I have just finished this book.The characters were well developed and the air of mystery pervaded the pages.By not naming the second wife who is the narrator of the story, adds to the mystery. This character is very timid and submissive but as the story develops she appears strong and protective.
The book breezed along beautifully for me, but the last few pages were a disappointment. Perhaps the ending was to signify the end of all their troubles or maybe the beginning, as the truth of the crime was not revealed.
As the story draws to a close, another book is discussed, 'Rebecca's Tale' by Sally Beauman. This book follows on from 'Rebecca' twenty years after the original was set.I liked the few pages regarding this book and will read it one day, it's added to my TBR list.
