Home Wilkie Collins The Woman in White. The woman in white, . I determined to stroll home in the purer air by the mostroundabout way I could take; to follow the white winding paths acrossthe lonely heath; and to approach London through its most open suburbby striking into the Finchley Road, and so getting back, in the cool ofthe new morning, by the western side of the Regent's Park.

The note he gave me said that a qualified drawing teacher was wanted by Mr Frederick Fairlie of Limmeridge House, Cumberland, to teach his two young nieces for a period of at least four months.

The Woman in White is Wilkie Collins's fifth published novel, written in 1859. It is considered to be among the first mystery novels and is widely regarded as one of the first (and finest) in the genre of "sensation novels". The story is sometimes considered an early example of detective fiction with protagonist Walter Hartright employing many of the sleuthing techniques of later private detectives.

Walter is all the more unnerved by this, as he was told that the house that he is going to is called Limmeridge, but he brushes it off as a coincidence. Walter puts the woman in a carriage. A few moments later he overhears some men telling a policeman that a woman in white has escaped from the local mental asylum. Walter is unnerved once again by the woman, and unsure if he did the right thing by helping her.
