Summary
In 20th century Princeton, New Jersey, a powerful curse, which besets the wealthiest of families, causes the disappearance of a young bride, and when her brother sets out to find her, he crosses paths with the town's most formidable people, including Grover Cleveland and Upton Sinclair
Summary
While Woodrow Wilson is president of Princeton University at the turn of the 20th century, a strange European prince, possibly the Devil himself, befuddles members of Princeton's social elite. Several disturbing events occur before the prince runs away with a bride who is the granddaughter of a prominent clergyman. Princeton seems to be cursed, and the question is, can the curse be broken by the end of this surreal historical novel? - Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
