The Churchill Sisters

I have always been so fascinated by Winston Churchill, his rise in politics, his relationship with Queen Elizabeth, his relationship with FDR, and his family. He is such an important person that played such a major role at a very pivotal time of history. He’s someone whose decisions made a global impact. I always like to think that people are in the right place at the right time, and Churchill, Roosevelt, and Queen Elizabeth most definitely were.

The Churchill Sisters, by Dr. Rachel Trethewey, is the first non-fiction book I have read in about two years. So much has happened in such a short amount of time, things that will undoubtably be in history books, that I honestly just really haven’t been in the mood for anything non-fiction. Spoiler alert: I absolutely loved this book. The Churchill sisters is so well organized, I loved how Trethewey chose to organize the chapters of the book and how she wove all the family members stories together. 


The Churchill Sisters explores the relationship that each sister had with Winston and their mother, Clementine, their unique personalities, the adversity each faced at different points in time, and the paths they each chose in life. 


I honestly cannot recommend this book enough. The lives of the Churchill sister are so beautiful told by Trethewey.
