Frenchman's Creek by Daphne du Maurier
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Head over to Austenprose for my review of Frenchman's Creek. This classic of romantic historical fiction has been adapted for the screen several times. It has all the elements necessary for a good, ripping yarn. I loved it as a teenager for its excitement and daring-do. A heroine who rebels against society's expectations? Excellent! On re-reading, I found it just as entertaining as I remembered and surprisingly adept at revealing characters' inner conflicts and the ways that they act them out.
