With all the mastery of atmosphere she used so triumphantly in Rebecca, Daphne du Maurier spirits the reader away to the days of the Restoration. Bored with the frivolous life of the Court the captivating, imperious Dona St Columb retires on a whim to her country estate in Cornwall, taking her children but leaving her dull husband in town. How she comes to be involved with a French philosopher-pirate, the terror of the Cornish coast, makes - because the author makes it credible - an absorbing tale of love and adventure.Hide synopsis

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 ...
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.
