Only one? Much too hard. How about three, spread across the last century?

Kim, by Rudyard Kipling. Available in a nice edition I put together, here on Mobileread. First published in 1901.

Mr. Midshipman Hornblower by C. S. Forester. Unfortunately not yet available as an ebook. First published in 1950.

The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith. First published in 1998.
