MATINEE BOOK CLUB
This month's thought-provoking fiction selection is Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier. To register for this book club meeting, please call the library’s front desk at 472-6551 x2. As of May 11, the library has two interlibrary loan copies of the book remaining at a lending cost of only $2.00.
"Last night I dreamt I went to Manderly again."
With these words, the reader is ushered into an isolated gray stone mansion on the windswept Cornish coast, as the second Mrs. Maxim de Winter recalls the chilling events that transpired as she began her new life as the young bride of a husband she barely knew. For in every corner of every room were phantoms of a time dead but not forgotten—a past devotedly preserved by the sinister housekeeper, Mrs. Danvers: a suite immaculate and untouched, clothing laid out and ready to be worn, but not by any of the great house's current occupants. With an eerie presentiment of evil tightening her heart, the second Mrs. de Winter walked in the shadow of her mysterious predecessor, determined to uncover the darkest secrets and shattering truths about Maxim's first wife—the late and hauntingly beautiful Rebecca.
