Description - Jennie Churchill: Winston's American Mother by Anne Sebba
Jennie Churchill was said to have had two hundred lovers, three of whom she married. But her love for her son Winston never wavered. JENNIE CHURCHILL is an intimate picture of her glittering but ultimately tragic life, and the powerful mutual infatuation between her and her son. Anyone who wants to understand Winston must start here, with this revelatory interpretation. Anne Sebba has gained unprecedented access to private family correspondence, newly discovered archival material and interviews with Jennie's two surviving granddaughters. She draws a vivid and frank portrait of her subject, repositioning Jennie as a woman who refused to be cowed by her era's customary repression of women.
