The staff recommends...
Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier. This is a new feature on our blog. We recently set up a display with some favorite selections of our staff members. If you're not sure what to read next, check out some of our favorites, and be sure to let us know what you think! The narrator of Rebecca is a young woman whose name we never know. She is working as a companion to a snobbish widow when she meets Maxim de Winter, a rich, handsome, but somewhat troubled man who sweeps her off her feet and immediately marries her. He carries her off to his family estate called Manderley, and things get a bit dicey for the poor girl as the past comes back to haunt them both. Du Maurier is a master of suspense, coupled with a generous dose of romance. This is a genuine classic. Look for another of our staff recommends next week.
