A Daughter's tale by Mary Soames

About the book

Born in 1922, Mary Soames is the only surviving child of Winston and Clementine Churchill. Her memoir draws us into the almost surreal world where the ordinary details of family life proceed against a background of cataclysmic events.

  1. Review by Enjoying Books
    An insight into the Churchill family from his youngest daughter. Some said “just name dropping” others “how the other half live” but we became involved in the characters and the developing war under Winston Churchill.
