Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca


Loved it. If you appreciated Wilkie Collin's The Woman in White, you will enjoy Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca. Young love. Old love. A beach cottage with its own village idiot (or is he?). A beautiful, beloved, deceased first wife (or is she?). The intimidating Mrs. Danvers, house-keeper with an agenda. And our own dear heroine, penniless and without prospects or a name. Literally, we never do learn her name.

Want to get away from your late winter humdrums? Off to Manderley with you.

I have not read this. Adding to my library list now. Thanks for the reminder. :)

Hi Aunt Suzie,

I just ordered it off of Amazon at your Wilkie Collins-like recommendation.
Have you read "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society"? It got a lot of press, which doesn't usually mean a thing, but my bookworm friend Gilly lent it to me and I read it all yesterday! It is delightful, and reminded me of you.

Yes, Kara. Your mom gave it to my mom for Christmas and I just read it. I think it is next Saturday's review.
