Literature & Fiction / Fiction / Rebeccas Tale by Beauman, Sally Beauman, Sally           Amazon.co.uk Review: Sally Beaumans Rebeccas Tale is an ambitious sequel to Daphne du Mauriers much-loved Rebecca, a classic tale of love and death. Beauman dares to tell the story of the enigmatic first mistress of Manderley, and not only proves herself a brave woman, but a storyteller of exceptional style and skill. Written as a companion rather than a sequel, the author succeeds in breathing life into the long-dead bones of the magnificent Rebecca and has furnished us with an alternative version of the events that would ultimately lead to her tragic death and the destruction of her beloved home. : : The book opens on April 12, 1951, the 20th anniversary of Rebeccas death. Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again, writes Colonel Julyan, an old family friend of the de Winters. As old age and ill health threaten to overtake him, 20 years of doubt about the true cause of Rebeccas death are sharply reawakened with the arrival of an anonymous parcel containing a small black notebook entitled Rebeccas Tale. Meanwhile, a mysterious stranger, recently arrived in the locality, appears equally determined to find answers to the string of inconsistencies raised by Rebeccas life and death. The Colonel and his dutiful daughter Ellie are both drawn to the handsome, intelligent Terence Grey but both are wary and wonder if he really is what he appears to be. : : As the plot twists and turns, the revelations are both shocking and inevitable. Favourite characters--spooky Mrs Danvers and Jack Favell, Rebeccas reckless cousin-Ħdrift in and out. This is a big book (495 pages), yet, once begun, most will find it difficult to put downĦ-just as well for there are so many complexities it doesnt do to take your time. Ultimately, Rebeccas Tale offers its own version of events, yet for du Maurier fans, it is reassuring in that it raises many more. And, cleverly, Beauman has added her own, somehow more relevant sub-plot. Perhaps the truth about Rebeccas life is only as important as the legacy she left those whose lives she touched. What they choose to do with it, and how they choose to live their lives, is the central issue here. This novel will appeal to anyone who has ever read Rebecca and, thanks to her finely woven plot and subtle undercurrents of hope and inspiration, it will appeal just as much to those who have not. --Carey Green : : ELAINE SHOWALTER: Compelling, absorbing, captivating, haunting Sally Beaumans most ambitious and imaginative book so farComments: pristine- as new - immediate dispatch
