About this title:
Synopsis:
Inspired by a grisly discovery in the nineteenth century, The King's General was the first of du Maurier's novels to be written at Menabilly, the model for Manderley in Rebecca. Set in the seventeenth century, it tells the story of a country and a family riven by war, and features one of fiction's most original heroines. Honor Harris is only eighteen when she first meets Richard Grenvile, proud, reckless - and utterly captivating. But following a riding accident, Honor must reconcile herself to a life alone. As Richard rises through the ranks of the army, marries and makes enemies, Honor remains true to him, and finally discovers the secret of Menabilly.

About the Author:
Daphne du Maurier was born in 1906 and educated at home and in Paris. She began writing in 1928, and many of her bestselling novels were set in Cornwall, where she lived for most of her life. She was made a DBE in 1969 and died in 1989.

From AudioFile:
Daphne du Maurier's skill cannot be contested though this predictable, melodramatic story of love, tragedy and shame among royals in medieval England doesn't rank with some of her other works. Stevenson is up to the task, however, and moves through this tedious tale graciously, achieving a presentation better than the book itself. Indeed, the effort the narrator puts into the characterizations, and theatrical skill she brings to the undertaking elevate the story and make it, if not gripping, at least fairly interesting. Stevenson's low, earthy voice compels the listener and saves the day. Hopefully, we'll hear more from Stevenson. R.B.F. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
