5.0 out of 5 stars A classic page turner, 12 April 2010
This review is from: The Woman in White (Oxford World's Classics) (Paperback)
This mystery story is filled with intrigue, curious happenings, and a wonderful cast of characters. It all begins when Walter Hartwright, a young art teacher, who on walking across Hampstead Health in the dead of night happens across a lone young woman dressed all in white. And from here the mystery begins ...

The numerous twists and turns and the engaging and memorable characters kept me turning the pages of this very charming and intriguing tale. The story unfolds as various characters recount portions of the story and this is threaded through with journal entries, letters and witness statements, the combination of which makes the reader feel like they are piecing together the mystery along with the characters.

With love, betrayal, romance, friendship, villains, asylums, secrets and lies, the story is very engaging and well paced, and with each chapter the mystery both deepens and unfolds. I was hooked right until the end.

It is beautifully written, and very much invoked the period it is set in, from the descriptions, to the society to the reactions and constraints of the female characters.

I would recommend this to anyone.
