Rebecca

book
1938

'Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again...'

Working as a lady's companion, the 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. She accepts, but whisked from glamorous Monte Carlo to the ominous and brooding Manderley, 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.

Alfred Hitchcock directed a film adaptation of Rebecca in 1940 starring Laurence Olivier as Maxim and Joan Fontaine as Mrs de Winter.

Excellent entertainment ... du Maurier created a scale by which modern women can measure their feelings. Stephen King


Her works survives because she was one of the great story-tellers of the last century, one who turned melodrama into an art form. 

Linda Grant


Get stuck into some classic, classy fiction this summer with Daphne du Maurier’s much-loved novels…

DIVA


The twists and turns come out thick and fast and a breathless suspense will have you racing to the end.

The Independent


For a beach book with real bite, you can’t go wrong with du Maurier.
