The Lady of Capensthwaite Hall

The Lady of Capensthwaite Hall cover

The Lady of Capensthwaite Hall is a short story set in the Lord Peter Wimsey fandom, originally written for the Chocolate Box gift exchange.

The events depicted should be assumed to take place in the May following Harriet and Peter’s wedding the previous October.

Helen, Duchess of Denver is notorious for press-ganging her family into doing favours for her friends and acquaintances and generally rearranging their lives to suit no-one’s convenience but her own. But she’s overdone it this time, turning a simple request to Peter and Harriet to drop off a package of printers’ proofs on their way North to Dumfriesshire into an overnight stay at a remote mansion in the wilds of Westmoreland, their host someone no-one, not even Helen, has met before and whom they only know to be a master of the uncanny tale.
