The house (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:36PM
Description: The House is an adult fairy tale rich in mystery and intrigue. Here is a tale of a woman so absorbed with historical novels that her own reality ceases to offer any hope of romance and beauty. Until one day this dreamy idealist finds herself in a mysterious forest. How she arrived there is unknown. Soon she encounters a dilapidated house, within whose ancient walls magical rooms that transport to parallel worlds lie in wait. There she is transmigrated to 18th century England, where our heroine interacts with a mix of characters whose dysfunctional lives become immediately apparent. Her first tribulation involves a nefarious lord, an archetype of the monstrous characters one encounters in fairy tales. The ramification from this confrontation sets the tone for the narrative. A magic portal finally enables escape from the austere Georgian dwelling. She is then spirited back to the enigmatic house and a journey to Regency London follows where a large cast of eccentric identities present themselves. Late one night, following a long stay in Florence, a young, heart-broken poet arrives. His introduction to the beautiful time traveller offers promise of restoration and love. But there are several more obstacles ahead before her destiny in this strange adventure is made apparent. In the end an unexpected twist is revealed. But like all good fairy tales, this surprising conclusion is pleasing, even though the means of getting there are dark, and at times sinister.
