Another reviewer was disappointed by the ending, but when listening to that climactic scene in which an unexpected twist reveals a second, deeper meaning, I found myself in tears of wonder, joy, and sorrow. I've rarely experienced a more satisfying ending to a story.

I read Daphne Du Maurier's My Cousin Rachel and loved it, so I picked up both Rebecca and The House on the Strand right away. I love this one too! And honestly, the whole time travel aspect was not something I was looking forward to as I am not a fan of science fiction. However this book is intricate and complex and unique. It is partly historical fiction, partly mystery. The characters inspire empathy; they are sometimes likable and often detestable. They are flawed and very real.
But my favorite part of Du Maurier's books are the endings. In both of the books I have read so far she leaves the ending mysterious. The reader is left with questions and wanting to know more. Even the author herself, in later interviews, seems to question exactly what happened next for her characters. It is a lovely cliff-hanger that makes you want to read more by and about the author!
Ron Keith is new to me, but I liked his narration very much. I believed him as Dick Young.
