AudioFile Review


In this dark psychological novel of love, secrets and betrayal, a young, naïve woman marries the dashing Maxim de Winter and returns to his legendary estate at Manderley. There she must confront not only her own insecurities, but also the disturbing memory of Rebecca, the first Mrs. de Winter. Anna Massey, an experienced British actress, reads smoothly, capturing the innocence and passion of the young narrator. She does a fine job shifting among the characters, changing voices enough to distinguish one from another, even the male characters. P.B.J. SYNC 2015 © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine
