Charlotte Eliza Lawson Cowan was born in Carrickfergus, County Antrim, Ireland, on 30th September 1832, the youngest daughter of James Cowan, a High Sheriff for the County of Antrim, and Ellen Kilshaw from Liverpool, England. In the winter of 1855, four years after her father's death, she and her mother moved to London. Sadly, within the year, her mother also passed. In 1857, she married Joseph Hadley Riddell, a civil engineer. The marriage was happy by all accounts but produced no children. Her first novel, 'The Moors and the Fens', was published in 1858 under the pseudonym of F. G. Trafford, which she used until publishing under the moniker 'Mrs Riddell' from 1864. Charlotte was a prolific, respected and popular author. In her literary career she published over 50 novels and short stories. The most notable is perhaps 'George Geith of Fen Court' (1864), for which she was paid £800. It was later dramatised in 1883 by Wybert Reeve. From 1867, Charlotte ventured into new territory, becoming the co-proprietor and editor of the well-regarded St. James's Magazine, which had begun publishing 1861. She also edited the magazine 'Home in the Sixties', and wrote short stories and tales for the Society for the Promotion of Christian Knowledge and Routledge's Christmas annuals. Charlotte was a prominent writer of ghost stories; 'Fairy Water', 'The Uninhabited House', 'The Haunted River', 'The Disappearance of Mr Jeremiah Redworth' and 'The Nun's Curse', all deal with buildings occupied by supernatural phenomena. Charlotte also wrote several short ghost stories, such as 'The Open Door' and 'Nut Bush Farm', which are regularly anthologised. In 1880 Joseph died. She now withdrew from society and became a recluse. From 1886 this was in Upper Halliford, Middlesex. In 1901 Charlotte became the recipient of the first pension, £60 a year, from the Society of Authors. Charlotte Riddell died from cancer in Ashford, Kent, on 24th September 1906.

In urban studies, the nineteenth century is the "age of great cities." In feminist studies, it is the era of the separate domestic sphere. But what of the city's homes? In the course of answering this question, Apartment Stories provides a singular and radically new framework for understanding the urban and the domestic. Turning to an element of the cityscape that is thoroughly familiar yet frequently overlooked, Sharon Marcus argues that the apartment house embodied the intersections of city and home, public and private, and masculine and feminine spheres. Moving deftly from novels to architectural treatises, legal debates, and popular urban observation, Marcus compares the representation of the apartment house in Paris and London. Along the way, she excavates the urban ghost tales that encoded Londoners' ambivalence about city dwellings; contends that Haussmannization enclosed Paris in a new regime of privacy; and locates a female counterpart to the flâneur and the omniscient realist narrator—the portière who supervised the apartment building.

Welcome to the3 Books To Knowseries, our idea is to help readers learn about fascinating topics through three essential and relevant books. These carefully selected works can be fiction, non-fiction, historical documents or even biographies. We will always select for you three great works to instigate your mind, this time the topic is:Ghost Stories. - 7 Best Short Stories Of Ghost, edited by August Nemo - A Phantom Lover by Vernon Lee - The Uninhabited House by Charlotte RiddellA ghost story may be any piece of fiction, or drama, that includes a ghost, or simply takes as a premise the possibility of ghosts or characters' belief in them.The "ghost" may appear of its own accord or be summoned by magic. Linked to the ghost is the idea of "hauntings", where a supernatural entity is tied to a place, object or person. In 7 Best Short Stories of Ghost the critic August Nemo selected seven tales that perfectly illustrate this concept. A Phantom Lover has been compared to The Turn of the Screw by Henry James, in that there is a question about whether the ghost of the story was merely a figment of the imagination of two of the characters. In An Uninhabited House, the hauntings are seen through the perspective of the solicitors who hold the deed of the property. Slowly the safer world of commerce and law gives way as the encounter with the supernatural entity becomes more and more unavoidable. This is one of many books in the series 3 Books To Know. If you liked this book, look for the other titles in the series, we are sure you will like some of the topic.
