My Darling Winston is an edited collection of the personal letters between Winston Churchill and his mother, Jenny Jerome, between 1881--when Churchill was just six--and 1921, the year of Jenny's death. Many of these intimate letters-- between two gifted writers--are published here for the first time, and the exchange of letters between mother and son has never before been published as a correspondence. A significant addition to the Churchill canon, My Darling Winston traces Churchill's emotional, intellectual, and political development as confided to his primary mentor, his mother. As well as providing a basic narrative of Jenny's and Winston Churchill's lives over a forty-year period, My Darling Winston tells the story of a changing mother-son relationship, characterized at the outset by Churchill's emotional and practical dependence on his mother, but which is dramatically reversed as her life begins to disintegrate tragically towards its end.
