Read full description of the books:
Walter Hartright se traslada a Limmeridge para dar clases de dibujo a Laura, una joven rica heredera sobrina del barón Frederick Fairlie. Poco antes de irse, tropieza con una misteriosa dama vestida de blanco que le habla de Limmeridge y de su propietaria fallecida, la señora Fairlie.
Desde el principio Walter siente una gran atracción por Laura, quien está prometida con sir Percival Glyde, que solo busca arrebatarle su herencia. Solo se interpone en su camino la misteriosa dama de blanco.
La dama de blanco, inspirada en un hecho real y publicada originalmente por entregas en una revista dirigida por Charles Dickens, ha constituido un éxito ininterrumpido de ventas en todas las lenguas. Todo ello se debe a una trama argumental magníficamente desarrollada, que envuelve al lector en una atmósfera de misterio e intriga; al increible ritmo narrativo que va imponiendo el autor conforme avanza la historia, y sobre todo a la profundidad psicológica de los personajes y a la gran capacidad descripiva de ambientes ysituaciones.
Junto con La piedra lunar ha sido considerada, tanto por el público como por la crítica, una de las mejores novelas de misterio e intriga de todos los tiempos.

Read information about the authorA close friend of Charles Dickens from their meeting in March 1851 until Dickens' death in June 1870, William Wilkie Collins was one of the best known, best loved, and, for a time, best paid of Victorian fiction writers. But after his death, his reputation declined as Dickens' bloomed.
Now, Collins is being given more critical and popular attention than he has received for 50 years. Most of his books are in print, and all are now in e-text. He is studied widely; new film, television, and radio versions of some of his books have been made; and all of his letters have been published. However, there is still much to be discovered about this superstar of Victorian fiction.
Born in Marylebone, London in 1824, Collins' family enrolled him at the Maida Hill Academy in 1835, but then took him to France and Italy with them between 1836 and 1838. Returning to England, Collins attended Cole's boarding school, and completed his education in 1841, after which he was apprenticed to the tea merchants Antrobus & Co. in the Strand.
In 1846, Collins became a law student at Lincoln's Inn, and was called to the bar in 1851, although he never practised. It was in 1848, a year after the death of his father, that he published his first book, 'The Memoirs of the Life of William Collins, Esq., R.A'., to good reviews.
The 1860s saw Collins' creative high-point, and it was during this decade that he achieved fame and critical acclaim, with his four major novels, 'The Woman in White' (1860), 'No Name' (1862), 'Armadale' (1866) and 'The Moonstone' (1868). 'The Moonstone', is seen by many as the first true detective novel T. S. Eliot called it "the first, the longest, and the best of modern English detective novels ..." in a genre invented by Collins and not by Poe.
