"Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again."
These famous words open the most popular novel by Daphne du Maurier, the story of an intense romance set in a mysterious house in Cornwall. Its unforgettable atmosphere and tension has transformed it from a popular romance on the page and on film to become a modern classic. Here, it is presented in a new and absorbing recording by Emma Fielding.

Narrator Emma Fielding did such a good job with this one. I listened to the unabridged version and wished Emma did that too. Anna Massey is pretty good but Emma is better. Oh, the background music is perfect, not overdone.
"Wonderfully written story and narration"
One of the best!
The Shining, same dark dreamlike atmosphere centered around a main location, in this case, Manderley (which is almost a character in itself).
Subtle and atmospheric, she gets the tone PERFECT.
It brought me in to the main characters world, as if in a fog, beautiful.
Wonderful narrator and a wonderful story.
