Blithewold is a spectacular 33-acre estate on the shores of Narragansett Bay in Bristol, Rhode Island, known as New England’s finest sea-side garden estate.

grand tour frontIn June 1903, 19-year-old Marjorie Van Wickle embarked on a journey that profoundly changed the course of her life, leading to life-long passions for art, music, and horticulture. For eleven months, she traveled with a chaperone through Europe and Egypt, touring capital cities, small towns, and villages; visiting art museums, historic sites, and legendary monuments. The book is constructed around excerpts from letters and postcards Marjorie sent home to her mother.
