"Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley ..."
Daphne Du Maurier's unforgettably moving tale of passion, betrayal and suspense.
A ladies companion, holidaying in the South of France, meets the mysterious and reserved widower, Maxim de Winter, and in the bright lights of Monte Carlo the couple soon become engaged and married. After the first few weeks of marriage, Maxim and the new Mrs de Winter return to continue their married life at the de Winter Estate in Cornwall - Manderley.
It is there that Mrs de Winter realises the power of her predecessor, Rebecca, and the hold that Maxim's first wife holds over the estate and its inhabitants. As Mrs de Winter struggles to come to terms with her new role in the household, and her relationship with Maxim, constant reminders of Rebecca appear at every turn. This unearthly presence is embodied in the form of Rebecca's loyal servant, the sinister housekeeper, Mrs Danvers. As the memory of Rebecca refuses to die, Mrs de Winter is forced to discover the horrific truth behind Rebecca's life and death, the shadows which torment Maxim and the secrets of Manderley, which unfurl to threaten her and Maxim's very existence.
