The Wheel Spins (The Lady Vanishes) by Ethel Lina White

This book was recommended to me by a good friend. It was made into a movie by Alfred Hitchcock in 1938; the book's original title was The Wheel Spins, while the movie title is The Lady Vanishes. I enjoyed the book and plan to see the movie soon; it is available to stream on Netflix. It is the story of Iris Carr, who befriends Miss Froy during a train trip. When Iris awakens after a nap, Miss Froy has disappeared, and no one else on the train admits to ever having seen her. This is my Forgotten Classic for the Back to the Classics reading challenge. I rate it 4 out of 5.

I really liked this book, too, Cheryl, and now I can't remember if I saw the movie. I think I borrowed it from the library, but we have Netflix, so I can check my memory.
