Bestselling author Marie Benedict likes to focus her books on the lives of women whose stories have been overlooked or underappreciated. Her latest book, Lady Clementine (Sourcebooks Landmark, 2020), looks at Clementine Churchill, the influential wife of British Prime Minister Winston Churchill who refused to surrender to expectations or to enemies. Benedict is a Boston College graduate and author of several books, including The Only Woman in the Room, a novel about Hedy Lamarr that was chosen as a Barnes & Noble Book Club selection.
