SKU E1625

This book will be featured as a part of our Ike Book Talk Series March 10th, 2020 at the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum. The Ike Book Talks take place on the 2nd Tuesday of every other month.


As a best-selling book and as an outstanding movie, Mrs. Miniver's adventures with her three unpredictable children and generally predictable husband have charmed millions. Whether it is Mrs. Miniver at tea, Mrs. Miniver sliding through a revolving door on someone else's push, or through Jan Struther's gift for keen observation commonplace events become significant, and ordinary people become extraordinary. The most extraordinary of all is Mrs. Miniver herself, who is one of the truly endearing characters of modern fiction.

This edition of Mrs. Miniver, published on the fiftieth anniversary of the book's original publication in the United States in 1940, features a new introduction by Greer Garson, who won the 1942 Academy Award for best actress for her portrayal of Mrs. Miniver.
