Staff Pick

Having devoured as much Daphne du Maurier as I could get my hands on as a teenager (after my sisters were done, of course), I can confidently recommend Rebecca as the best gothic love story and mystery I have ever read.
Recommended by Mary Z., Powells.com

Part mystery, part Gothic romance, Rebecca is a novel awash in fear, taut suspense, and an overwhelming feeling of doom. The deceased Rebecca has a larger-than-life presence — so much so that the new Mrs. DeWinter's first name is never revealed. But things are not always what they seem. Max DeWinter and his new bride tangle with the creepy housekeeper, Mrs. Danvers, and the oppressive presence of Rebecca. With a shocking ending, a gorgeous setting, and amazing characters, Rebecca is a true classic. I envy all who read it for the first time. Amazing!

Publisher Comments:

"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.

Synopsis:

Rebecca has been dead for several months, but her sinister influence is still very much alive at Manderley, as Maxim de Winter's second wife soon comes to realize.

About the Author

Daphne du Maurier (1907-1989) has been called one of the great shapers of popular culture and the modern imagination. Among her more famous works are The Scapegoat, Jamaica Inn, Rebecca, and the short story The Birds, all of which were subsequently made into films, the latter three directed by Alfred Hitchcock.

Rebecca is a great book. It is very suspenseful. I couldn't put this one down, and I'd suggest reading more of Daphne du Maurier's books!

A classic. The writing is beautiful, haunting and eerie, and will take you on a mysterious, twisting journey that you won't want to escape.
