Sur la Côte d Azur, une jeune femme peu sûre d elle, la narratrice, tombe amoureuse du très riche Maximilien de Winter, d un rang social plus élevé qu elle. Ils se marient et partent vivre à Manderley, célèbre et magnifique manoir en Cornouailles. Mais la « présence » invisible de Rebecca, la précédente épouse de Maximilien, est immédiatement perceptible, comme de son vivant, lorsqu'elle dominait le ménage et la maisonnée. Présence obsédante, renforcée par la sévère Mme Danvers, gouvernante du manoir. Rebecca s est-elle noyée par accident comme tout le monde le pense ? Quand on retrouve un cadavre, l'enquête est rouverte et de Winter est accusé du meurtre : leur amour survivra-t-il ?

About the Author:

Daphne du Maurier (1907-89) was born in London, the daughter of the famous actor-manager Sir Gerald du Maurier and granddaughter of George du Maurier, the author and artist. In 1931 her first novel, The Loving Spirit, was published. A biography of her father and three other novels followed, but it was the novel Rebecca that launched her into the literary stratosphere and made her one of the most popular authors of her day. In 1932, du Maurier married Major Frederick Browning, with whom she had three children.Many of du Maurier's bestselling novels and short stories were adapted into award-winning films, including Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds and Nicolas Roeg's Don't Look Now. In 1969 du Maurier was awarded a DBE. She lived most of her life in Cornwall, the setting for many of her books.

Review:

From the opening sentence - "Last night I dreamed I went to Manderley again" - to the final - "And the ashes blew towards us with the salt wind from the sea" - I was hooked ... Rebecca is one of the underrated classics of the 20th century ... Rebecca is a masterpiece in which du Maurier pulls off several spectacular high-wire acts that many great writers wouldn't attempt -- Jim Crace * Guardian * A mesmerising novel which reveals more on each reading -- Helen Dunmore
