Joanne Sheppard You're not supposed to know - the idea is that you make up your own mind. I think the important thing is to remember through whose eyes we're viewing Rachel, and what his mental state might be.

Rebecca Morales I don't think she did, it's made very clear that Ambrose hates women and has taught Phillip to do the same. I think Rachel is viewed through the misogynistic paranoia of men during this time period. She is initially charming to these men and seems to crack their previously held beliefs about women but as soon as she begins to show any kind of fault, their perfect "lady" cracks and they begin to question and suspect her of all kinds of horrors.

MMF You said it yourself – the book leaves this question unanswered. Even Philip says in the beginning that he does not know for sure.

Use the evidence presented to draw your own conclusions.

Alice Seidel Yes she most certainly did. Very clever of our cousin Rachel!
Jo Fryer Of course she did.
Willie Krischke What would be her motivation? She already has the estate. Phillip is paranoid and misogynistic. Nothing more or less.
