Where to Find Fortune

An aim in life is the only fortune worth finding; and it is not to be found in foreign lands, but in the heart itself.

Randolph and Jennie

- Another installment in my series

Stories of the world during the time Winston Churchill lived in it: 1874 to 1965.

The families much disapproved of Winston’s parent’s marriage. Randolph was the son of the Duke of Marlborough. Jennie was the daughter of a New York investor. However, Randolph and Jennie found the perfect move to force their hand and they were married in Paris on April 15, 1874. The Marlboroughs were not there. Seven months later, Winston Churchill was born.

This series consists of short summaries for passages from the book that I am writing. Graphic is that of another Churchill book that I really like.

Other Installments of this series (in progress).
