This gothic novel by Dame Daphne du Maurier (1938) tells the story of a young woman who marries the reserved Max de Winter and her jealousy for his previous wife, Rebecca, who had died in a boating accident. The housekeeper, Mrs Danvers, undermines the marriage and the story climaxes at the annual costume ball at their home Manderley, when a storm reveals the wreck of Rebecca’s sailing boat. This gives rise to suspicion over the cause of her death.
