Product description

Review

'A tantalising literary mystery... Effortlessly overlaying today's London, Yorkshire and Cornwall with their 1950s incarnations, this novel draws you in to its fraught but passionate world as thoroughly as one of Daphne's own.' -- The Financial Times

'Blurring fact and fiction, this is brave and compelling storytelling.' -- Woman and Home

'Daphne is a compulsively readable novel. It merges fact and fiction, the present and the past, in a near-flawless construct that weaves together Brontë and du Maurier fiction and family history -- colliding in Daphne's writing of her biography of Branwell Brontë.'
-- The Spectator

'Justine Picardie has written an absorbing book, a hybrid work of truth, conjecture, fact and fiction, and a story of insight and intelligence.' -- Times Literary Supplement

'Last night I dreamed of Branwell B again...' Daphne du Maurier's passionate interest in the life of the Bronte brother is at the heart of Justine Picardie's gripping novel, Daphne.' -- Sunday Telegraph

'Picardie's clever and original novel presents...an argument for a reassessment of du Maurier's literary quality.' -- Evening Standard

'Skillfully weaving her recreation of du Maurier's life with a beguiling present-day tale, Picardie's novel has as many twists as one of her heroine's own.' -- Red

'Switching between past and present, the novel explores the lives of Daphne du Maurier, author of Rebecca, and the young woman writing a thesis about her in present-day London. A woman who just happens to be married to an older man who is obsessed with his first wife...' -- Eve

'This glorious novel... is a divine treat for lovers of literary mysteries.'
-- The Times

`This literary mystery is a dizzying mixture of fiction and fact ... A compelling character study of Daphne du Maurier' -- Daily Telegraph
