I have another hardcover copy of this. I found this one at a thrift store for release.

The Woman in White
Author: Wilkie Collins

A scheming nobleman, a beautiful heiress, and, of course, a mysterious woman in white confined to an asylum for the insane are just a few of the unforgettable characters in this marvelous tale of mistaken identities, locked rooms, and surprise revelations. Widely regarded as the finest work of Wilkie Collins.

"The Woman in White" is one of the most engaging and gripping Victorian novels I have read. Collins creates vivid, memorable characters (ranging from brave intelligent Marian to the surprising and sinister Count Fosco) who are engaged in a plot that twists and turns. Collins moves between them with graceful and beautiful prose. Not only that, his narrative style, which moves from character to character, allows for fantastic comic interludes which break up the drama.

A mysterious woman-in-white encournters Walter Hartright, a young drawing master on his way to a new commission in the country. From then on, it seems that their fate and lives are tangled together, this woman-in-white, and Walter and his pupils Marian Halcombe and Laura Fairlie. Laura's impending marriage to Sir Percival Glyde draws a gloomy end. From then on, the pace quickens as the woman-in-white first sends a letter of warning to Laura.

Laura becomes the victim, Walter the absent hero, and it is all up to Marian, the lion-hearted defender of her sister, who stands as protector, investigator, and emotional supporter to Laura, that is until tragic circumstances force their separation.

Everything is explained at the end, except for the reason that Laura's late father wanted her to marry Percival Glyde in the first place.

I am so glad that I have read this book. Placing in my ABC VBB.
