The Midget’s House is a tale of two women (one alive, and the other long dead), each mourning lost love and struggling for control of the one place that feels like home.
Marisa Delano is thrilled when she unexpectedly inherits the fairy-tale like cottage on the bay—until she learns that Lucinda Lacey, a sideshow midget who died on the property in 1924, still inhabits it. As Marisa searches for answers about the unwelcome presence in her new home, all the clues lead to one conclusion: on the day Lucinda died, she murdered her lover, circus owner Cyrus Parker.
Alternating between Lucinda’s and Marisa’s perspectives, The Midget’s House takes readers from the carnivals, circuses, and freak shows of the early twentieth century, to the boom-and-bust of today’s Florida.
Haunting in every sense of the word, this genre-blending tale will stay with you long after you turn the last page.
