Publisher's Summary

April 1951. It is 20 years since the death of Rebecca, the beautiful first wife of Maxim de Winter. It is 20 years since the inquest, which famously, and controversially, passed a verdict of suicide. Twenty years since Manderley, the de Winders' ancient family seat, was razed to the ground. But Rebecca's tale is just the beginning....
This is Sally Beauman's companion to Daphne du Maurier's classic, Rebecca.

Hooked!

Loved this sequel. I was hooked from the beginning! Also, the author style of writing was beautiful.

Very enjoyable

The fashion for writing sequels, prequels or just cashing in on best selling novels has produced some shockers!! For instance .... Scarlett, the sequel to Gone With The Wind. Margaret Mitchell must have turned in her grave!! Daphne du Maurier, however, need not. Rebecca's Tale takes the reader on a journey using, as background, the familiar story but introduces some very likeable new characters into the modern day account as they try to find the truth ... try to find the "real" Rebecca. I was entranced by this novel, narrated so beautifully by Robert Powell (love the Scottish accent ... and his Jack Favell could have been George Sanders) and Juliet Stevenson. If there is any criticism , it would be that Rebecca's diary to her unborn child perhaps went on a little too long but it did offer revealing insight into her character. For those who love Rebecca, I do not think you will find this book disappointing.

Shame about poor quality of recording

An excellent story which does real justice to the original tale and provides interesting possible insights/"what if?"s for readers (both new to the story and long- standing fans). I thoroughly enjoyed the storyline and narration.

My enjoyment of this excellent audiobook was, however, utterly spoilt by the extremely poor, crackly and distorted quality of the recording. I have twenty-year old cassette tape audiobooks which sound significantly better than this recording. It is testament to how brilliant the storyline and narration were that I continued to listen to it and, therefore, feel I can't ask for a refund. That said it is far, far beneath what I would expect from audible and this issue really needs addressing if audible are to continue charging for this item.

A great entertaining listen

Readers don't come any better than Juliet Stevenson and Robert Powell, and this was a great story. Lots of potential pitfalls in writing a book like this but it was far enough away from the original to be novel in its own right and close enough to be an interesting expansion on 'Rebecca' . A great listen.
