Please join us for a discussion of Mary Soamesâ€™, â€œA Daughterâ€™s Tale – The Memoir of Winston and Clementine Churchillâ€™s Youngest Childâ€. Perceptive, funny, always totally honest, it provides an unequalled view of the corridors of power. Mary was neither downstairs nor upstairs: her view was from the nursery, the schoolroom, that of the family member who took no part in the shaping of great events but saw and noted almost everything. It is not the whole story, but it is a vital part of it and one which could not come from any other source.
The book is available at Ben McNally Books, 366 Bay Street, Toronto
