Bought it at a second hand book market at my workplace. A fascinating read, though you've got to have some stamina to make it through it. I learned a lot about the Churchills and about British history.

Auf dem jährlichen Weihnachts-Bücherflohmarkt meines Arbeitgebers gekauft. Faszinierend zu lesen, wobei man dazu zugegebenermaßen ein gewisses Maß an Durchhaltevermögen benötigt. Ich habe eine ganze Menge über die Churchills und über die britische Geschichte gelernt.

A well written book, with photos from throughout her life. It illustrates the help she gave to Winston Churchill and the importance of her role as his wife.Her one concern seemed to be the rise of her husband and looking out for his reputation. She did a lot of good to help women in the fight for equality, although Winston didn't always agree with her views.
However, it may have been the norm at that time, but she comes across as a very uncaring mother as the children were passed from the sole charge of one nanny to another. In fact Marigold died in the care of an inexperienced nanny. The children seemed to spend very little time in the same house as their parents. After the death of Winston, she spent more time with her children and seemed to enjoy the role of grandmother.
Worth reading if only to find out about an important person in the life of Winston Churchill and her role in the war time years.

I am taking this with me to the London meetup in March. Hopefully someone there will want o read it. If now it will be wild released for someone else to enjoy.
