it was amazing
Recommended to Christine by: I read everything by Daphne DuMaurier
Recommended for: people who enjoy romantic historical novels
Read in January, 1982 , read count: at least 4 times

Probably the best of all DuMaurier novels.
Lady Donna lives a privileged life at the coast of Cornwall, her husband is in London. Then a French pirate anchors in Frenchman's Creek not far from her home...
Try to catch the movie with Anthony Delon based on this book at Netflix! It's worth watching.
There is an old movie version from the forties (with Joan Fontaine) which is lovely as well!

I'm a big DuMaurier fan. Actually "Frenchman's Creek" is my favorite.

DuMaurier got inspired to write "Frenchman's Creek" when her husband took her on their honeymoon to Helford River, the location of Frenchman's Creek. I was lucky to find the location of Navron House and it's even allowed to cross the property in order to walk down to Frenchman's Creek.
