Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

"Last night I dreamed I went to Manderley again." So sparks one of the most celebrated books in history. Mrs. de Winters is a newly married woman living in the shadow of her predecessor, Rebecca. Rebecca was the perfect, graceful and charming beauty that everyone loved.  But was Rebecca really all that? Does Mr. de Winters wish he was still married to Rebecca? 

This Gothic novel has become the standard for suspense. I really enjoyed it and it definitely lives up to it's hype. I loved all the characters and how they wove in together. Maxim's family especially entertained me, and Maxim was perfect for the book.

A really great novel. Thanks to the publisher for the chance to read this classic.
