"Deftly drawn. An accomplished retelling...The reader need not be a devot#65533;e of Branwell Bront#65533; or Daphne du Maurier or even the Gothic genre to take pleasure in this novel; the butterflies are brightly colored and the display well-lit."-- Washington Post

Folding biographical details of its real-life heroine, Daphne de Maurier, into a page-turning plot, Daphne is a deftly crafted literary mystery: a tale of obsession and possession, of stolen manuscripts and forged signatures, of love lost and love found.

"People are often are often dismissive of librarians and libraries - as if the words are synonymous with boredom and timidity. But isn't that where the best stories are kept? Hidden away on library bookshelves, lost and forgotten, waiting, waiting, until someone like me comes along, and wants to borrow them." ch. 3 pg. 50
