Jamaica Inn by Daphne du Maurier #2016ClassicsChallenge
From Daphne du Maurier—the beloved author of the timeless classic Rebecca—comes this haunting novel of secrets and suspense
The coachman tried to warn young Mary Yellan away from the ruined, forbidding place on the rainswept Cornish coast. But Mary chose instead to honor her mother's dying request that she join her frightened Aunt Patience and foreboding Uncle Joss Merlyn at Jamaica Inn. From her first glimpse on that raw November eve, she could sense the inn's dark power.
Mary never imagined that she would become hopelessly ensnared in the vile, villainous schemes being hatched within its crumbling walls—or that she would fall in love with a handsome, enigmatic stranger. But what secrets is he hiding from her—and can she really trust him?
Jamaica Inn is a riveting, classic novel of romantic suspense only the brilliant mind of Daphne du Maurier could conceive.
WHEN I Discovered This ClassicI discovered and bought Jamaica Inn by Daphne du Maurier last year while I was doing a bit of research on books by Daphne du Maurier.
WHY I Chose to Read ItI first read Rebecca in high school and I loved the Gothic atmosphere of the book. Since then, I've read Rebecca numerous times and have also watched many of the book-to-movie adaptations. I bought this book last year in an attempt to read more books by Daphne du Marurier. This challenge gave me a great opportunity to read it.
