Rebecca was Daphne du Maurier's most famous and best-loved novel. Countless readers wondered: what happened next? Out of fire-wracked ruins of Manderley, would love and renewal rise phoenix-like from the ashes of the embittered past? Married to the sophisticated, wordly-wise Maxim, the second Mrs de Winter's life should be happy and fulfilled. But the vengeful ghost of Rebecca, Maxim's first wife, continues to cast its long shadow over them. Back in England after an absence of over ten years, it seems as if happiness will at last be theirs. But the de Winters still have to reckon with two hate-consumed figures they once knew - both of whom have very long memories...

An ambitious attempt at a sequel to Daphne du Maurier's classic Rebecca. So many intriguing questions remained unanswered after Manderley's catastrophic fire... Hill makes a brave, conscientious stab at answering them, and at reproducing du Maurier's unique atmosphere and style, with some success. (Kirkus UK)
