TOP 500 REVIEWERon 29 January 2016
Anita Leslie was uniquely placed to write Jennie, Mother of Winston Churchill. She was an accomplished biographical author and a first cousin to Churchill with access to personal papers and family memories to draw upon. I read this in hardback many years ago and was pleased to find it recently published as an ebook by Endeavour Press.

Lady Jennie was a remarkable woman. She was beautiful, brave and intelligent. A mother who adored her son and often pandered to his whims. It's interesting to learn about the early life of a man destined to be a key player on a world stage. I enjoyed the personal touch that Leslie brings to this work and I found her vivid portrayal of Edwardian life fascinating reading. Lady Jennie didn't have the easiest marriage to Churchill's father and she married again after he died. She was privileged, but life wasn't always kind to her. This book is as fresh now as it was when first published some 40 years ago. Easy to read and filled with slices of social history.

A fascinating true story of Winston Churchill's American mother. An incredible beauty and intelligent woman. Written with Churchill's concentration as well as other family members, Jenny is a brilliant book.
