My Cousin Rachel. Film Tie-In

Film Tie In

'As mysterious and enthralling as du Maurier's other great novel, Rebecca . . . A masterpiece of tension' Guardian

Orphaned at an early age, Philip Ashley is raised by his cousin, Ambrose. Resolutely single, Ambrose delights in making Philip his heir, knowing that he will treasure his beautiful Cornish estate. But Philip's world is shattered when Ambrose sets off on a trip to Florence. There he falls in love and marries - and then dies suddenly in suspicious circumstances.

Before long, the new widow - Philip's cousin Rachel - arrives in England. Despite himself, Philip is drawn to the beautiful, mysterious woman. But could she have caused Ambrose's death?

This special edition includes a foreword by the director and screenwriter of the film, Roger Michell

'Du Maurier is a storyteller whose sole aim is to bewitch and beguile. And in My Cousin Rachel she does both, with Rebecca looking fondly over her shoulder' New York Times

'A fiendishly clever novel, with an ending that continues to haunt and trouble its readers' Justine Picardie, Daily Telegraph

Portrait
Daphne du Maurier (1907-89) was born in London, the daughter of the famous actor-manager Sir Gerald du Maurier and granddaughter of George du Maurier, the author and artist. In 1931 her first novel, The Loving Spirit, was published. A biography of her father and three other novels followed, but it was the novel Rebecca that launched her into the literary stratosphere and made her one of the most popular authors of her day. In 1932, du Maurier married Major Frederick Browning, with whom she had three children.Many of du Maurier's bestselling novels and short stories were adapted into award-winning films, including Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds and Nicolas Roeg's Don't Look Now. In 1969 du Maurier was awarded a DBE. She lived most of her life in Cornwall, the setting for many of her books.
