A beautiful biography in story format of the life of the prolific author Daphne Du Maurier. The author portrays Du Maurier as a fascinating complex individual. This portrayal is very consistent with the expectation that a fan of "Rebecca" would have of the personality of the author.
I heard it on CD, and it was engaging throughout.
Du Maurier wrote so many books and short strories. I remember reading many of them as a teenager. Her works seem timeless. Yet, interestingly, so few of her books are held in VPL's collection.
