"The record of a remarkably enduring marriage" * The Scotsman *
"Lady Soames, the Churchills' sole surviving child... has edited these letters with great skill, providing a lively commentary and vivid pen portraits of supporting characters" -- Piers Brendon * Mail on Sunday *
"We expect the correspondence of Winston Churchill and his wife, Clementine, to be interesting... and still these letters can astonish: in their scope; in the way their individual brilliance is sustained day by day and year upon year" * Sunday Telegraph *
