Poor, plain Mrs. de Winter. She scurries around Manderley like a frightened little mouse, fraught with insecurity, terrified of the servants, sweet and young and stupidly in love. Despite all this yearning, her emotionally catatonic husband dreams only of her predecessor, Rebecca. And Rebecca's presence clings to Manderley like a sinister negligee. Daphne du Maurier applies pressure expertly; she knows all about the kinetic urgency of a ghost story, and the appeal of a good madonna/whore dichotomy.

— Carly

After reading "Rebecca," you'll pull your collar against the fog and look at everyone askance, assuming they have a dark, sordid history and cannot under any circumstance be trusted. It's true. They cannot. Do not trust them.

— Landon

Description


"Last Night I Dreamt
I Went To Manderley Again." So the second Mrs. Maxim de Winter remembered the chilling events that led her down the turning drive past ther beeches, white and naked, to the isolated gray stone manse on the windswept Cornish coast. With a husband she barely knew, the young bride arrived at this immense estate, only to be inexorably drawn into the life of the first Mrs. de Winter, the beautiful Rebecca, dead but never forgotten...her suite of rooms never touched, her clothes ready to be worn, her servant -- the sinister Mrs. Danvers -- still loyal. And as an eerie presentiment of evil tightened around her heart, the second Mrs. de Winter began her search for the real fate of Rebecca...for the secrets of Manderley.
