Recent Popular Fiction with the Word "House" in the Title

OH, the auld house, the auld house!
  What tho' the rooms were wee?
Oh, kind hearts were dwelling there,
  And bairnies fu’ o’ glee!
The wild rose and the jessamine      
  Still hang upon the wa’:
How mony cherished memories
  Do they, sweet flowers, reca’!

From "The Auld House" by Carolina Oliphant (1766–1845)
