The Woman in White is a mystery novel written by Wilkie Collins and first published in 1859. It is one of the outstanding works of the sensational novel, very popular in the 19th century. It was a great success since its publication and gave the author great fame.

Laura Fairlie is a beautiful and wealthy woman who is married to a fortune hunter, Sir Percival. Sir Percival recreates Laura's death to try to keep all her money. Marian, Laura's half-sister, and her drawing teacher Walter Hartright will try to prevent this from happening at all costs and that Laura doesn't lose her money. To do this, Walter Hartright becomes a master detective.

The story maintains tension throughout and masterfully blends a diverse set of characters. In addition, it has a critical component with the restrictions on women in the Victorian era and the class system.
