressed This is VERY good It starts out good and amazingly enough gets better and better It is about time somebody turned their focus on Winston Churchill's wife a person behind the scenes who did so much On completionI liked this book because it so well portrays the complicated relationships between the members of the Churchill family – Winston and his wife Clementine and their five children I thought about the love between Winston and Clementine One sees both the love and also the hurt they caused each other I thought about the parents’ respective relationships with the children No two relationships were the same and this gives food for thought Did Clementine learn from her earlier mistakes in child raising? Could Clementine ever relate to her children as Winston did? How did the childre

    PDF ukrbank.pro ô Clementine Kindle ½ clementine book, Clementine PDF/EPUBMs Purnell has written a fascinating look at the wife of probably the 20th Century’s greatest citizen of Great Britain and maybe it’s greatest prime minister The author had the advantage of thousands of letters and notes passed between them over the course of their lives and it allowed her to paint a very complete picture of both

    PDF ukrbank.pro ô Clementine Kindle ½ clementine book, Clementine PDF/EPUBThere's a point where you're reading a biography that you don't like and can't figure out whether it's the author or the subject that is annoying you The author kept telling me Mrs Churchill was a fabulous witty character but then never gave me an example of her wit Most of the direct uotes are from letters between her and her husband where she's nagging him about something Mrs Churchill comes across as angry and brittle The type of woman who gets annoyed at her husband so spends an extra month on ski holiday in the Alps to spite him She comes across as unpleasant without being really interesting But maybe it's just the author

    PDF ukrbank.pro ô Clementine Kindle ½ clementine book, Clementine PDF/EPUBUnlike her American counterpart Eleanor Roosevelt Clementine Churchill has received relatively little recognition or approbation from history Eleanor is heralded as one of the great women of the century in her own right; indeed she lived such a separate life from her eually famous husband Franklin Roosevelt that her role as a wife is very much the least of the hats she wore In contrast whatever fame or recognition Clementine has earned over the years her name is always coupled with that of Winston never independentlyAnd that is probably the way Clementine would have wanted it as Sonia Purnell portrays in this admirable biography Winston Churchill was Clementine's first second and third priorities one of her daughters once commented only half humorously And he was than enough to take up anyone's attention History has remembered Churchill as such a colossal figure that it is than refreshing to take

    PDF ukrbank.pro ô Clementine Kindle ½ clementine book, Clementine PDF/EPUBClementine Churchill lived an amazing life She was incredibly under appreciated both in her time and now I feel like I know a fair amount about Eleanor Roosevelt who was an incredible advocate Clementine Churchill may well have done for Britain and the free world than Eleanor but has received almost no credit Born into impoverished nobility she was about a decade younger than Winston Churchill This book draws heavily from the copious correspondence between Winston and Clementine They were generally not model parents and the book does not sugar coat their shortcomings in this area Clementine was privy to most of what Winston dealt with including state secrets She advised and challenged Winston and was often the only one who could challenge him She tempered him in many ways and often re wrote speeches and memos For a book where you know how it will end there are no secrets about history it was a gripping read I even pushed it ah

    PDF ukrbank.pro ô Clementine Kindle ½ clementine book, Clementine PDF/EPUBBarely had time to listen to the audiobook I definitely don’t have time for a uality review right now However the book was great I’m always fascinated at hearing about “great” women’s foibles Maybe that’s the deviant in me but I like seeing the dichotomy of greatness and failure It’s nice to see that even the “greats” weren’t the “perfects”which is encouraging to me Clementine was an excellent wife to Winston but not a great mother This was a great overdue biography
