In this contemporary spin on classic Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier, Cockram misses the mark in her attempt to create an ominous story with a gothic flair. I was hoping for a creepy read with all the elements of an eerie tale. Instead, we get a formulaic reproduction with weak characters that don't hide anything dark or grim. I did appreciate her characterization of three interesting kids and their stories within an otherwise lackluster novel.
