Overview
-

A strange figure stood in front of him, dressed from head to foot in white clothing. The moonlight showed her pale, youthful face. When Walter Hartright meets the woman in white, it is the start of an exciting and dangerous adventure. Who is she, and what does she want? At first Walter is happy at Limmeridge House, teaching painting and drawing to Laura Fairlie and Marian Halcombe, but a wicked plot soon threatens to destroy the woman he loves. Will their courage and determination be enough to defeat the powerful forces ranged against them? Is the mysterious woman in white their friend, or their enemy?

Each book is a retelling of a work of great literature from one of the world’s greatest cultures, fitted into a 64-page book, making classic stories, dramas and histories available to intelligent young readers as a bridge to the full texts, to language students wanting access to other cultures, and to adult readers who are unlikely ever to read the original versions.
