Rebecca's TaleLarge Print - 2002
Twenty years after the death of Rebecca, the hauntingly beautiful first wife of Maxim de Winter, family friend Colonel Julyan receives an anonymous parcel. It contains a notebook labeled Rebecca's Tale, a photograph of Rebecca as a young child, and a postcard of Manderley, the de Winter's family seat, which was razed to the ground after Rebecca's death.Scholar Terence Gray has also appeared in town, looking for clues to Rebecca's life and death. His presence causes a stir, and the tongues that wagged about Rebecca now attend to the close ties Gray has formed to the Colonel and his daughter, Ellie.Ellie, Gray, and the Colonel begin a search for the real Rebecca. Was she the manipulative, promiscuous woman her husband claimed, or the Gothic heroine of tragic proportions that others have suggested? Was her death suicide, or was it murder?Sally Beauman has taken Daphne du Maurier's celebrated twentieth-century classic, Rebecca, and crafted a compelling companion for the twenty-first century.
