Rebecca


Book #114 Read in 2014
Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

This classic novel has been on my shelf for years.  In the mood for a meaty read, I decided it was time to read it and I enjoyed the gothic novel.  Rebecca was the first wife of Maxim de Winter and she died.  Max seems to be moving on when he meets a young lady and marries her shortly after.  He brings her home to Manderley and she realizes that not everyone is happy about there being a new Mrs. de Winter.  As layers are pulled back, revelations that are not necessarily cheerful occur.  This book reminded me of another favorite of mine, Wuthering Heights.  I found both books to have lush writing.
