Rebecca – by Daphne du Maurier

9 03 2019

I had a couple of friends rave about this and thought I’d brave a “classic” if it came so highly recommended (at least it’s 20th century!). It took me a fair while to read the first chapter or two, but once the description stopped and the story started, it gripped me. The second half of the book I could hardly stop and put it down!

The book has a really interesting quirk in that you never find out the name of the main character who narrates the entire story, and while we know she is “young”, we never know just how young.

Our heroine meets a widower in the south of France and marries him, but when they arrive at his large Cornish estate, everything is still very much in the shadow of his first wife, Rebecca. I won’t give much more away, but it was much easier to read than expected and I really enjoyed it – as my friends who recommended it will verify as I frantically messaged them!
