My Cousin Rachel

Daphne Du Maurier


ISBN 9780349009858


Orphaned at an early age, Philip Ashley is raised by his benevolent cousin, Ambrose.

Resolutely single, Ambrose delights in making Philip his heir, knowing he will treasure his beautiful Cornish estate. But Philip's world is shattered when Ambrose sets off on a trip to

Florence. There he falls in love and marries - and then dies suddenly in suspicious circumstances.

Before long, the new widow, Philip's cousin Rachel arrives in England. Despite himself,

Philip is drawn to this beautiful, mysterious woman. But could she have caused Ambrose's death?

The Author

daphne du maurier Daphne du Maurier (1907-89) was born in London, the daughter of the famous actor manager Sir Gerald du Maurier and granddaughter of George du Maurier, the author and artist. In 1931 her first novel, The Loving Spirit, was published. A biography of her father and three other novels followed, but it was the novel Rebecca that launched her into the literary stratosphere and made her one of the most popular authors of her day. In 1932, du Maurier married Major Frederick Browning, with whom she had three children.

Many of du Maurier's bestselling novels and short stories were adapted into award-winning films, including Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds and Nicolas Roeg's Don't Look Now. In 1969 du Maurier was awarded a DBE. She lived most of her life in Cornwall, the setting for many of her books.
