Set in Cornwall, this is a spell-binding story of the way in which the secrets of the past affect the present. At Treveryan, we enter a house and a landscape familiar to any reader who has dreamed of Manderley.

Fantastic. Angela du Maurier, Daphne du Maurier' sister, didn't get as known as her sister, but this book shows she was just as good as Daphne in writing. With wonderful settings in Cornwall, Angela builds the story of a family who could never dream of happiness. A really fantastic novel.
On loan from my sister Gwyneth, I found it fascinating to read this engaging romantic melodrama from Daphne Du Maurier's sister. The same overblown Cornish-Gothic charm but less nuanced, less ambiguous. Very hard to put down!
