Description

"From the first page…the reader is back in the moody, brooding atmosphere of Rebecca." —The New York Times From the bestselling author of Rebecca, another classic set in beautiful and mysterious Cornwall. Philip Ashley's older cousin Ambrose, who raised the orphaned Philip as his own son, has died in Rome. Philip, the heir to Ambrose's beautiful English estate, is crushed that the man he loved died far from home. He is also suspicious. While in Italy, Ambrose fell in love with Rachel, a beautiful English and Italian woman. But the final, brief letters Ambrose wrote hint that his love had turned to paranoia and fear. Now Rachel has arrived at Philip's newly inherited estate. Could this exquisite woman, who seems to genuinely share Philip's grief at Ambrose's death, really be as cruel as Philip imagined? Or is she the kind, passionate woman with whom Ambrose fell in love? Philip struggles to answer this question, knowing Ambrose's estate, and his own future, will be destroyed if his answer is wrong.

And in My Cousin Rachel she does both, with Rebecca looking fondly over her shoulder." New York Times "Double-distilled readers' delight." Manchester Guardian
