About The Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier Full Audiobook free

Narrated by Anna Massey
“Rebecca is a work of immense intelligence and wit, elegantly written, thematically solid, suspenseful..” –Washington Post

‘Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again.’

So begins Daphne du Maurier’s masterpiece, Rebecca. When the story’s nameless narrator, a young and unassuming lady’s maid, meets a wealthy and handsome widower, she is immediately swept off her feet in what many would’ve considered an unlikely 20th century match. Maxim de Winter, the owner of a large country estate by the name of Manderley, whisks his new bride away to his home in Cornwall, hoping to rid himself of his sinister past. As the heroine begins her new life at Manderley, she comes to the realisation that the shadow of her predecessor, Rebecca de Winter, lives on through the masonry of the home and through the stern and scathing housekeeper, Mrs Danvers.

A tense and unnerving tale, Rebecca depicts the crippling effect that self-doubt and external manipulation can have on a young and innocent woman’s spirit. Due to her own feelings of jealousy, du Maurier based the tale on her husband’s first fiancée, claiming that Rebecca would demonstrate the ‘influence of a first wife on a second’, where ‘wife two is haunted day and night’ and ‘tragedy is looming very close.’ Much like her heroine, Daphne du Maurier was said to be solitary, comfortable with her own company and possessed of an incredible imagination. First and foremost, however, du Maurier was an excellent storyteller, and Rebecca is undoubtedly a shining example of her talent.
