The story takes place at the opening of a new century, one that held forth all kinds of promises, especially for women. In this post-Victorian Fifth Avenue milieu, Lily Bart, an unmarried woman of 29 with dwindling prospects, needs a husband badly. She lives beyond her means, relying on the grudging charity of her elderly aunt. She is the kind of girl who would make an admirable decoration on some fine gentleman's arm, but there is a liveliness--a knowingness--in her eyes that alarms potential suitors. Lily is unsuccessful in her search for a haven, because she values her emotional and financial independence. To her eternal sorrow, it is other women, the doyennes of high society, who obliquely, ruthlessly, keep that independence forever out of poor Lily's reach.

Winston and Clementine Churchill wrote to each other constantly throughout the fifty-seven years of their life together, and this comprehensive collection of personal correspondence has been authoritatively edited by their daughter Mary Soames. Spontaneous and unselfconscious, the letters serve not only as a revealing portrait of Winston's and Clementine's characters and their relationship, but also as a unique political and social history. 'Speaking for Themselves' provides rare insight into Churchill's extraordinary career, and gives us the couples various reactions to both world-shaking events and domestic crises. Above all, their correspondence reveals their 'enduring and heroic partnership', built on a foundation of affection, humour and loyalty.
