If she had simply been the mother of Winston Churchill, her place in history would have been assured. But the Brooklyn-born Jennie was also the most fascinating and desirable woman of her age, the toast and the scandal of two continents throughout her long life.
Volume II, THE DRAMATIC YEARS, tells the second half of her life with its many love affairs, two later marriages and numerous ventures. Through it all she remained if not a devoted mother, then one who encouraged the aspiration of her two sons, one of whom was destined to greatness.
"A captivating biography about a mid-Victorian `modern' woman who was villified, envied, loved, loathed--but never ignored." (The Cleveland Press)
