having rediscovered Daphne Du Maurier I am working my way through her titles. I hadn't heard of this title before and was a little wary due to other reviews. I loved it. The story is good and i really enjoyed the narration which is acted rather than read.
Highly recommended.

I love Michael Maloney's acting, but his reading is too histrionic for audio books. I was gripped by the story, but couldn't stay with it because of the reading. Shame.
