I read it quite recently and thought it was a wonderful novel. I look forward to hearing others' opinions.

I remember this book very fondly. After I read "Rebecca" I read as many other Du Maurier books as I could find.


I'm sorry I've not read along for several of the past books you've chosen. I read this years ago and loved it and would enjoy reading it again, so hopefully will be able to join in in May. I see on your sidebar you are reading the new Joanne Harris novel--can't wait to hear what you think of it, and am also happy to see a new Babara Trapido! I'll dig out my copy of My Cousin Rachel very soon!

Goodness me, I've actually read this book (a first for CBG and me) and within living memory too! I will now have the very unusual experience of re-reading a novel within about 12 months of my very first encounter.


I would love to join in. I read My Cousin Rachel a couple years ago and would enjoy a reread as well as hearing what others think of it. Now I have to go find my copy!


Excellent, Jaimie!

Oooh I will be joining in for this one, yes, yes, yes. Well i hope I will be able too if am about on the date. I think I am though, hoorah!

Susan in TX

Yea! I got this for Christmas and haven't read it yet. I'm looking forward to reading along with ya'll.

My Real Life book group did My Cousin Rachel maybe 18 months ago, and I was quite impressed. I thought it was the cleverest character I'd read in a long time... but won't give any more away, lest I spoil the book!


Great - It's a wonderful book. Also the 1st time I've read the CBG book beforehand. Actually I've read it several times, over many years. I have found du Maurier's books readable, clever and memorable. Another read of this book will be a joy. Thank yoohoo!

claire (kiss a cloud)

I'll be joining in if I get hold of a copy in time. I'd love to read this. :)


I would love to join in with this one too. I have just found this book group and it seems really great and I am looking forward to reading the book.


Great, Alison - welcome!


What a coincidence! I'm reading this right now after just having enjoyed The House on the Strand. Lyn at I Prefer Reading just told me that this is your book club choice for May. Perfect! I can finally join one of your group reads.


Good, Mrs. B!
