Overview

Mary Anne by Daphne du Maurier

The highly anticipated reissue of the du Maurier classics American fans have been waiting for

"Daphne du Maurier has no equal."
Sunday Telegraph

" Likely to rank as the author's best book."
Saturday Review

"This novel catches fire."
New York Times

She set men's hearts on fire and scandalized a country

Master storyteller Daphne du Maurier evokes the rise and fall of one of her most unforgettable characters.

An ambitious, stunning, and seductive young woman, Mary Anne finds the single most rewarding way to rise above her miserable cockney world: she will become the mistress to a royal duke. In doing so, she provokes a scandal that rocks Regency England. Mary Anne glitters with sex, scandal, corruption, and the privileged world of high society.

Based on the true story of one of du Maurier's own distant relatives, Mary Anne's love of money and the men who spend it embroil her in risks that threaten her very existence.
