“My marriage was much the most fortunate and joyous event which happened to me in the whole of my life” - Sir Winston Churchill


My Darling Clementine is the story of a unique relationship, of a woman married to one of the world’s most extraordinary men – a woman who could have basked in her own limelight but chose instead to walk in her husband’s shadow.
What kind of a woman shared the life of this extraordinary man, inspired some of his greatest triumphs, supported and encouraged him?  
Winston Churchill was a statesman the whole world recognized but his wife was the diplomat few know. Clementine Churchill played a bigger part in history than most people realize. 
“… I could never have succeeded without her.”
For many years, Fishman gathered stories from people around her, drawing on letters, documents, diaries and memoirs. The book provides a uniquely moving and enthralling insight into the world of this inspiring woman.
Originally first published in 1963, “My Darling Clementine” became a worldwide bestseller and one of the most successful biographies of the decade. Topping the sales charts all over the world, it soared to number one in the American best sellers and in the UK. Clementine’s story is a classic with true international appeal.

To be available to coincide with the 50th anniversary of Churchill’s death in 2015, a new version is currently being prepared and will be exclusively available as an e publication.


PRESS
'
Enthusiastic reviews, by themselves, do not account for the fact that My Darling Clementine has been a runaway best-seller on two continents. The book’s enormous popularity springs from the richness of the subject matter itself. Her dedication to her unpredictable husband through moments of heartbreak and exultation, her tact and wisdom in nurturing his genius, make this book one of the most memorable love stories of our time. An intimate, humorous and fascinating biography.'
