Manderley Forever by Tatiana de Rosnay. Published by St. Martins

For most of us, the word Manderley immediately conjures up images of Rebecca, Daphne du Maurier’s classic Gothic novel. The fact that the one word has the power to stir our imaginations decades after it was written speaks volumes about du Maurier and her work. Now, one of the most lauded authors in modern times takes on the story of one of her own favorite authors.  As a child de Rosnay read Rebecca so often, she nearly had it memorized; as an adult and author herself, she  jumped at the chance to write du Maurier’s story. She learns that du Maurier was much more than the two romance novels she’s most famous for. Tracing her life from childhood to taciturn old woman, de Rosnay brings to life one of the most storied authors of the twentieth century
