Publisher's Summary

Art teacher Walter Hartright is on the road to London when he encounters an enigmatic woman dressed entirely in white. She's an unnerving portent of strange things to come as Hartright starts a new job as drawing-master at Limmeridge House. There the teacher falls in love with Laura, his betrothed pupil, who bears a striking resemblance to the woman in white. Soon Walter is drawn into a family intrigue of greed, secrets, madness, and revenge.

Written in the form of testimonies, letters, and diary entries, Wilkie Collins' gothic epistolary novel is regarded as the first "sensation" mystery. More than 150 years later, it continues to keep listeners guessing.

Revised edition: Previously published as The Woman in White, this edition of The Woman in White (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

Slow to start, but very good mystery

This is a long book, and it takes a while for all the elements of the story to come together. However, it is a very good story and interesting mystery. This Audible narration is great; there is a cast of narrators for each of the character's whose voices are represented in the story. Given the time period in which it was written, it is not surprising that the story is full of sexism as well as some racism. However, if you can take those elements for what they are, I would definitely recommend the story.

Great story but some irritating narration...

I really enjoyed the story and everyone’s narration except that of Walter Hartright, and he’s the main character. To me, he sounded like a presenter from a children’s programme (maybe John Noakes), overly enthusiastic, breathy and with a repetitive intonation. I nearly gave up at the beginning as I thought he was narrating the whole novel but fortunately there was respite from some of the other readers.
