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.

    I've lost track of the times I have read this book. From its famous opening line to the closing images it conjures up, it paints a picture you lose yourself in. The dark spectre of Mrs Danvers, the innocence of the new Mrs De Winter and the haunting presence of the late Rebecca creates tensions and mystery which surrounds the beautiful country home of Maxim De Winter, Manderley.
