"Daphne du Maurier"

Daphne du Maurier was a true when it comes to novelists. She had written some of the best books of her time which continues to be a source of enjoyment for readers all over the world. Perhaps her most well known books are Rebecca, Jamaica Inn and Frenchman's Creek but there are so many more novels and short stories to enjoy. Her first novel was The Loving Spirit, a story about one Cornish family through many generations and their fight to survive while making a living from building boats.

In contrast, her last book, The House on the Strand is about a man who begins taking some kind of drug which enables him to go into the past where he learns about Cornwall from many years ago. Both of these books would make excellent films - I have no idea why they haven't been snatched up. Everyone should read at least one du Maurier book!

    Sorry for low rating but needs far more info. Du Maurier is such a wonderful author a little of her life and background would be interesting. Linda x

    The name reminded me of a book I read of hers. It was The House on the Strand. I thought it was brilliant too! Good review.
