by Judith Hodges (Lafayette, LA): I’ve read several of Larson’s book, but this one was the absolute best. He made WC as lovable and wise as he must’ve been. Such a colorful character, his vision and guidance lead the Brits through one of their “darkest hours”, utterly alone at the time, fighting the Nazis. His oratory was undeniable and necessary for uplifting a battered country. Can’t think of another leader who would’ve persevered as he did. Truly loved it; made me laugh as well as cry! Getting ready to read it again, (had read when it first came out) before my Book Club meets to discuss it.
