That Churchill woman, a novel
Publication year: 2019
Media class: Hardback
Wealthy, privileged, and fiercely independent New Yorker Jennie Jerome took Victorian England by storm when she landed on its shores. As Lady Randolph Churchill, she gave birth to a man who defined the 20th century: her son Winston. But Jennie, reared in the luxury of Gilded Age Newport and the Paris of the Second Empire, lived an outrageously modern life all her own, filled with controversy, passion, tragedy, and triumph. When the 19-year-old beauty agrees to marry the son of a duke she has known only three days, she's instantly swept up in a whirlwind of British politics and the breathless social climbing of the Marlborough House Set, the reckless men who surround Bertie, Prince of Wales. Raised to think for herself and careless of English society rules, the new Lady Randolph Churchill quickly becomes a London sensation: adored by some, despised by others.
