This bright edition of Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca is a psychological thriller that tells the tale of a woman, who interestingly Du Maurier never names, who becomes obsessed with her husband’s first wife. Much of the story is then told in flashback. A shy, awkward young woman, she is in Monte-Carlo, working for an elderly socialite, when she meets Maximilian de Winter. He is a wealthy widower whose wife, Rebecca, drowned in a sailboat accident. After a whirlwind courtship, the young woman and Maxim marry and later settle at Manderley. The narrator begins to feel progressively inferior to Rebecca, despite receiving compliments from various people. To the second Mrs. de Winter, Rebecca personifies glamour and gaiety, and she does not think that she can compete with this dead paragon to win Maxim’s love. This book would make a great gift for any Daphne du Maurier lover and add a pop of orange to any bookshelf.
