♥ Book Title : Daphne Du Maurier at Home
☯ Full Synopsis : "Daphne du Maurier (1907-89) is the author of Rebecca, Jamaica Inn, Frenchman's Creek, Don't Look Now and The Birds among many others which continue to thrill and fascinate readers worldwide. The daughter of Sir Gerald du Maurier, the leading actor manager of his day, she grew up in a wildly imaginative 'Peter Pan' world peopled by London's leading writers and actors, before arriving in Cornwall at the age of 19. The place and its people inspired her to write her first novel The Loving Spirit, a work which so affected a young major in the Grenadier Guards, later Lieutenant-General Sir Frederick Browning, that he travelled to Fowey in his boat Ygdrasil to meet - and eventually to marry - the author. This bewitching evocation of place was to remain a feature of Daphne du Maurier's writing, and the source of much of her enduring popularity. Hilary Macaskill explores the homes and landscapes of Daphne du Maurier's life, and how these relate to her work in sometimes unexpected ways. Generously illustrated with little-seen material from the family archive as well as new colour photographs, this is a book which will enrich and transport anyone who has ever lost themselves between the covers of a Daphne du Maurier novel."Article| Hilary Macaskill| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : The House on the Strand
☯ Full Synopsis : "In this haunting tale, Daphne du Maurier takes a fresh approach to time travel. A secret experimental concoction, once imbibed, allows you to return to the fourteenth century. There is only one catch: if you happen to touch anyone while traveling in the past you will be thrust instantaneously to the present. Magnus Lane, a University of London chemical researcher, asks his friend Richard Young and Young's family to stay at Kilmarth, an ancient house set in the wilds near the Cornish coast. Here, Richard drinks a potion created by Magnus and finds himself at the same spot where he was moments earlier--though it is now the fourteenth century. The effects of the drink wear off after several hours, but it is wildly addictive, and Richard cannot resist traveling back and forth in time. Gradually growing more involved in the lives of the early Cornish manor lords and their ladies, he finds the presence of his wife and stepsons a hindrance to his new-found experience. Richard eventually finds emotional refuge with a beautiful woman of the past trapped in a loveless marriage, but when he attempts to intervene on her behalf the results are brutally terrifying for the present. Echoing the great fantastic stories of H. P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe, The House on the Strand is a masterful yarn of history, romance, horror, and suspense that will grip the reader until the last surprising twist."Article| Daphne du Maurier| Statement ..."
