Clementine Churchill

The Private Life of A Public Figure

Book - 1997
Rate this:
In this biography, Joan Hardwick explores why Clementine Churchill felt it necessary to protect an assumed persona by disguising her political conflicts with her husband, her questioning of the soundness of his judgement, her dislike of his extravagance and love of luxury, her disappointment at the lack of passion in her marriage and her dismay at her failure as a mother. She asks why Clementine Churchill was so concerned to present herself as a calm, confident and controlled person when she was in fact subject to violent fits of temper and jealousy which left her weak and debilitated. The author also questions why for so long periods of her life her proven abilities as an organizer and her talent for inspring trust in others were put aside.
