E-BOOK: The Dark House by I.A.R. Wylie

I found The Dark House on my favourite e-book site earlier this week, and have been zipping through it ever since. It's a somewhat gloomy but well-written coming-of-age story about an orphan-type trying to make his way in the world, and while this may be ground that has been trod upon before, this obscure addition to the genre makes for a quick and satisfying read. I have not been able to dig up too much information on its author, Ida Alexa Ross Wylie, other than that she was Australian and worked as a journalist. This seems to be one of those 'obscure works rescued from the dust-piles of history by the internet' type of books :)
