My Cousin RachelReview:
She wrote exciting plots, she was highly skilled at arousing suspense, and she was, too, a writer of fearless originality (Guardian)
No other popular writer has so triumphantly defied classification . . . She satisfied all the questionable criteria of popular fiction, and yet satisfied the exacting requirements of "real literature", something very few novelists ever do (Margaret Forster)
From the first page . . . the reader is back in the moody, brooding atmosphere of Rebecca (New York Times Book Review)
Du Maurier is a storyteller whose sole aim is to bewitch and beguile. And in My Cousin Rachel she does both, with Rebecca looking fondly over her shoulder (New York Times)
In the same category as REBECCA, but an even more consummate piece of storytelling (GUARDIAN 'From the first page . . . the reader is back in the moody, brooding atmosphere of Rebecca’)
