The House of a Thousand Candles

The House of a Thousand Candles by Meredith Nicholson

The House of a Thousand Candles by Meredith Nicholson

The House of a Thousand Candles is part adventure/mystery and part romance. The book begins with young Jack Glenarm returning from various exploits in Europe and Africa for the reading of his grandfather’s will. In it, he stands to inherit his grandfather’s estate, but only if he can remain for one year in residence at the old man’s unfinished “House of a Thousand Candles” in Annandale, Indiana, with only his grandfather’s mysterious valet for company. If he violates the terms of the will, the house will go to a young woman, heretofore unknown to him, whom the will also forbids Jack to marry if he wants to retain his inheritance. This all sounds very mundane to Jack and he fully expects to be quite bored in very short order. Soon after Jack’s arrival at Glenarm House, however, various strange occurrences ensue, and he soon finds himself absorbed in the most lively adventure of his life!

The Passionate Friends

The Passionate Friends by H. G. Wells

The Passionate Friends by H. G. Wells

The Passionate Friends is a love story. It also is a story about dreams, despair, jealousy, sex, the struggle against social convention, the future of civilization, and much much more. It is written by a father to his son, “not indeed to the child you are now, but to the man you are going to be.” He writes it so that one day, perhaps when he is dead, his grown son can read it and rediscover him as a friend and equal. In the process, he tries to make sense of a lifetime’s experiences and distill some kind of wisdom from them. It is quite simply a beautiful book, both inspiring and heartbreaking.

Lady Anna

Lady Anna by Anthony Trollope

Lady Anna by Anthony Trollope

This tightly constructed and passionate study of enforced marriage in the world of Radical politics and social inequality, records the lifelong attempt of Countess Lovel to justify her claim to her title, and her daughter Anna’s legitimacy, after her husband announces that he already has a wife. However, mother and daughter are driven apart when Anna defies her mother’s wish that she marry her cousin, heir to her father’s title, and falls in love with journeyman tailor and young Radical Daniel Thwaite. The outcome is never in doubt, but Trollope’s ambivalence on the question is profound, and the novel both intense and powerful.
