About this Recording

MAURIER, D.: Rebecca (Abridged)

‘Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again.’ These famous words open the most popular novel by Daphne du Maurier, the story of an intense romance set in a mysterious house in Cornwall. Its unforgettable atmosphere and tension has transformed it from a popular romance on the page and on film to become a modern classic. Here, it is presented in a new and absorbing recording by Emma Fielding.
