The House is the tale of a woman, who is so absorbed with historical novels   that her own reality ceases to offer any hope of romance and beauty.

One day this dreamy idealist finds herself in a mysterious forest. How she arrived there is unknown. She encounters a ramshackle house, wherein magical rooms that transport to parallel worlds lay in wait.  She is transported to historical England, where she interacts with a collection of character’s whose dysfunctional lives become apparent immediately.

The first tribulation involves a nefarious lord, an archetypal embodiment of the monstrous creatures that often haunt fairy tales. The ramification of this confrontation sets the tone for the narrative.

Before long, the folly of disdaining her mundane reality is realized, and she desires desperately to return to her former predictable life.

A hidden portal finally enables escape from the austere Georgian dwelling. She is spirited back to the enigmatic house, where a journey to Regency London ensues. A large cast of eccentric identities present themselves.

One day a handsome, despondent poet arrives, following a period in Florence. His introduction to the time traveler offers promise of restoration and love. But upon the face of it, and much to his chagrin, this union cannot be consummated. There are a few more obstacles ahead before her destiny in this strange adventure is made apparent. In the end a past life connection starts to reveal itself.  And like all good fairy tales, the ending is pleasing, even though the means of getting there are dark and at times, sinister.

About the Author:

Sebastiana Randone lives in Melbourne, Australia, and is from a dance background.
From an early age, Sebastiana developed a passion for reading, and from that moment has never been without a book.
The desire to write ‘one day’ had been pursuing for a long while. Finally that goal was realized with the debut release of “The House”; an adult fairy tale set in the Regency era.
Sebastiana is presently writing her second book; a paranormal romance novel based in New York late 1980’s.

I loved the Structure of this novel. It had a good story line with well developed characters. The only thing that I struggled with was the speech, or should I say writing style.
Sebastiana is really good when it come to use highly English words, She has the gift to write History novels, she could be a second Jane Austen, that type of writer. The only problem is, I’m not a fan of those type of novels because of their writing styles. It’s a type of style that makes it hard for me to understand what they are talking about most of the times. It was the only thing that I struggled to connect with.
The jumping through different times were done really good. I were never lost or didn’t know where I was. I loved how every person she met actually fitted into her life. I think people that loves history novels, time traveling. with a dash of romance, will love The House.
The only category that I didn’t feel was the Fairy tale. I didn’t experience any Fairy tale of this book.
I rate the house a four. I liked it.
Good luck with The House Sebastiana.
