Rebecca

Posted by lori . 2 Comments

A rich, gothic romance, Rebecca is not the name of the young, current wife of Maxim de Winter, it’s the name of the late Mrs. de Winter.  Although dead at the start of the novel, the memory of Rebecca reaches beyond the grave and holds sway over the living.  This is a wonderful book with characters you won’t forget.

The movie, directed by Alfred Hitchcock, starring Laurence Olivier and Joan Fontaine won the Academy Award in 1940 for Best Picture and Best Cinematography, Black and White.

    That is one book I’ve always meant to read, but have never gotten around to. Have you read The Little Stranger? I have a feeling it’s a similar tale.

      Yet more evidence that we were separated at birth. I have read The Little Stranger and it was the cover and description that hooked me. I LOVE a good ghost story.
