"Conventionally our life-story ended in a shower of rice at the church door, amid the scent of white flowers, with a flutter of white favors all about us."
Thus begins "The Red House," Nesbit's charming novel of Chloe and Len, newlyweds adjusting to a new life and a new home. When Len inherits a house in the country from his uncle, Chloe insists they live there, whether the rumors of a ghost be true or not. When mysterious events happen, they are always blamed on the ghost. But the ultimate surprise rests in who that ghost really is. Published in 1902, this novel has a cameo appearance by the Bastable children from other Nesbit classics.
