Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With these words, the reader is ushered into an isolated gray stone mansion on the windswept Cornish coast, as the second Mrs. Maxim de Winter recalls the chilling events that transpired as she began her new life as the young bride of a husband she barely knew. For in every corner of every room were phantoms of a time dead but not forgotten a past devotedly preserved by the sinister housekeeper, Mrs. Danvers: a suite immaculate and untouched, clothing laid out and ready to be worn, but not by any of the great house's current occupants. With an eerie presentiment of evil tightening her heart, the second Mrs. de Winter walked in the shadow of her mysterious predecessor, determined to uncover the darkest secrets and shattering truths about Maxim's first wife the late and hauntingly beautiful Rebecca.

This special edition of Rebecca includes excerpts from Daphne du Maurier's The Rebecca Notebook and Other Memories, an essay on the real Manderley, du Maurier's original epilogue to the book, and more.

Synopsis:

Forced by the sudden death of her father to act as paid companion to the comical - and tiresome - Mrs Van Hopper, our herione meets handsome widower Maxim de Winter on a trip to Monaco and accepts his sudden marriage proposal. But she is unprepared for the shadows cast by his past.

This is a book which transcends the "Romance" genre and is good literature - a classic. One almost gets the feeling "Manderley" is the hero! I read this book as a teenager and loved it. On reading it again I realized how much I'd missed the first time around. Every page has something that one wants to record. Some remarks of the narrator (who remains nameless and is only known to us as Mrs. de Winter) are so profound - for example, I could fight against a living woman but I was powerful against the dead one. This book is a love story and yet a thriller. It is a great book; no wonder it has stood the test of time and will continue to do so.

My daughter was assigned to read this for middle school, so I picked up a copy to read, too. The book starts slowly, but develops into an intriguing mystery/romance. The title character, Rebecca, is no longer alive at the start of the book, but her memory has a stronger presence than many living characters. Her husband has remarried, and the story is told through the eyes of his second wife. As the story progresses, I had almost that same shivery feeling that I got from the movie, "Gaslight." This is a story that is worth reading, especially if you like classics, and I don't want to reveal too much by saying anymore.
