Walking on Sunshine

Daphne du Maurier – Rebecca – 2010/TBR

The Back of the Book: Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again …

Working as a lady’s companion, the heroine of Rebecca learns her place.  Her future looks bleak until, on a trip to the South of France, she meets Max 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 housekeeper, 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.
