REBECCA

Rebecca is a beautiful, haunting, gripping tale of love, hate and deceit told in the simplest and most endearing manner by Daphne Du Maurier. I first read Rebecca when I was twenty, as I was a few days back when I read it all over again as I chanced upon it while tidying up my library.


The Author weaves a beautiful web of mystery that holds you captive until the very end. We readers feel the anxiety, apprehension and fear that the protagonist describes and together we move through each chapter with an anxiety that only ends with the end of the novel itself.


Rebecca begins with the description of Manderly, a beautiful old mansion, with its menacing woods, rising turrets and long winding drive. ''A jewel in the hollow of a hand,'' Manderly, ridden by evil and surrounded by mystery is the scene where the tale unfolds. Rebecca, Manderly's late mistress, husband Max De Winter, Manderly's new mistress, De Winter's second wife, and Mrs. Danvers the maid are the principle characters in this brilliant bestseller of all times.


Du Maurier has created a masterpiece, a giant among novels. To reveal more would be destroying the magic of reading it for yourselves. A haunting love story, Rebecca will always remain a lovely read…a tale of unforgettable characters, a true gothic novel.
