Summary
Tells the story of the 50-year marriage of John and Sarah Churchill, the first Churchills to make their mark on British history. John was a handsome and charismatic general who won the battles that shaped the future of England. Sarah was a fiery beauty whose passion and intellect made her a favorite at court and won the undying devotion of her husband. The turbulent history of 17th century England is seen through the eyes of Sarah, and are filtered through her love for John and their shared love of England
