9780786890439: The Diary of Ellen Rimbauer: My Life at Rose Red

At the turn of the twentieth century, Ellen Rimbauer, the young bride of Seattle industrialist John Rimbauer, began keeping a remarkable diary. This diary became the secret place where Ellen could confess her anxieties about her new marriage, express her confusion over her emerging sexuality, and contemplate the nightmare that her life was becoming. The diary not only follows the development of a girl into womanhood, it follows the construction of the Rimbauer mansion - called Rose Red - an enormous home that would be the site of so many horrific and inexplicable tragedies in the year ahead.

The Diary of Ellen Rimbauer: My Life at Rose Red is a rare document, one that gives us an unusual view of daily life among the aristocracy in the early 1900s, a window into one woman's hidden emotional torment, and a record of the mysterious events at Rose Red that scandalised society at the time. Edited by Joyce Reardon, Ph.D., as part of her research, the diary is being published as preparations are being made by Dr Reardon to enter Rose Red and fully investigate its disturbing history.

Product Description:

The Diary of Ellen Rimbauer gives us an unusual view of daily life among the aristocracy in the early 1900s, a window into one woman's hidden emotional torment, and a record of the events at Rose Red that scandalised society at the time.

Review:

The Diary of Ellen Rimbauer--My Life at Rose Red, a spin-off from the Stephen King miniseries Rose Red, provides the interested reader with some terrifying back stories to Rose Red's tales of doomed psychics and Dr Joyce Reardon's expedition into the dark rooms of a house that is another of King's great Bad Places. At the beginning of the 20th century, magnate Rimbauer builds Rose Red as a present and prison for his young wife, a place in which she is to be displayed as a trophy and have her will broken. He does not know his woman--Ellen fights back with all the means at her disposal, which progressively come to include the attributes of the house he ill-advisedly built on a cursed site; people disappear in Rose Red, vanishing between one room and another, and are never seen again except as blood-smeared wraiths. They are especially likely to disappear if they are the women with whom Rimbauer humiliates his wife. This is a powerful story of a woman developing power and learning little from that responsibility except that she likes the infliction of pain and terror; we come to empathise enough with Ellen that her slow corruption is as terrifying as the nightmares that occasionally surface in her narrative. -- Roz Kaveney
