Our story beings with Walter Hartright helpfully telling us that he's about to tell us a story. Glad he gave us that head's up.

Walter actually gathered a lot of testimony and letters from people to tell us a dramatic and totally true story. Cue the Law and Order theme song.

So Walter is an art teacher who lands a gig teaching two sisters how to draw. Before heading out to the sisters' house, he meets a mysterious woman dressed entirely in white who has just escaped from a lunatic asylum. Walter heads to Limmeridge House, where he promptly becomes BFFs with the older sister, Marian, and falls in love with the younger sister, Laura.

Marian and Walter investigate the woman in white, who is named Anne Catherick and who bears a weird resemblance to Laura. But then Walter has to leave because of his love for Laura, who is already engaged to a dude named Sir Percival Glyde. Walter peaces out and Sir Percival arrives on the scene and woos his Laura some more for good measure.

The letter tells Laura to stay away from Sir Percival—he's a creep. Sir Percival also makes some shifty legal demands regarding Laura's inheritance, which the family lawyer doesn't like. Laura hems and haws about everything but finally decides to marry Sir Percival anyway, since she promised her dad she would.

Marian is less than pleased with the situation. Flash-forward to after the wedding. Laura and Sir Percival return from their honeymoon, and Marian comes to live with them at Sir Percival's mansion, Blackwater Park sounds cheery. Things go from bad to worse for the sisters as they are forced to square off against the greedy and crafty Fosco and Percival, both of whom are out for Laura's money.

After a tense few weeks, Marian falls dangerously ill after spying on Fosco and Percival in the rain. Should've brought that umbrella, Marian. The two men conspire to get Laura out of the house.

Except not. See, Fosco swapped Anne and Laura. In reality it was Anne who died, and Laura was shipped off to Anne's former asylum. But Marian figures out what's what and busts her sister out of the loony bin.

The two team up with Walter, who is back from a stint in South America, and go on a crusade to get justice for Laura, who is still presumed dead. After lots of investigating, Walter learns Sir Percival's big secret: he's an illegitimate child and not the rightful heir to his estate or title. Before Walter can let the world know about this, Sir Percival dies in a fire while trying to stop Walter from investigating things further.

One villain down, one to go. Fosco seems indestructible, but then Walter learns some shady things about his past from his Italian buddy, Pesca. Turns out Fosco is on the lam from a political organization that he screwed over once upon a time. Walter confronts Fosco and gets a detailed written confession from him about everything he and his crony Percival did to Laura and Marian. Fosco runs off, but his former political society finally catches up with him and kills him in Paris.

Meanwhile, Walter and Laura have married and eventually they have a son. Laura's identity is restored, but her money is long gone. Anne Catherick gets a proper burial under her own name. Walter, Laura, baby Walter, and Marian move into Limmeridge house after Laura's uncle dies, and they all live happily ever after. Study Guide. The Woman in White Summary Our story beings with Walter Hartright helpfully telling us that he's about to tell us a story. Given the size of this book, it's going to be a rather long story, so make yourselves comfortable.

Walter would like you all to know that his story is very factual and truthful. Time for some exposition and scene-setting, kids. It's July, and Walter is a bit bummed about his financial situation. Work hasn't been plentiful, and cash is tight. He's heading to dinner with his family, which consists of his sister Sarah and his mother. Walter's father, who was also an art teacher, is dead. Walter also fills us in on his odd friend, Pesca, who is at the Hartright house for dinner.

Pesca is an Italian language professor who is super short and super high-spirited. Walter saved Pesca from drowning during a beach vacay, and ever since, Pesca has been nearly obsessed with doing Walter a solid to say thanks.

Pesca is in higher spirits than usual, which irks Walter's sister Sarah. She's kind of uptight. Walter's mom finds Pesca hilarious. Pesca starts to tell a rambling but funny story. The gist of said story is that Pesca has heard about a sweet job for Walter in Cumberland, a county northwest of London.

The job is working for a Mr. Frederick Fairlie, of Limmeridge House, who wants to hire a drawing teacher for two young women for a period of four months. Pesca is thrilled that he can finally do something useful for Walter. But Walter has a bad feeling about everything and nearly refuses the job. His family and Pesca protest, and Walter finally caves. But he can't shake the odd feeling he has about everything. Later that night Walter walks home from his mom's house.

A strange woman dressed all in white suddenly appears and asks Walter the way to London. Walter is freaked out by her sudden appearance. The woman acts really weird, too. No one else is around, so Walter reluctantly escorts the weird lady the few miles to London. The woman rambles on about stuff that makes little to no sense. She makes some references to a mysterious baronet she's afraid of, and to Limmeridge. Weird coincidence. Except not, because Collins went to the Dickens school of novel writing, where coincidences are actually the norm.

Walter finally gets the lady to a carriage and she takes off. A few minutes later, some guys rush up and waylay a cop. They tell him a crazy lady dressed in white has just escaped from an asylum.

Walter freaks out after hearing that the lady he just helped has escaped from an asylum. He goes home and worries about everything. The lady seemed odd, but also nice and harmless.

Walter can't decide if he did the right thing or not by helping her. He finally falls into a fitful sleep. Walter makes the journey to Limmeridge House and arrives in the afternoon. He first meets a young lady with dark hair who looks pretty hot. Walter thinks her face doesn't match her body though—ouch. The woman is Marian Halcombe, one of the young ladies Walter is supposed to teach drawing. Marian is wicked smart and quick-witted and proceeds to gives Walter a very entertaining account of life at Limmeridge House.

Walter has been hired by Frederick Fairlie, an invalid, to teach Marian and her half-sister Laura drawing. Laura is Frederick's niece and has the same mother as Marian, her older sister. Both Marian and Laura have since lost their parents, and the two sisters live together at Limmeridge with only Mrs.

Vesey, Laura's old governess, for company. The two sisters are polar opposites. Laura is fair, feminine, and rich; Marian is dark, bold, and poor. Walter decides he likes Marian a lot and the two become friends. He also fills Marian in on his encounter with the woman in white, since the woman mentioned Limmeridge. Marian finds it all super-bizarre and decides to investigate the matter. Walter goes upstairs to meet his employer, Fredrick Fairlie.

Fairlie is possibly the most ridiculous human being alive. We'll let Walter sum up his character: "Mr. Fairlie's selfish affectation and Mr. Fairlie's wretched nerves meant one and the same thing" 1. Basically, Mr. Fairlie is a spoiled, stuck-up hypochondriac who likes making everyone around him jump through hoops.
