I had just finished Erik Larson’s new book on Winston Churchill and found myself wanting, no, needing to know more about the veritable force that was his wife Clementine. One of Goodread’s recommended books on her was Lady Clementine by Marie Benedict.

I was very excited to jump in, but to be honest, I did not love what I eventually jumped into.

The stories were interesting. I liked to see her point of view of her husband, her role in politics, and in the women’s suffrage movement. However, the story was told in first person, present. I am not the biggest fan of this form a narration and it influnced my reeading experrience.

Did I learn about her? Yes. Did I love the reading experience? Not exactly.

But if you want to read more about Clementine and you do not mind this type of narration, this may be a great read for you!
