Ruth Thorne arrives in a small unnamed seaside village where she is to spend an extended vacation resting (as required by her editor and doctor for her health) and house-sitting for her aunt, who is traveling abroad. When Ruth arrives she is met with one mystery after another. First, after years of near solitude and no traveling what has made her spinster aunt pack up and travel all the way around the world? Then there's the instructions left by her aunt that insist Ruth must place an oil lamp in the attic window each evening until dawn.

Rose is a many faceted woman with a truly honorable heart, her cousin Isabel is a selfish young creature whose beauty draws even the noble. Their friend Allison is a gifted young violinist who has captured life in his instrument. And of course Aunt Francesca- the mainstay of her adopted family, rises to meet every occasion with delicacy, wisdom and a dainty pair of shoes. To counter the intense emotion of this delightful tale are the endearing, albeit eccentric, Crosby twins with their inherited fortune and wild imaginations!

At the sign of the Jack o' Lantern by Myrtle Reed( )

This novel begins with an odd inheritance at the end of a honeymoon, both parties being inexperienced. Then someone comes to visit, then another, until we've got a chaotic bedlam of New England's tragically off the wall odd-ball relations. Our protagonists may not communicate efficiently at first but at least they've got a sense of humours. The humourous style keeps up as well as some moments of lustre and rich feeling about the printed word itself. [Elib]
