Publisher's Summary

A happily married woman commits suicide for no apparent reason; a young man tries to break some important news to the beautiful girl he had hoped to marry; a con girl plays the same bold game too often and a novelist embarks on a romantic adventure but is woefully disappointed.
In all these stories, glimpses into personal lives are vividly portrayed, but they are all written with warmth and are wonderfully evocative.

Didn't realise what a master of the short story Daphne du Maurier was until I listened to these. Great stories, very varied, nicely read, and many feel very contemporary. Highly recommended.

Lost for words..."the best production I have ever listened to"

This was an absolutely amazing performance by Edward DeSousa. One of the most brilliant audible stories yet.....I cannot believe that all the different voices, accents and styles were from one performer.

So much so that it led me to research the background of the narrator and, in fact his background is in Hull and I loved his ?Hull accent in one of the marine stories which contrasts significantly with the "well to do"accents that often prevail in this genre.

Daphne du Maurier is at her very best in the short stories they just blew me away, each and every story made me stand back at the end and take at least 10 minutes to digest!

A great listen for when you're busy doing other things, driving, decorating dog walking even trying to get to sleep!
But I advise you may become sidetracked and thoughtful and not get the decorating done as quick as you had planned... Well, that's my excuse...
