Summary
In 20th century Princeton, New Jersey, a powerful curse besets the wealthiest of the town's families. When it causes the disappearance of a young bride, her brother sets out to find her and ends up crossing paths with the town's most formidable members--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
