With a crystal-clear narration, Juliet Stevenson brings listeners into the world of Winston and Clementine Churchill's daughters. Stevenson's resonant voice unfolds the historical narrative as she skillfully layers in each unique personality with a crisp characterization while retaining an unmistakable Churchillian tenor. Diana, while politically astute, struggles with depression; feisty Sarah was nicknamed "Mule" as a child; steadfast Mary's distinguished service is reminiscent of Winston's own; and young Marigold's early death casts a tragic shadow on the whole family. In this intimate portrait Stevenson unveils the sometimes tragic, always inspiring stories of these women as their devotion to their celebrated parents and each other is sustained against a backdrop of complex world events. Stevenson's masterful depiction re-creates the era of Britain's finest hour--and the remarkable Churchill daughters who witnessed it firsthand.
