Mrs. Dodge and the House Painter: A True Story of Death in New England
by George Garrigues
There is chaos in the widow's house, and neighbors are tromping in and out, and there are police, doctors, the local Congregational minister and his wife, and an open bottle of brandy. Nothing is ever the same for the widow from that day on. The painter is dead, shot through the heart. Told in an artful and creative way through the actual reporting from newspapers of the era. Fully illustrated.
