Подзаголовок: The memoir of winston and clementine churchill`s youngest child
Поставляется из: Англии
Описание: In this charming and intimate memoir, Winston Churchills youngest daughter shares stories from her remarkable life--and tells of the unbreakable bond she forged with her father through some of the most tumultuous years in British history.
Now approaching her ninetieth birthday, Mary Soames is the only surviving child of Winston and Clementine Churchill. Through a combination of personal reminiscences and never-before-published diary entries, she describes what it was like growing up as the scion of one of the lions of twentieth-century statecraft. Warm memories of a childhood spent roaming the grounds of the familys country estate, tending to a small menagerie of pets, evoke the idyllic mood of England between the wars. As she matures into one of her fathers most trusted companions, we are given rare glimpses inside the glittering social milieu through which the Churchills moved--as well as the rough-and-tumble world of British politics. With fly-on-the-wall immediacy, Mary describes the momentous debate in Parliament where Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain was driven from office, paving the way for Winston Churchills ascension and the grueling crucible of World War II.
During the war Mary served as a gunner in the womens auxiliary, helping to shoot down the German V-1 rockets then bedeviling London. Styling herself as Private M. Churchill to avoid publicity, she led a unique double life that comes vividly alive again in the retelling. Splitting her time between luncheons at Chequers--where she spent time with the likes of Lord Mountbatten--and the turret of an anti-aircraft battery, she was never far from the center of the action. Hitler even reportedly hatched a plan, never consummated, to hire spies to seduce her in order to gain access to secret British war plans. She attended the Potsdam Conference as her fathers aide-de-camp, arranging a memorable dinner with Harry Truman and Josef Stalin (whom she acidly remembers as small, dapper, and rather twinkly). And when British voters overwhelmingly turned on Churchill in the 1945 election, it is left to Mary to recount the pain and devastation her father could never publicly express.
The mutual love and affection between Mary Soames and her parents pours forth from every page of this elegantly written memoir. A Daughters Tale is both a moving personal history and a source of untold insight into one of the enduring icons of British national life.

All his life, fifteen-year-old San Francisco Soames has been told he is just like his father. But when his father announces that he's moving in with another man, Cisco starts questioning the resemblance. To top it off, he's suspended from school for fighting - even though all he did was provide his face as the punching bag for the school bully - and then accused of putting an old man in a coma.

Things go from bad to worse when his parents want to send him from their small town in Vermont to British Columbia to keep him out of trouble.

Trouble is the last thing Cisco wants. All he wants is to be left alone so he can figure out just how things have gone so wrong. And British Columbia That's two thousand miles away - who is going to keep an eye on his ten-year-old twin sisters while he's gone? Plus he'll be staying with his uncle, someone he's never even seen before, someone who runs a Rocky Mountain Dude ranch, someone who is known in the family as "Uncle Party."

Things couldn't get any worse, could they?
