Description

Walter Hartright, a young art teacher, meets a mysterious and distressed woman dressed in white. He helps her on her way, but later learns that she has escaped from an asylum. Next day, he travels to Limmeridge House in Cumberland, having been hired as a drawing master on the recommendation of his friend, Pesca, an Italian language master. The Limmeridge household comprises the invalid Frederick Fairlie, and Walter's students: Laura Fairlie, Mr Fairlie's niece, and Marian Halcombe, her devoted half-sister. Walter realises that Laura bears an astonishing resemblance to the woman in white, who is known to the household and whose name is Anne Catherick. The mentally disabled Anne had lived near Limmeridge as a child and was devoted to Laura's mother, who first dressed her in white.

    Impossible to put down. Great story. It is a classic but it should be more famous.

    Wonderfully written book - even though I read it years ago for my O'levels, the second time of reading it never failed to disappoint. Was sorry when I got to the last page.

    I was initially slow to get started with this book, foolishly thinking that Victorian novels weren't really my thing, but was quickly engrossed in the story and characters. I would highly recommend the woman in white to all those who consider books of this age to be dull as this will surely prove you wrong.

    This is not the type of book I would usually choose and only did so after a passing mention of it on the radio and then seeing the title come up in the book store. I found it to be intriguing from the start and the build up towards the climax was done extremely well with several stages along the way. I expected the style of writing to be off putting, but in practice it just added to the attraction of the story. It is long, but all the better for that as you can immerse yourself in this world for longer. Like me you may not be attracted to old fiction, but give this one a go.
  • The tension pulls you in.

    Few Victorian novels have the power and the pace of a "Woman in white". Once the mystery deepens you become breathless with anticipation to find out where it is going and to resolve the puzzle of the count, the baron and of course the woman in white. Ripping!
