"A master work...Jennie was released to a public that became entranced by her story, and will again be now that she is back in print in this magnificent single volume."
-from the foreword by Sir Martin Gilbert, the official biographer of Winston Churchill

Sourcebooks is bringing the internationally acclaimed New York Times bestseller back for a new generation of readers.

Jennie Churchill was not merely Winston's mother. She was the most captivating and desired woman of her age. Originally from Brooklyn, Jennie became the reigning queen of British society. Beautiful and defiant, she lived with an honesty that made her the talk of two continents.

Sir Martin Gilbert, official biographer of Winston Churchill, writes that Jennie is, "a master work" that "pulses with energy as the author leads us from her cradle to relatively early grave, at the age of sixty-seven, of a woman who finally emerges-under his guiding hand-from the shadow of being a great man's mother, to being a woman in her own right."
