Churchill’s daughter’s signed memoir—destined to be a collectible
Before she was The Lady Soames, she was Mary, a young woman of barely 18 when Winston Churchill delivered his Finest Hour speech to war-torn Britain in 1940. Yet she knew the Prime Minister well: she was his daughter. In A Daughter’s Tale, Mary Soames opens her private diary and shares the stories of growing up as the youngest child of parents she adored, Winston and Clementine Churchill.
A gunner in the women’s auxiliary during the war, Mary accompanied her father to North Africa for his meeting with FDR, and to Quebec when he helped to plan Operation Overlord—what became known to the world as D-Day. And so some of the most historic moments of the twentieth century, orchestrated by one of the most extraordinary of statesmen, are captured through the intimate lens of one who knew Winston Churchill as prime minister and cherished him as Papa.
Lady Soames has kindly signed (on bookplate) copies of the first U.S. edition of her memoir for our customers. It is destined to be a collectible—and it’s a wonderful read, as well.
