A story of great human triumph in the life of the much loved Winston Churchill on the fiftieth anniversary of his death.

1953 is synonymous in the British memory with the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II on June 2, but less well known is what happened in 10 Downing Street on June 23. With Anthony Eden vying for power, the elderly Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, must maintain the confidence of his government, the press and the public.

However, after a diplomatic dinner in which he is on typically sparkling form, Churchill's Italian dining companions are rushed out of the building and his doctor called. The Prime Minister has had a stroke. Churchill is bedbound throughout the summer, and while secrecy agreements have been struck with leading newspaper barons, the potential impact of his health on public life is never far from the minds of his inner circle.

With the help of a devoted young nurse and his indomitable wife, Clementine, Churchill gradually recoups his health. But will he be fit enough to represent Britain on the world stage?- Goodreads
