The King's General
The King's General | Daphne Du Maurier
3 posts | 9 read | 8 to read
"Daphne du Maurier is a magician, a virtuoso. She can conjure up tragedy, tension, suspense, the ridiculous, the vain, the romantic." --Good Housekeeping Honor Harris is only eighteen when she first meets Richard Grenvile, proud, reckless - and utterly captivating. But following a riding accident, Honor must reconcile herself to a life alone. As the English Civil war is waged across the country, Richard rises through the ranks of the army, marries and makes enemies, and Honor remains true to him. Decades later, an undaunted Sir Richard, now a general serving King Charles I, finds her. Finally they can share their passion in the ruins of her family's great estate on the storm-tossed Cornish coast-one last time before being torn apart, never to embrace again.

I enjoyed this mainly because Du Maurier‘s writing is so lovely. I would have liked it more if it hadn‘t been so long.

Received this beauty in the mail today. I placed a book depository order in the moment I saw this on a booktuber from the UK's video where she discussed this. Rebecca is all I have read by Daphne Du Maurier and I for sure want to fix that.

Re-reading one of my old favorites for book club (Guess who got to pick this time?!). Forgot how much I love the writing and the strong Heroine. Having a great time!
