Overview

Frits and Veronica, a young couple in south-eastern Norway, purchases an old house near the walls of Fredriksten Fortress. During restoration work, they discover some intriguing surprises. A hidden passage and a diary from the 1800s. The diary reveals the heartbreaking life of the owner, which also leads them to solve a murder mystery. But there is more. The old house reveals even more shocking and creepy secrets. And there is a treasure! And who is The White Lady …

The White Lady is Tom Thowsen's attempt at breathing new life into two urban legends from his childhood home in Norway: the tales of the White Lady and the secret passage said to exist between Fredriksten Fortress and the town of Halden. The author's depiction of Halden is supported by his personal experience living on Festningsgata in the 80s.

The first edition(2015) of this book was a bestseller in Halden.

About the Author

About Tom Thowsen

If you enjoy books of Wilbur Smith and Ken Follett, you'd likely enjoy Tom Thowsen too. He is a Norwegian illustrator and fiction writer with a passion for history. This passion is also reflected in his books, where he often uses two different time frames, two different stories woven together. One from the present time and the other from the past.

His novels have received very good receptions from both readers and newspapers.
Halden Arbeiderblad said this about Kayaweta, his newest novel: "Thowsen manages to combine facts with fiction and writes excellent novels."

Another newspaper, Demokraten, concluded: "The author sparkles with the joy of storytelling and knowledge."
