She is such a shrinking violet that she makes it through the entire novel without even having a name - she becomes, simply, 'the new Mrs. de Winter.' Sure, their relationship is fraught with problems from the get-go; in fact, Daphne DuMaurier stacks the cards against her insecure heroine, pitting her against the ghost of Maxim's first wife, the beautiful and incomparable title character of Rebecca. But there is so much love and hope early on in their tale that the reader can't help but hope - and I still hope it, even though I've read this book more times than any other and it always comes out the exact same way - that the two lovers will tell the truth. Be honest. Forgive each other. Forgive Rebecca. Move on with their love and not let the past come back to haunt them. Oh, well. Good luck with that.(less)
