Review: The House Of A Thousand Candles

User Review  - Claire - Goodreads

Stellar mystery, of the kind without the guts and gore but will still give you goosebumps. The tone is light and easy to read, and the characters are nuanced enough to give the story some texture. Read full review

About the author (1986)

Meredith Nicholson (1866-1947) was a best-selling author from Indiana, United States, a politician, and a diplomat. Nicholson was born on December 9, 1866 in Crawfordsville, Indiana, to Edward Willis Nicholson and the former Emily Meredith. Largely self-taught, Nicholson began a newspaper career in 1884 at the Indianapolis Sentinel. He moved to the Indianapolis News the following year, where he remained until 1897. He wrote Short Flights in 1891, and continued to publish extensively, both poetry and prose until 1928. During the first quarter of the 20th century, Nicholson, along with Booth Tarkington, George Ade, and James Whitcomb Riley helped to create a Golden Age of literature in Indiana. Three of his books from that era were national bestsellers: The House of a Thousand Candle, The Port of Missing Men, and A Hoosier Chronicle.
