This is a remarkable book by John Meade Falkner which appeared for the first time in 1903. The plot of the novel is centered around Edward Westray, a young architect, who has to travel to a very old church and to restore it. However, there he encounters a terrible killing which was presumable caused by the appeals to the title of Lord Blandamer. The main character gets interested and tries to solve the mystery while he is working hard at the restoration. The author describes the peculiarities of the architecture and music as well as the mystery.The book includes a chronological list composed by the author and introduction with explanation made by Christopher Hawtree.

Thomas Woodrow Wilson (1856-1924) was the twentyeighth President of the United States. A devout Presbyterian and leading intellectual of the Progressive Era, he served as president of Princeton University then became the reform governor of New Jersey in 1910. With Theodore Roosevelt and William Howard Taft dividing the Republican vote, Wilson was elected President as a Democrat in 1912. He proved highly successful in leading a Democratic Congress to pass major legislation including the Federal Trade Commission, the Clayton Antitrust Act, the Underwood Tariff, the Federal Farm Loan Act and most notably the Federal Reserve System. Wilson's idealistic internationalism, whereby the U. S. enters the world arena to fight for democracy, progressiveness, and liberalism, has been a highly controversial position in American foreign policy, serving as a model for "idealists" to emulate or "realists" to reject for the following century. His works include: When a Man Comes to Himself (1910), The New Freedom (1913), On Being Human (1916), President Wilson's Addresses (1917), State of the Union (1918) and Why We Are at War (1918). --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
