"A reputedly wealthy and eccentric old man dies in Vermont. His home [in Indiana], the House of a Thousand Candles, so called for the owner's preference to candle light, is left empty save a faithful servant -- his fortune mysteriously vanished, though rumored to still have been hidden in the house somewhere. John Glenarm, the late old man's grandson, stands to inherit the estate (and so the secret fortune) under the stipulation that he live in the house for one year. If he fails, the house will be forfeited and awarded to Marian Devereaux, the niece of the nun who operates the nearby Saint Agatha's School for girls. Mister Pickering, the executor of the estate and childhood rival of John's, decides to find the hidden treasure before young Glenarm does"--LibriVox online

7 editions published between 1909 and 2007 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The gripping novel Tess of the Storm Country was a very popular bestseller that inspired no fewer than four film versions. The story centers on Tess Skinner, a beautiful but impoverished young woman from the wrong side of the tracks. The book offers a gritty look at poverty and social mores in turn-of-the-twentieth-century America, but this note of realism is nicely balanced out by the against-all-odds romance that blossoms between Tess and the man of her dreams
