About the Author:

Daphne du Maurier was born in 1907 and died in 1989. Her many successful novels include Frenchman's Creek, My Cousin Rachel and Rebecca, famously filmed by Alfred Hitchcock in 1940.

From Library Journal:

More than just a memoir, this is a history of du Maurier's love affair with Cornwall. In this last work, completed just before her death in April 1989, she interrupts a sketchy outline of her life with passages from such works a Frenchman's Creek, Jamaica Inn, and Rebecca to show the influence of the rugged mythical landscape on her imagination and storytelling. In addition, appropriate pictures of the countryside, harbors, and buildings are included to further convey the mystical quality of the area. The effect is less than successful, however. The text shifts abruptly from exposition to the excerpted passages, leaving the reader confused. While it is interesting to know the source of du Maurier's inspiration, the book leans too heavily on these selections.
