Note to self: don't read any more books by Marie Benedict. Too much hagiography for my tastes. I wish she wouldn't use first person. By the end of the book, I had no sympathy for Clementine Churchill. Her shortcomings were not humanizing, and her successes were just underwhelming. I thought of giving this two stars for the style, but I guess begrudgingly I did learn some things, and I guess that's why I thought of reading it in the first place. But enough is enough for this style for me.

A fascinating novel woven around the facts of the life of a woman in early 20th century America as she grew up living the life of a white female but she and her family being of coloured background. Her achievements in gaining an education and subsequently becoming the librarian of a private collection of art and historical manuscripts owned by wealth businessman J.P. Morgan was very well written with the two authors exploring her challenges, dreams and achievements across the decades.

Historical fiction based on the life of Hedy Lamarr (nee Hedwig Kiesler), not only her acting career but on her scientific discoveries, including a radio-frequency torpedo guidance system. Born to non-practicing Jewish parents in a wealthy Vienna neighborhood, Ms. Kiesler found early film success in a risqué movie called Ecstasy, but her nudity in the film haunts her efforts to be taken seriously. While performing a play, she catches the eye of a wealthy, older arms manufacturer and dealer, Fritz Mandl, who woos her relentlessly until she agrees to marry him. Once married, though, he insists she give up her acting career, and he virtually imprisons her in their homes. Nonetheless, while their frequent dinner guests see her as a pretty decoration on his arm, none suspects she understands all their talk about weapons and other military secrets. She eventually escapes from Mandl to England and then to Hollywood, where she returns to acting but also begins inventing things using, as a springboard, information carelessly revealed to her during the dinner parties she and Mandl hosted in Austria. Fascinating story.… (mere)

Historical fiction based on England’s eccentric, aristocratic (but nearly penniless) Mitford family, set in the 1930s during the Great Depression and the rise of fascist movements and charismatic autocrats, culminating in World War II. Three of the Mitford sisters – Nancy, Diana, and Unity – become important figures in the torrid World War II political climate, and the story unfolds through their alternating narration. They are also cousins of Winston Churchill. Benedict breathes life into these high-spirited, intelligent, cultured, and self-indulgent members of the Bright Young Things set, and takes readers into the inner sanctum of the Third Reich. The story is one of intrigue and a family ripped apart by their pro- and anti-fascist views, presented in Benedict’s always excellent, nuanced prose.… (mere)
