Rebecca

41ufEpPh-WL._SY346_I kept hearing about Rebecca by Daphne de Maurier and I thought that I should have read it before now. So, I grabbed it. And, boy am I glad I did. What a great book. For those of you who haven’t read it, pick it up – it’s a quick and enjoyable read, full of suspense and good twists and turns. It has a slow and somewhat confusing start, but stick with it. It’s worth it. In short, the narrator begins as a paid companion to a wealthy woman. While on holiday with her companion in Monte Carlo, the narrator meets Max de Winter whose first wife died a year earlier at their estate, Manderley. The narrator and Max marry hastily and return to Manderley, where she must take over the daily details of running the estate, which she is poorly equipped to do. Add Rebecca’s history and the mystery surrounding her death, and you have the makings of a great story.
