Editorial Reviews


"In her latest novel, Lady Clementine, Marie Benedict has gifted us all with another thoughtful and illuminating behind-the-scenes look at one of history’s most unusual and extraordinary women. Benedict stuns readers with a glorious assortment of Clementine Churchill’s most personal secrets: her scandalous childhood, her unexpected role as a social outsider, her maternal insecurities, and the daily struggles she faces to smooth her husband’s political blunders and to keep up with his relentless demands for guidance and attention. With a historian's eye and a writer’s heart, Benedict provides an unforgettable glimpse into the private world of a brilliant woman whose impact and influence on world events deserves to be acknowledged." - Lynda Cohen Loigman, author of The Two-Family House and The Wartime Sisters

"The atmospheric prose of Marie Benedict draws me in every single time. Lady Clementine’s powerful and spirited story is both compelling and immersive. Benedict fully inhabits the measured and intelligent voice of Clementine Churchill. Entranced throughout, I discovered the secrets behind a familiar story I thought I knew. Deftly moving from the early nineteen hundreds through World War II, Benedict skillfully paints a vivid picture of the times and life of Clementine, the remarkable woman who was the steady force beside Winston Churchill." - Patti Callahan Henry, New York Times bestselling author of Becoming Mrs. Lewis

"Benedict is a true master at weaving the threads of the past into a compelling story for today. Here is the fictionalized account of the person who was the unequivocal wind beneath Winston Churchill’s wings – a woman whose impact on the world-shaper that was WW2 has been begging to be told. A remarkable story of remarkable woman." - Susan Meissner, bestselling author of The Last Year of the War

"Winning…the personality of Clementine reverberates in this intimate, first-person account. An intriguing novel, and the focus on the heroic counsel of a woman that has national and international impacts will resonate." - Publishers Weekly

"A rousing tale of ambition and love." - Kirkus Reviews

"Well-researched, illuminating account of a complex, intelligent woman." - Booklist

"Benedict affords us a spirited fictional account of Clementine Churchill, something the New York Times best-selling author of The Other Einstein and The Only Woman in the Room should do well. Here, Clementine is tough, ambitious, and every bit as influential as her husband." - Library Journal

"This outstanding story deserves wide readership. Fans of historical fiction, especially set around World War II; readers who appreciate strong, intelligent female leads; or those who just want to read a compelling page-turner will enjoy this gem of a novel." - Library Journal, starred review

" A true tale of Clementine’s ferocity and ambition through political unrest and two world wars, the novel spotlights one of the most influential behind-the-scenes women of her time." - Parade

"A fascinating fictionalized account of the consummate political wife." - People Magazine

"Benedict gives us a novel based on the life of the woman who historians say quietly advised Winston Churchill throughout his career." - Glamour

5.0 out of 5 stars Lady Clementine Has Her Say
By Syd Young on January 12, 2020
I’ve been waiting for this book; it more than delivered. We think of Churchill as a singular man. Now, we know the truth: there is no Churchill without Clementine, just as there is no Roosevelt without Eleanor. Clementine was not elected to a post, but more than did her duty.

Chalk full of marriage, politics, and endurance, this book is for both women and men. And I’m glad Clementine has had her say. The conversations and tone of those conversations between the Churchills seems spot on. Also, I loved its deeper story of how Clementine had to learn to help her “nerves,” which were, in fact, caused by Churchill, despite their great love. He was just a big personality. Or perhaps marriage/ life is just hard, and we women all need to admit to our need for self-care (and give ourselves permission to actually take time off). Mommy guilt and a drive for more are also a deeply resonating part of the book. All this packed into a fast paced treatment of the events from a new, wonderfully vocal and modern female voice.

Clementine speaks of everything Churchill did as “we” did this and “we” did that, just as she claims responsibility for helping Churchill with all of his fine speeches. Other than seeing how she was portrayed in “The Darkest Hour,” I confess to not knowing much about Clementine; I kept wondering how the Brits are going to like this addition to the story of one of their greatest heroes. I, for one, loved getting to know her and hope the book is developed into a movie.

One writing difference which may cause listeners/ readers to hit the back button a few times: the book is written in present tense with backstory in past tense. May Hilary Mantel’s legacy continue (think Wolf Hall); it helps make HF seem as if is unfolding before our eyes, rather than being so yesterday.

This is Benedict’s finest book. Bravo.
