The Woman in White

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.

Publisher's Summary

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. Now he is determined to destroy Anne, disguise Laura as Anne and confine her, and obtain all of her money. The only one who can stop him is the courageous Marian Halcombe, Laura's half-sister.

A tremendous success when it was first published in 1860, The Woman in White still enthralls over a century later.

    "A little docile"

    Because this book was written in another time, the women were spineless and the story a little bland. The characters were victims which was a little frustrating. It was an "okay" listen.
