The Haunted Woman is a fantasy novel by British writer David Lindsay, first published in 1922. The book tells the story of Isabel Loment, who is betrothed to the unremarkable Marshall Stokes, and who lives a nomadic life under the guardianship of her aunt, Ann Moor. Their travels lead them to the picturesque landscapes of Sussex, where they find themselves at Runhill Court, a centuries-old estate owned by Henry Judge. Within the walls of the ancient house, Isabel stumbles upon a peculiar staircase that remains invisible to most, revealing three enigmatic doors. Intrigued, she selects one of the doors, and it grants access to a room that seems to exist intermittently; the secrets behind the other doors remain shrouded in mystery. In this mysterious room, Isabel encounters Judge once more, and together they experience a profound transformation, gaining fresh perspectives and discovering novel ways of self-expression. Strangely, upon leaving the room, both are unable to recall the details of their encounters. As time passes, a disconcerting parallel relationship develops between them leading to a fateful climax.
