A Weekend at Blenheim
by J.P.Morrissey ’80, Minotaur Books
Winston Churchill, John Singer Sargent and the Duke and Duchess of Marlborough are featured in this work of historical fiction. Intrigue begins when an architect from America is hired to oversee renovations at Blenheim Palace and discovers that all is not polite in British aristocracy. A missing sketchbook, a strangled housemaid and mysterious letters add to the brooding, Gothic tone.
J.P. Morrissey is an editor and writer who lives outside New York City.
