Product description

Review

Anyone who has ever felt the need to escape from the cage of daily life will identify with and love this book. -- Lisa Harvey "Book Thoughts By Lisa" (03/27/2009)

The denouement will keep one thinking for a long time after the book has been finished, and would be a great discussion topic for book groups. -- Sharon Goforth "Ex Libris" (04/06/2009)

The story is intriguing and the book is an absolute pleasure to read. I had a lovely time with this, and I think you would too. -- Meghan Kawka "Medieval Bookworm" (04/21/2009)

I really liked "Frenchman's Creek", it reminded me why classics are classics, endured for many generations and will be read by countless others. -- Liliana Swistek "Reading Extravaganza" (05/05/2009)

[A]n entertaining, very well written story... -- CaiteMaire Fitz "A Lovely Shore Breeze" (05/06/2009)

Be careful when you set out to read this novel. Daphne du Maurier will capture your imagination with more stealth, speed, and skill than any of her pirates ever could. -- Jennifer Conner "The Literate Housewife" (05/13/2009)

This is a entertaining read and one I would recommend if you enjoy a classic historical romance. -- Darlene Smoliak "Peeking Between the Pages" (05/14/2009)

Wow, I can certainly tell why Sourcebooks wants to bring back stories like these!... Frenchman's Creek is a most satisfying tale. -- Barbara Ligens "Book Loons" (05/22/2009)

This is excellent and intense storytelling, many thanks to Sourcebooks for re-releasing the novels of this classic author. -- Carey Anderson "The Tome Traveller's Weblog" (05/26/2009)

I heartily recommend Frenchman's Creek to anyone who appreciates romance, mystery or the gothic novel... I praise Sourcebooks for bringing her work to a new generation of readers. -- Tina Baich "Reader for Life" (05/27/2009)

I am just sorry that it has taken me this long to read something by this fantastic author. This will not be the last book I read by her though, that's a guarantee! -- Tracee Gleichner "The Review From Here" (05/29/2009)

It's romantic and scandalous and adventurous. The most pleasant journey I've ever taken with a pirate. -- Corinne Edwards "The Book Nest" (06/02/2009)

[I]t was definitely enjoyable. She has quite a way with words, the language she used was simply beautiful. -- Jen Karbaek "Devourer of Books" (06/02/2009)

Fans of Rafael Sabatini and other romantic period adventures will be quite pleased with this book. -- Tripp Ritter "Books are My Only Friends" (06/02/2009)
