Book Description

Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again ...Working as a lady's companion, the orphaned heroine of Rebecca learns her place. Life begins to look very bleak until, on a trip to the South of France, she meets Maxim de Winter, a handsome widower whose sudden proposal of marriage takes her by surprise. Whisked from glamorous Monte Carlo to his brooding estate, Manderley, on the Cornish Coast, the new Mrs de Winter finds Max a changed man. And the memory of his dead wife Rebecca is forever kept alive by the forbidding Mrs Danvers ...Not since Jane Eyre has a heroine faced such difficulty with the Other Woman. An international bestseller that has never gone out of print, Rebecca is the haunting story of a young girl consumed by love and the struggle to find her identity.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » One of my favourite books is Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier. It has always fascinated me because the most vivid character in the story - and the most alive - is Rebecca, who is in fact dead. The hidden secret, of course, is how she died and why she died but the other secret - perhaps the more intriguing - is what is the second Mrs De Winter's Christian name? Review by MINETTE WALTERS Editor's note: Minette Walters' latest novel, The Breaker, is due to be published in paperback in May. (Kirkus UK)

Book Review: Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier - Reviewed by (08 Jun 2011)

du Maurier's prose is exquisite. The narrator's journey is at times "edge of the seat" stuff with a strong sense of doom hanging over the book right to the last page. The story has lots of twist. It wasn't until about two-thirds through that I realised that the protagonist, the narrator, had no name. This is a deliberate ploy to make the main character, Rebecca, overwhelm the story. It seemed I could see, feel and walk in Manderley, the stately home where most of the book is set. The writing is that powerful. This is definitely a book I recommend to others.

Author Biography - Daphne Du Maurier

Daphne du Maurier (1907-89) was born in London, the daughter of the famous actor-manager Sir Gerald du Maurier and granddaughter of George du Maurier, the author and artist. In 1931 her first novel, The Loving Spirit, was published. A biography of her father and three other novels followed, but it was the novel Rebecca that launched her into the literary stratosphere and made her one of the most popular authors of her day. In 1932, du Maurier married Major Frederick Browning, with whom she had three children. Many of du Maurier's bestselling novels and short stories were adapted into award-winning films, including Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds and Nicolas Roeg's Don't Look Now. In 1969 du Maurier was awarded a DBE. She lived most of her life in Cornwall, the setting for many of her books.
