Novels have long had houses at their core. Often, the house is a kind of symbol of the marriage: a happy ending means getting the beloved and the estate. In these four books from the early-to mid-twentieth century, we read novels with houses at their heart. These houses are more than mere setting or final prize; they rise to the status of a character.
