Another classic from the author of Rebecca and The House on the Strand

On a bitter November evening, young Mary Yellan journeys across the rainswept moors on the Cornish coast to Jamaica Inn to honor her mother’s dying request. When she arrives, the warning of the coachman begins to echo in her memory, for her aunt Patience cowers before hulking Uncle Joss Merlyn. Terrified of the inn’s brooding power, Mary gradually finds herself ensnared in the dark schemes being enacted behind its crumbling walls—and tempted to love a man she dares not trust.

    " I would have given this novel 3.5 stars for the writing itself: wonderful imagery. But the book was much too "romancy" for my taste. "

    " After her mother's death, Mary Yellin goes to Jamaica Inn on the wild English moors. Her Uncle Josh and Aunt Patience Merlin are the proprieters of Jamaica Inn. Mary learns that no one stays at the Inn, but on certain nights there are strange comings and goings of very questionable men. This is a true gothic novel full of dark and mysterious happenings. I listened to this on CD and the reader was excellent. His portrayal of Josh Merlin was truly bone chilling. This is one of my least favorite Daphne du Maurier novels, but it is still well crafted.

About the Author
Author Daphne du Maurier

Daphne du Maurier (1907-1989) was born in London, the daughter of the actor Sir Gerald du Maurier and granddaughter of the author and artist George du Maurier. She has been called one of the great shapers of popular culture and the modern imagination. She began writing in 1928, and many of her bestselling novels were set in Cornwall, where she lived for most of her life. Besides novels, du Maurier wrote plays, biographies, and several collections of short fiction. Among her more famous works are The Scapegoat, Jamaica Inn, Rebecca, and the short story “The Birds,” all of which were subsequently made into films, the latter three directed by Alfred Hitchcock.
