Late one moonlit night, Walter Hartright encounters a solitary and terrified woman dressed all in white. He saves her from capture by her pursuers and determines to solve the mystery of her distress and terror. Inspired by an actual criminal case, this gripping tale of murder, intrigue, madness and mistaken identity has never been out of print since its publication and brought Collins great fame and success.

I was looking for a cheap audio book to pass some long hours in the car. This classic sufficed for the most part. This is an intriguing story that will challenge your vocabulary and grab your interest here and there (every 5 hours or so). The narration is on point and the story is engaging but incredibly slow. I'm sure I'm not doing this historic novel justice, but I really just wanted something to keep me awake, not a sojourn into classical literature. This did the job, but barely.
