(From the publisher):
"You certainly won't find happiness....You'll never live her down even if you kill yourself trying." So says her employer to the protagonist of this spellbinding novel which echoes Daphne Du Maurier's classic, Rebecca
. Her future husband is the renowned writer and infamous widower, Max Midwinter, whose first wife, Rebecca, is a haunting presence in her life. The protagonist's apprehension is intensified by the painfully accurate portrait of her new home which Rebecca had drawn in her autobiographical novel, The Marriage Hearse
. Worst of all, the characters Rebecca portrays are real and the new wife must deal with them in the flesh. Meanwhile, a new biography of Max is released which strongly implicates him in Rebecca's death. All of which magnifies his new wife's apprehension that she may be drawn inexorably into another woman's life.
