Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ann | 12/14/2013

    " An interesting biography of Jennie Churchill, Winston Churchill's mother. I had known she was American, but didn't realize what an interesting life she had! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amelia Osterud | 11/7/2013

    " This is well researched book about a very interesting woman. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Donald | 10/27/2013

    " Dull. This woman was not all that remarkable. I found her to be a whining, pampered rich man's daughter who couldn't accept rules for her and her son and tried in every way to circumvent them. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sherry | 9/7/2013

    " Good information, but dry, read more like a compilation of letters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzanne | 7/25/2013

    " Excellent, absorbing and extremely readable. A fascinating account of a fascinating woman. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura Lee | 4/21/2013

    " Well researched. Pretty good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 9/28/2012

    " I am into all things Churchill, so I enjoyed this audiobook. She was amazing. This account of Jennie is good companion reading to enjoy with "The Last Lion" about her son Winston. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Deborah | 8/13/2012

    " The subject is interesting but the writing is unclear and inconsistent. I haven't finished reading it yet and may not get around to it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sally | 5/4/2012

    " As a biographer of Jennie's sister-in-law, Lily, Duchess of Marlborough, I am always on the lookout for new information about Jennie and her Churchill family. This recent book summed up the known material about her in a workmanlike manner. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 sasha | 2/20/2012

    " Such potential, but Sebba didn't pull it off. Jennie Churchill was an incredible woman, I want to read more about her, but this biography was frustrating and in some ways dull. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jean Lauterbach | 12/7/2011

    " I love all things Churchill. The story/history is great,but the writing is a bit dry. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Demi | 8/27/2011

    " Fascinating life these Churchills lived; so different from mine. I think Jennie was way ahead of her time. I find it amazing Winston Churchill turned out so well given his upbringing; i.e. he was basically ignored by his parents. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janel | 10/18/2010

    " Excellent book. Extremely readable. I've read a lot about Winston Churchill but not about his mother. Recommend to anyone who enjoys history. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jaime | 5/22/2010

    " The first few chapters were interesting and easy to read but now I'm stalled. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzanne | 2/24/2010

    " Excellent, absorbing and extremely readable. A fascinating account of a fascinating woman. "
