Reader's note

This stylish 1970s version of Frenchman's Creek from publisher Penguin, will look wonderful on any bookshelf! This book is historical romance at its best! It tells the compelling story of a young woman of fashion and her affair with a French philosopher-pirate, the terror of the Cornish coast in restoration times! Daphne Du Maurier's writing, really captures the sense of adventure - The yachtsman goes below to the snug security of his cabin, and browsing amongst his books he finds at last the thing for which he has been searching. It is a map of Cornwall, ill-drawn and inaccurate, picked up in an idle moment in a Truro bookshop. The parchment is faded and yellow, the markings indistinct. The spelling belongs to another century. Helford river is traced fairly enough, and so are the hamlets of Constantine and Gweek. But the yachtsman looks away from them to the marking of a narrow inlet, branching from the parent river, its short, twisting course running westward into a valley. Someone has scratched the name in thin faded characters-Frenchman's Creek. - once you start reading, you won't be able to put it down. This book is the perfect gift or simply treat yourself!
