A pure delight

The most delightful love story. Beautifully written, in typical Du Maurier style. Searching for this book on line eventually brought me to 'Audible", as although i knew "Frenchman's Creek" existed in this format, unabridged and read by John Castle, it seemed impossible to buy. Now i am quietly working my way through the Audible Du Maurier library. Frenchman's Creek is one of Du Maurier's shorter novels, and leaves the reader/listener longing for more, but there really is not one word too few or too many. It will make you want to visit Cornwall at the next possible opportunity, as is the case in many of her novels. This one, however, has charm, romance, and a little bit of comedy, all wrapped up in the same short book. If you have never read anything by Daphne du Maurier, i suggest you start with this. You will definitely look for more.

So excited that this is on audio

I waited a long time for this particular Daphne Du Maurier. You can almost taste the salt in the air, and hear the birds calling. Well written, well narrated and wonderfully evocative, a true love story. A must for any lover of well written books.
