I am a big fan of Daphne du Maurier, especially Rebecca, so just had to pick this up and read. This follow-on to Rebecca occurs about 20 years after her death, wrapping stories up, creating more intrigue, and providing back story. I think Beauman did a superb job and I thoroughly enjoyed the book. Her writing style was sufficiently similar to create a good tone to flow from Rebecca. We can all quibble about what should have happened, or what the story should have been, and alternate scenarios are certainly possible, but this is her take on it and it works as well as any other could. Her attention to the original story and it's details plausibly tie up Rebecca very well. ( )

#unreadshelfproject2019. I really had high hopes for this book. I was really disappointed. It went in far to long and many of the characters were overkill. I enjoyed it when I first started it, but the more it progressed, the less interested I became. I though it was going to be a what happened after take that followed along with Rebecca. It was not. I should have realized that Du Maurier probably did not plan a second book and therefore Rebecca should have been left alone. I’ve come to the conclusion that authors should not mess with perfection by trying to write a sequel or prequel to a classic. ( )

I don't know how much I would have enjoyed this book had I not read duMaurier's Rebecca. But, since I did, this book was interesting and it made me re-think many of my impressions of Rebecca. It is a must-read for those who've read Rebecca. ( )

While the style is not, as advertised, very similar to DuMaurier's, this book did raise some interesting questions that I had only recently begun to think about myself. For example, why was there no mention of Rebecca's family besides Favell?


Why was there so much blood if she was shot cleanly through the heart, and how could a shot through the heart not leave a mark on the skeleton?

In this book, Beauman casts doubt on a lot of the veracity of Maxim de Winter's account of his dealings with Rebecca. Less successfully, she tries to build a past for Rebecca that includes acting professionally in a small-time travelling troupe, makes her Maxim's forgotten first cousin, gives her an illegitimate younger brother, and makes Colonel Julyan into Rebeccas' greatest admirer. Worse, she makes her the victim of a childhood rape that has apparently resulted in Rebecca hating all males. It is hinted that she has murdered multiple men and calmly stated that she sleeps with multiple men while married.

Despite all of this, Rebecca is held up as an example to follow for her independence, verve, and freedom of spirit. In the less interesting story that is told to frame Rebecca's story, Colonel Julyan's daughter ends up rejecting an offer of marriage because she is trying to decide, "what would Rebecca do?" While I understand the fascination that Rebecca inspires, seeing people of the fifties choosing Rebecca as a role model just didn't ring true. She sleeps around, lies constantly, and very likely murders people, so let's be like her because she's beautiful and unique? No thanks. Historically, the fact that multiple characters come out of the closet and noone seems to care is pretty unrealistic, a problem I have found in a lot of modern books. Whatever your views today, the fact is that in recent times past people were just not so casual about homosexuality.


Overall, I found this a fun book to read and found some parts of Rebecca's past plausible, but would have to say it is far from anything Daphne du Maurier would have written. It lacks subtlety and atmosphere and is not beautifully written like the original. There will be no lines you will want to write into a quote book, and the story about Colonel Julyan, his daughter, and a young man looking for his connection to Rebecca is ultimately very forgettable. As would be expected, it is Rebecca herself who remains vivid and fascinating, though the reader will probably reject some of her background as silly. This book is worth reading if you are a Rebecca fanatic, so long as you read it with only moderate expectations. ( )

Everyone thinks they know Rebecca's story. But when a mysterious person starts sending Rebecca's notebooks to her old friend, the cracks in the tale begin to show.

I am automatically intrigued by a book that promises a continuation on a story I really enjoyed, and Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier is a great Gothic classic.

Beauman puts an intriguing spin on the mystery behind what truly happened to Rebecca all those years ago, and utilizes some excellent and surprising twists to keep this an intriguing mystery.

The book feels too long. I love a good, epic tale, but Rebecca's Tale felt like it contained too much filler.

I wouldn't say drop everything and read this book, but if you liked Rebecca, I would recommend giving Rebecca's Tale a chance. ( )

We were riding through the frozen fields in a wagon at dawn. A red wing rose in the darkness. And suddenly a hare ran across the road. One of us pointed to it with his hand. That was long ago. Today neither of them is alive. Not the hare, nor the man who made the gesture. O my love, where are they, where are they going The flash of a hand, streak of movement, rustle of pebbles. I ask not out of sorrow, but in wonder.

-"Encounter," Czeslaw Milosz, The Collected Poems, 1931-1987

...They thought death was worth it, but I Have a self to recover, a queen. Is she dead, is she sleeping? Where has she been, With her lion-red body, her wings of glass? Now she is flying. More terrible than she ever was, red Scar in the sky, red comet Over the engine that killed her-The mausoleum, the wax house. -"Stings." Sylvia Plath, Ariel
