Join us for tea and cookies as we venture into the life of Lady Clementine. Price of the event includes a signed copy of the book and reception.

In 1909, Clementine Churchill 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 saves her husband.

LADY CLEMENTINE is the ferocious story of the brilliant and 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.

Marie Benedict is a lawyer with more than ten years' experience as a litigator at two of the country's premier law firms. She has written several historical novels including THE OTHER EINSTEIN, which tells the tale of Albert Einstein's first wife, a physicist herself, CARNEGIE'S MAID, and the New York Times bestseller THE ONLY WOMAN IN THE ROOM, about actress and inventor Hedy Lamarr.
