Rebecca

Rebecca

Randy, one of my online buddies, recommended I read  this classic of Gothic Romance written by Dame Daphne Du Maurier.  Since I have been so faithful to not keeping up with the reading list I set up for myself I decided to give it a try.  Rebecca is a lovely, old fashioned book with a solid plot and some very interesting characters.  We have the narrator of the story, a young, naive girl that works as a companion for a rich American woman, and Maxim De Winter, a forty something widower, owner of Manderley — a great old estate in Cornwall.  He is haunted by the dead of his lovely, sylph like wife Rebecca and goes to  the South of France on a holiday.  He meets the narrator there  and marries her in a whim.  He takes her to his great estate Manderley to be the new Mrs. De Winter, but the shadow of Rebecca haunts her every turn.  What exactly happens… well, you have to read it to find out!
