Publisher's Summary

April 1951. It is twenty years since the death of Rebecca, the beautiful first wife of Maxim de Winter. It is twenty years since the inquest, which famously - and controversially - passed a verdict of suicide. Twenty years since Manderley, the de Winters' ancient family seat, was razed to the ground. But Rebecca's tale is just beginning...
This is Sally Beauman's companion to Daphne du Maurier's classic tale, Rebecca.

Shame about poor quality of recording

An excellent story which does real justice to the original tale and provides interesting possible insights/"what if?"s for readers (both new to the story and long- standing fans). I thoroughly enjoyed the storyline and narration.

My enjoyment of this excellent audiobook was, however, utterly spoilt by the extremely poor, crackly and distorted quality of the recording. I have twenty-year old cassette tape audiobooks which sound significantly better than this recording. It is testament to how brilliant the storyline and narration were that I continued to listen to it and, therefore, feel I can't ask for a refund. That said it is far, far beneath what I would expect from audible and this issue really needs addressing if audible are to continue charging for this item.

A great entertaining listen

Readers don't come any better than Juliet Stevenson and Robert Powell, and this was a great story. Lots of potential pitfalls in writing a book like this but it was far enough away from the original to be novel in its own right and close enough to be an interesting expansion on 'Rebecca' . A great listen.
