wonderful adventure

by MTWDRW on Jun 23, 2011

If you are new to Du Maurier this is a grand book, fast paced Regency with out the perfect period flourish and detail of Georgette Heyer, the best of the Regency authors. Having read all Heyer, and all Winston Grahame (Poldark series & other Cornwall novels), I came to Du Maurier. Her craft is superb, and her knowledge of the human heart. Couldn't put this one down and immediately posted it on cousin who has read most Du Maurier but not this. So! what is it about: A French aristo pirate, a bored English wife of the gentry who removes from London life to her husband's estate in Cornwall. Where she is content, free and glad once again to be alive. Then she stumbles upon the ship anchored in a side creek of a tidal river. There the adventure begins with her new found friend, the poetry reading, bird sketching robin hood of a pirate. Wonderful fluff yet erudite and delightful. Highly recommended.

True to form Daphne Du Maurier held me once again spellbound in her story telling. This was an excellant novel taking place once again around the area of England that is very familiar to me. I now have seven of her books and still collecting, Her books never fail to please.
