American novelist born in St. Louis, graduated from Annapolis, and mainly lived in New Hampshire during his career. He is chiefly noted for his successful historical romances. Although his first novel The Celebrity (1898) was moderately popular, it was with his second Richard Carvel that he gained much fame. Churchill was interested in social issues and religion and his later works reflect these concerns. His other novels include: The Crisis (1901), The Crossing (1904), Coniston (1906), A Far Country (1915), The Inside of the Cup (1913), A Far Country (1915), The Dwelling Place of Light (1917).Présentation de l'éditeur :
