The Woman in White Summary

The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins

Walter Hartright's chance midnight encounter with a mysterious woman in white is to change his life. When he takes up his duties as drawing teacher to the beautiful Laura Fairlie, he sees in her face an eerie reflection of the forlorn creature he met on the London road. What is the secret that connects the woman in white with Laura and her fiance, the sinister Sir Percival Glyde? And is Sir Percival's charming acquaintance Count Fosco, with his taste for white mice, vanilla bonbons and poison, friend or foe?

About Wilkie Collins

Wilkie Collins (1824-89) was one of the most popular novelists of his day; in 65 years he wrote 25 novels, more than 50 short stories, at least 15 plays, and more than 100 non-fiction pieces. A close friend of Charles Dickens from their meeting in March 1851 until Dickens' death in 1870, Collins was one of the best known, best loved, and, for a time, best paid of Vistorian fiction writers. Exploring the realms of mystery, suspense and crime, he is often regarded as the inventor of the detective story.
