    When Walter Hartright encounters the "solitary figure of a woman, dressed from head to foot in white garments" on a lonely road, he is haunted by her. He falls in love with his employer's niece, Laura, because she resembles the mysterious woman. Laura, however, is betrothed to the evil Sir Percival, who wishes to marry her for her money. The woman in white, it turns out, is Anne Catherick, who was confined in an asylum by the evil Sir Percival because she knew a devastating secret about him.

    Overall

    As a fan of historical novels (e.g., The Winthrop Woman) that provide believable heroines it's difficult to believe that I had not read this one. The suspense, the quality of writing and knowing that this book was written so very long ago all blended together to provide a book that was difficult to put down. The narrators of this particular recording contributed to it's pleasure by instilling a sense of listening in on the past that was thoroughly enjoyable!

    All children mythologize their birth... So begins the prologue of reclusive author Vida Winter's beloved collection of stories, long famous for the mystery of the missing thirteenth tale. The enigmatic Winter has always kept her violent and tragic past a secret. Now old and ailing, she summons a biographer to tell the truth about her extraordinary life: Margaret Lea, a young woman for whom the secret of her own birth remains an ever-present pain.

    PA Law says: "Haunting and beautiful tale"
    "Twice in a row"
    Overall

    This book was so well written that, after finishing the first read I started all over to listen again so that I could hear it from a different perspective! I had thought of doing this with other books, but then gave up early on as it didn't feel like there was any mystery left to discover. Not so with The Thirteenth Tale. It was as difficult to put down the second time as it was the first.
