"From the very first moment of Rebecca ("Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again"), readers were immersed in the claustrophobic world of Maxim de Winter, his innocent child bride, and the memory of the malevolent beauty, Rebecca. At the end of Rebecca, Manderley is burning and Maxim and Mrs. de Winter are on their way to the Continent to try to build a quiet, safe life for themselves away from the passionate, violent excesses that nearly destroyed their souls. But could this be possible? Could the de Winters escape or did they ever return home to England to confront the past?
