WOMAN IN WHITE, THE


  • Woman in White New



Genre: Thriller

Author: Boyce, Nicola & Collins, Wilkie

On a moonlit road in Hampstead, Walter Hartright is accosted by a woman dressed from head to toe in white. She asks the way to London and no sooner has Walter directed her than he is overtaken by a carriage in pursuit of the mysterious woman, who has evidently escaped from an asylum. From this single incident, Walter unwinds a thrilling story of abduction, madness, false identity and shameful family secrets. Pursuing questions of identity and insanity along the paths and corridors of English country houses and asylums for the insane, Nicola Boyce’s adaptation of The Woman in White captures both the Gothic horror and psychological realism of one of the most popular detective stories ever written.
