Sort order. Mar 18, Nancy Oakes added it Shelves: ghostly-tales. While I wouldn't classify this novella as great, it is quite entertaining, but most importantly, it led me to the work of Victorian writer Charlotte Riddell. To be very frank, The Uninhabited House is a story you don't read in hopes of being scared out of your wits The "uninhabited house" of the title is River Hall, the property of Miss Helena Elmsdale While I wouldn't classify this novella as great, it is quite entertaining, but most importantly, it led me to the work of Victorian writer Charlotte Riddell. The "uninhabited house" of the title is River Hall, the property of Miss Helena Elmsdale who inherited the property after the death of her father.
Miss Elmsdale has not yet reached her majority however, so the business of keeping the house rented falls to her aunt Miss Susannah Blake who puts it in the hands of her attorneys, Messrs. Craven and Son. She is not the easiest of clients, but the lawyers do their very best to keep it rented for her so that some money comes to her in her situation. Unfortunately for everyone concerned, the house has a history of tenants who are only too eager to leave shortly after taking the place.
After one tenant decides he's had enough, Mr.
Craven realizes that the house that is doomed by reputation to never again see a tenant grace its threshold. With Miss Blake demanding that something be done, one man takes it upon himself to stay in the house so he can discover the secrets that plague River Hall. This is a story in which Ms. Riddell's art reflected parts of her own life -- after her father died and left the family in financial straits, Charlotte and her mother relocated to London where Charlotte took up writing as a way to help support herself.
Her skills came in handy after her marriage when her husband also suffered some financial setbacks. It seems to me that in many ways, one of the points of this story is that it isn't money that brings happiness -- in fact, it is just the opposite in some situations. Combined with the supernatural elements of this story, it definitely should have made for interesting and edifying reading at the time.

I will say that for a while I wasn't quite sure how this tale was going to play out, since it reads like a mystery novel in some parts. Riddell, published by Leonaur. I will be reading an ebook version; however, I love this cover - beautiful old house set in a dark, gloomy light. Book links: Manybooks. We shall see What a great find this has been for me. I am giving this 5 stars because of the enjoyment this short story gave to me.

Ever since her moneylender father committed suicide years ago, Helena and her wildly eccentric spinster aunt, Miss Bell, have lived largely off the proceeds of renting out the house he left them. The trouble -- as Miss Bell's solicitor, Mr. Craven, in charge of the lettings, knows all too well -- is that it's hard to find a tenant who'll live there the full period of the lease. The place appears to be haunted by the ghost of the old skinflint. Craven's clerk and our narrator , Harry Patterso Ever since her moneylender father committed suicide years ago, Helena and her wildly eccentric spinster aunt, Miss Bell, have lived largely off the proceeds of renting out the house he left them.
Craven's clerk and our narrator , Harry Patterson, who has not uncoincidentally fallen in love with Helena, agrees to live in the house for a few months to see if he can get to the root of the problem. What follows is part ghost story, part murder mystery. As a ghost story it's not terribly frightening and as a murder mystery it contains few surprises, but the whole is entertaining enough nonetheless.
It took me a little while to get into Charlotte Riddell's writing style -- for the first chapter or more, there seemed as many commas in each sentence as in a tank of tadpoles, and to roughly similar for me visual effect -- but after a while either I became inured to them or Riddell's typesetter went on strike. Whatever the case, once I'd cleared that hurdle I found myself reading along happily.
