Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

Rebecca is a beautiful and haunting story - part romance, part suspense. It is the story of a young, nameless heroine who, whilst on holiday in the South of France, meets Max, a wealthy, handsome widower. After they marry and return to his home in England she finds him changed completely and the presence of his dead wife overshadows their home.

This is a gripping novel with a dark subtext, featuring a classic heroine in the tradition of Jane Eyre. Her story will captivate you.

The Housekeeper and the Professor by Yoko Ogawa

A delightfully gentle story. I wanted to read it in one go start to finish. Simply written its strength lay in the relationship of the characters. What I took away from this book was a better understanding and respect for math, and a greater awareness of the moment. Will definitely look for more by this author. Enjoy.

My next read will be David Wroblewski's The Story of Edgar Sawtelle.
