Book Spotlight: Lady Clementine by Marie Benedict - now out in Paperback!!!

Earlier this year, I read Lady Clementine by Marie Benedict when it was first released in hardcover, and I really enjoyed it! You can read my thoughts on the book here

Today the book is being released in paperback and to celebrate, I am helping the publishers get the word out. Lady Clementine was the first book I've read by Marie Benedict but it certainly won't be the last!



Title: Lady Clementine
Author: Marie Benedict
Published: August 2020, Sourcebooks Landmark
Format: Paperback, 336 pages

Summary: 
From Marie Benedict, the New York Times bestselling author of The Only Woman in the Room! An incredible novel that focuses on one of the people who had the most influence during World War I and World War II: Clementine Churchill.

In 1909, Clementine steps off a train with her new husband, Winston. An angry woman emerges from the crowd to attack, shoving him in the direction of an oncoming train. Just before he stumbles, Clementine grabs him by his suit jacket. This will not be the last time Clementine Churchill will save her husband.

Lady Clementine is the ferocious story of the ambitious woman beside Winston Churchill, the story of a partner who did not flinch through the sweeping darkness of war, and who would not surrender either to expectations or to enemies.



Praise for Lady Clementine:

"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

 
"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

"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, USA TODAY author of The Two-Family House and The Wartime Sisters
