MY COUSIN RACHEL I was in the carriage ready to leave when a last letter arrived from Ambrose: For God's sake, come quickly! Rachel, my torment, has won. I am dying. Come quickly, or it will be too late! I began my journey with a teerible fear in my heart. It was the 10th of July. I knew I could not reach Ambrose until the middle of August.

My Cousin Rachel is the gripping story of a Victorian young man whose placid life in the English countryside is turned inside-out by an older woman. The young man is Philip Ashley, the novelšs narrator. Orphaned at an early age, hešs been raised by his bachelor uncle Ambrose, who falls in love and marries while traveling in Florence, then dies there in suspicious circumstances. Shortly after her husbandšs death, Ambrosešs widow turns up in England, setting the stage for the unfolding of a relationship between the callow Philip and the beautiful, sophisticated, mysterious widow. And while Philip impetuously embraces the role of the moth flapping full-tilt toward the flame, the widow never puts a foot wrong. Is she designedly luring Philip to his doom? Might she even have had a hand in Ambrosešs death? Originally published in 1951, My Cousin Rachel was made into a film in 1953.About the Author:
