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.

Read information about the authorAnita Bartholomew is a former long-time contributing editor to Reader’s Digest whose articles have also appeared in numerous other major periodicals. She is the the author of the novel, The Midget's House,co-author of Dr. Yvonne Thornton’s award-winning memoir, Something To Prove (Kaplan 2010), and has acted as an editorial consultant to a great many other authors, including some whose books have made the bestseller lists.
When Anita bought her home in Sarasota, Florida, neighbors repeated all sorts of legends to her about it: That it was built for Ringling Circus midgets... that there is a treasure hidden inside its walls... that it is haunted.
Anita searched newspaper archives and rare old books for clues to the house’s origins. She questioned historians, circus experts and local circus people. All information about the charming, storybook-style house in the Indian Beach neighborhood of Sarasota was long since gone. But Anita Bartholomew's imaginings about what its history might have been form the basis of her novel, The Midget's House.
