Set in the glittering realm of the British Empire between the world wars, Mrs. Churchill’s War is the story of a woman’s struggle for empowerment as she grapples with the conflicting claims of love and duty - Casablanca from a woman’s point of view.
It is 1934. Clementine Churchill’s “marriage of the century” to the dynamic, difficult Winston Churchill is in trouble. Searching for renewal, she accepts an invitation on a four-month cruise to the East Indies.
From the beginning, her luxurious voyage does not go as planned. Storms at sea, riots in Burma, the Nazi menace, and a heart-stopping romance with Terence Philip, a young, fascinating, London art dealer, take her to breaking point - and beyond.
Clementine’s struggle with the feelings that threaten to destroy her marriage culminates in a dream of a possible future. Stalked by Komodo dragons, will she live to make her fateful choice between destiny and desire? Historians and those who knew them generally agree, without his wife, Winston Churchill would not have been able to lead Britain to stand alone against the Nazi menace.
If Britain had succumbed, there would have been no way to win the European war - no British bomber bases, no place to launch an assault force, no D-Day. There would have been no way to stop the Nazis.
It is said that behind every great man is a great woman. Never was this more true than with Clementine and Winston Churchill.
Clementine was the beautiful, cultured granddaughter of an Earl. Winston was the grandson of a Duke. Both penniless, against the opposition of their aristocratic families, in 1908 they married for love.
Clementine stood by Winston through thick and thin over the decades. Then, in 1934, Hitler was elected German chancellor, the first Nuremberg rally held, the Gestapo let loose — and yet, the world had other concerns. Winston repeatedly warned of the Nazi menace - and was ignored by all but Clementine and a loyal few.
Yet also by 1934 Clementine had given her all in caring for her famous, but difficult husband and knew she needed a change of scene if she was to continue in her vital role and face the challenges that lay ahead. In search of renewal, Clementine joined an expedition to capture a Komodo Dragon — and fell in love.
Clementine’s struggle with the challenges of the expedition and the feelings that threatened to destroy her marriage was her personal, private war. Clementine’s decision to return to Winston — and his acceptance of her new role — was vital to their marriage — to their place in history — and to the history of the world. In the end, Clementine’s journey of personal empowerment made her Winston’s equal partner. They became the couple that won the war.
