Jamaica Inn

In the bitter November wind, Mary Yellan crosses Bodmin Moor to Jamaica Inn. Her mother´s dying wish was that she take refuge there, with her Aunt Patience. But when Mary arrives, the warning of the coachman echoes in her mind: Jamaica Inn has a desolate power, and behind it´s crumbling walls Patience is a changed woman, cowering before her brooding, violent husband. When Mary discovers the inn´s dark secrets, the truth is more terrifying than anything she could possibly imagine, and she is forced to collude in her uncle´s murderous schemes. Against her will, she finds herself powerfully attracted to her uncle´s brother, a man she dares not trust.
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.
