Having written about the rebellious Mitfords (The Sisters) and daring aviator and world-traveler Beryl Markham (Straight on Til Morning), prolific bestselling biographer Mary S. Lovell now takes on her most challenging subject yet: the Churchills. Beginning her narrative history with their military hero progenitor the first Duke of Marlborough (1650-1722), she introduces us to generations of talented Churchill offspring, including several notable spendthrifts and womanizers. American readers will be particularly fascinated by how the family's fortunes were rescued in the 19th century by marriages to two Manhattan heiresses. And, of course, Sir Winston takes center stage.... Epic; engaging; primed for Father's Day readership.
