THE MIDGET'S HOUSE by Anita Bartholomew

Book Description:

Marisa Delano is thrilled when she unexpectedly inherits the
fairy-tale like cottage on the Sarasota, Florida bay front. What she
doesn't know is that another woman, Lucinda Lacey, a sideshow midget
who died on the property in 1924, still inhabits it. And Lucinda has
no intention of giving up her home to the new owner.

Switching between the carnivals, circuses, and freak shows of the
early twentieth century, and the boom-and-bust of today's Florida,
Lucinda's life story unfolds as Marisa searches for answers about the
strange presence in her new home. The diminutive Lucinda might not be
as benign as she first seems. Did Lucinda murder her lover on the day
she died? And, if so, is Marisa in danger?

THE MIDGET'S HOUSE was inspired by the author's own house in Sarasota,
Florida, that, if local legend is to be believed, was built for the
little people of the Ringling Bros. Circus, and is haunted to this day
by at least one of them.
