Anne Sebba, acclaimed for her biography of Mother Teresa, reveals it took an American beauty just three days to land Lord Randolph Churchill.

GREAT READ!

What did you love best about Jennie Churchill?

An all round woman who flirted with other men, put up with a man who had an STD and was the power behind the greatest Briton and the only man who stood up against Hitler!

Fantastic history

A fantastic historical novel based on good research and documentation. It is telling, fascinating, intelligent and even scandalous. I good read if you want to know more about Churchill and his American roots.

Very Good

I really liked the book but I must admit I did get tired of a lot of the same old same old. She was an amazing character.

Jennie, a true displaced American Woman.

I had heard of the early book Jenny and found this to be what I thought the other would have been.
A true character and lived by her own rules. I am quite it drove the English crazy.
Her beauty so envied.
Wonderful read!

A Historical Tabloid

I’d hoped to discover more of the history about this interesting woman. This book is a recounting of speculative gossip about Lady Churchill’s infidelities and the people in her social circle. She is presented as a self absorbed, promiscuous spendthrift who abdicated the rearing of her children to others. It was disappointing and very boring. The performance by the reader was the only positive point of the book.
