Publisher's Summary

The nonfiction debut from beloved international sensation and New York Times best-selling author Tatiana de Rosnay: her best-selling biography of novelist Daphne du Maurier.
"It's impressive how Tatiana was able to recreate the personality of my mother, including her sense of humor. It is very well written and very moving. I'm sure my mother would have loved this book." (Tessa Montgomery d'Alamein, daughter of Daphné du Maurier, as told to Pauline Sommelet in Point de Vue)
As a bilingual best-selling novelist with a mixed Franco-British bloodline and a host of eminent forbears, Tatiana de Rosnay is the perfect candidate to write a biography of Daphne du Maurier. As an 11-year-old de Rosnay read and reread Rebecca, becoming a lifelong devotee of Du Maurier's fiction. Now de Rosnay pays homage to the writer who influenced her so deeply, following Du Maurier from a shy seven-year-old to a rebellious 16-year-old, a 20-something newlywed, and finally a cantankerous old lady. With a rhythm and intimacy to its prose characteristic of all de Rosnay's works, Manderley Forever is a vividly compelling portrait and celebration of an intriguing, hugely popular and (at the time) critically underrated writer.

Fascinating story

Loved the book but the narrator has the most awful pronunciation not just if Cornish name places but it took me a while to realise what she meant about many things “subaltern” for example !!! Rather annoying ..

Where does Manderley Forever rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Not as good as hoped. Some of the details were dubious.. For example....not a mention was made of Daphne Du Maurier visiting Cyprus whilst she was staying in Egypt. Some say that is where she wrote "Rebecca"....her most famous novel!

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Oh dear! The pronunciation of some of the words was awful. Words like "interminable" cannot emphasise the "min" surely...? [Interminable].And the pronunciation of the Cornish place names - not great! Quite detracted from the narration overall.HOWEVER - the pronunciation of the French words was great! Credit where it is due....

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I love anything to do with Daphne Du Maurier - so I liked the content but nothing new.

Any additional comments?

A bit disappointed overall.
