Summary
Enter the Victorian haunted house: a world of glowering shadows, heart-stopping visions and phantom footfall by night. But whilst spirits disturb the realm of the living, the stark realities of surviving in Victorian England remain equally pressing. From the once-beloved yet unfairly neglected Victorian writer Charlotte Riddell come two chilling yet charming novels. In "An Uninhabited House," Charlotte Riddell presents a curious proposition: how does one let a property when the tenents cannot stand their otherworldly lodger? Horror meets humour as a host of solicitors and clerks struggle to find the solution to their impending financial - and perhaps mortal - peril. "Fairy Water" follows young lovers navigating their new position in society, an effort frustrated by the interruptions of a spectral houseguest. Narrated by the couple's bombastic and disgruntled landlord, the economic obsessions and anxieties of late Victorian England are expertly, and entertainingly, laid bare
