    DescriptionLast 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.

    Review quote
    Excellent entertainment ... du Maurier created a scale by which modern women can measure their feelings. STEPHEN KING The two words most commonly used in descriptions of Du Maurier's all-time classic are 'haunting and 'magical'. Both are accurate.' GOOD BOOK GUIDE 'I am reminded of how profoundly du Maurier changed the way I felt about myself, how she engaged and excited me with her writing.' The DAILY TELEGRAPH 'As a new generation of readers are introduced to the wicked housekeeper Mrs Danvers and learn Maxim de Winter's terrible secret, this chilling, suspenseful tale is as fresh and readable as it was when it was first written, more than 60 years ago.'
    Review text
    One of my favourite books is Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier. It has always fascinated me because the most vivid character in the story - and the most alive - is Rebecca, who is in fact dead. The hidden secret, of course, is how she died and why she died but the other secret - perhaps the more intriguing - is what is the second Mrs De Winter's Christian name? Review by MINETTE WALTERS Editor's note: Minette Walters' latest novel, The Breaker, is due to be published in paperback in May. (Kirkus UK)
