Although I love Rebecca and My Sister Rachel, in many ways I find her autobiographical stuff more interesting.

Good point. Her autobiographical work is amazing, too!

I'd also add The House on the Strand to my list of favorites.

I know I've read it, but I can't remember the plot.

I've only read Jamaica Inn but I love the quote you used. :)

Aw, thanks! I quite liked Jamaica Inn, but Rebecca and The House on the Strand are my favorites of her novels.
