Why is Rebecca such a magical book? Because writer Du Maurier delivers the details with such brilliance.
In the opening chapter, the heroine sees Manderley in a dream. Readers are enticed to follow the heroine down a (rather spooky) path, while Du Maurier enlivens what would otherwise just be half-dead plants into an army of soldiers.
Here are my favorite quotes I noted down as I read the book in October.
If you're in London, here's a link to an indie book shop that you can buy the book from!
