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

Reviews

From the first page . . . the reader is back in the moody, brooding atmosphere of Rebecca
NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
She wrote exciting plots, she was highly skilled at arousing suspense, and she was, too, a writer of fearless originality
Guardian
Du Maurier is a storyteller whose sole aim is to bewitch and beguile. And in My Cousin Rachel she does both, with Rebecca looking fondly over her shoulder
New York Times
In the same category as REBECCA, but an even more consummate piece of storytelling
GUARDIAN
No other popular writer has so triumphantly defied classification . . . She satisfied all the questionable criteria of popular fiction, and yet satisfied the exacting requirements of "real literature", something very few novelists ever do
Margaret Forster
From the first page . . . the reader is back in the moody, brooding atmosphere of Rebecca
