By his own admission, without his wife Clementine, Churchill might never have become Prime Minister. Sonia Purnell explores the peculiar dynamics of this fascinating union. From the personal and political upheavals of the Great War, through to Clementine’s desperate efforts to preserve her husband‘s health during World War Two, Sonia presents the inspiring story of one of the most important women in modern history.

Sonia is an author, journalist and broadcaster. Her book, Just Boris: A Tale of Blond Ambition, was long listed for the Orwell Prize.
