I found this hardcover, signed by the author, at a local Salvation Army thrift shop. It's a look at the long and colorful history of Blenheim Palace, built in the early 1700s and famed for many things - not least, its connection with Winston Churchill, who was born there. The book deals with many of the noble residents of the house, the Dukes of Marlborough, and the various relatives and other celebrities who visited. It also touches on the ups and downs of the family and of the structure itself - though the book does not touch on the many appearances of the building and grounds in film and television in more recent years. (Some of the family drama clearly inspired Edith Wharton's novel The Buccaneers...)
