Description

Rebecca was Daphne du Maurier's most famous and best-loved novel. Countless readers wondered: what happened next? Out of fire-wracked ruins of Manderley, would love and renewal rise phoenix-like from the ashes of the embittered past? Married to the sophisticated, wordly-wise Maxim, the second Mrs de Winter's life should be happy and fulfilled. But the vengeful ghost of Rebecca, Maxim's first wife, continues to cast its long shadow over them. Back in England after an absence of over ten years, it seems as if happiness will at last be theirs. But the de Winters still have to reckon with two hate-consumed figures they once knew - both of whom have very long memories...

Reviews

"Retains all the brooding menace and enigmatic mystery of the original" Daily Mail "The oustanding virtue of Mrs de Winter is the elegance of its style... Susan Hill, winner of both the Somerset Maugham and Whitbread prizes, ignores the lush emotionalism of the original, sacrificing psychological menace for a fresh, modest lyricism which suits both her story and her times...dignified and respectful" Independent "Splendid... A very good ghost story" -- Beryl Bainbridge Evening Standard "Susan Hill's imagination is a force to be reckoned with" The Times "Done excellently, with professionalism and panache" Sunday Times
