Daphne du Maurier books


“I suppose sooner or later in the life of everyone comes a moment of trial. We all of us have our particular devil who rides us and torments us, and we must give battle in the end.”
― Daphne du Maurier, Rebecca (1938)

How appropriate for her to have a Friday the 13th birthday! :-) (Not every year, of course, but still!)

I am sadly under-read in her work.

My favorites are probably Rebecca and The House on the Strand, but I've thoroughly enjoyed everything of hers I've read.

I found "Rule Britannia" rather disappointing.
