Description
Set on the Cornish coast during the era of the English Civil War, this 1946 novel by the author of Rebecca crackles with character and wit comparable to that of Gone with the Wind. Honor Harris, a feisty, 18-year-old beauty with a sharp wit and a sharper tongue, captures the attention of Richard Grenvile, a commanding and charismatic man with a sometimes cruel sense of justice. But when a riding accident cripples Honor in the days before their wedding, she resigns herself to a life without Richard. Fifteen years later, war forces Honor to shelter with relatives at the estate of Menabilly, and Richard, now a general in Charles I's army, storms back into her life, bringing with him conflicting emotions and, for Honor, the discovery of a dark secret at Menabilly.

"[Daphne] Du Maurier is a magician, a virtuoso. She can conjure up tragedy, tension, suspense, the ridiculous, the vain, the romantic."Good Housekeeping

"History comes brilliantly alive ... all of it told with the practiced tempo of Miss du Maurier."NYTimes
