The Woman in White

As mentioned before, I love listening to books.  When I walk my dog in the wee hours of the moring, an audio book makes a great companion.  I am still taking advantage of the books I was able to download from this past summer.  My current facination is with The Woman in White, by Wilkie Collins.  Such a disturbing and fantastic book about the injustices of women in the 1800's, done in a multi-narrative depiction of a marriage-for-money gone wrong. SYNC paired The Woman in White with the modern ghost story, Anna Dressed in Blood, by Kendare Blake, so I have reason to believe that the connection is significant.  Since I am reading Anna Dressed in Blood concurrently with the audio selection, I cannot wait to see where they both lead me. 
The characters in The Woman in White are so believable and Collins' description of them so vivid, you will love Marian, and love to hate Count Fosco and Sir Percival Glyde.  A love story, a mystery, a thriller; this book has it all!  So much danger and intrigue has me waking each early morning with ease, as I look forward to putting in those earphones and putting on my walking shoes.  Whether it's the audiobook, the print, or the digital vesion, you will find yourself wrapped up in the mystery of Lady Glyde's life.
