Review : Frenchman's Creek

Frenchman's Creek by Daphne Du Maurier

Daphne Du Maurier is a true spinner of tales. She expertly weaves romance and mystery into a thought-provoking story. Frenchman's Creek is no exception. The tale of Dona St Columb entrances the reader from the beginning and makes one consider the state of her own life. I heartily recommend Frenchman's Creek to anyone who appreciates romance, mystery or the gothic novel. One of my favorite books is Du Maurier's Rebecca, and Frenchman's Creek does not disappoint. It solidifies my love of Daphne Du Maurier. I praise Sourcebooks for bringing her work to a new generation of readers.
