Jamaica Inn by Daphne du Maurier

Original Title: Jamaica Inn

"A fine romantic tale...rich in suspense and surprise." --New York Times Book Review On a bitter November evening, young Mary Yellan journeys across the rainswept moors to Jamaica Inn in honor of her mother's dying request. When she arrives, the warning of the coachman begins to echo in her memory, for her aunt Patience cowers before hulking Uncle Joss Merlyn. Terrified of the inn's brooding power, Mary gradually finds herself ensnared in the dark schemes being enacted behind its crumbling walls -- and tempted to love a man she dares not trust.

Daphne Du Maurier Omnibus 3 by Daphne Du Maurier

Original Title: Daphne Du Maurier Omnibus 3

Includes Jamaica Inn, The Flight of the Falcon, The King's General, The Glass Blowers, Mary Anne, and The Breaking Point & Other Stories. Jamaica Inn weaves a tale of mystery at the eponymous inn on Cornwall's bleak moorlands. The Flight of the Falcon is set in the Italian town of Ruffano: in the 20th century the town has nearly forgotten its violent history, but is it still stained by its dark past? Set in the 17th century at Menabilly in Cornwall, The King's General is the story of a country and a family riven by war. The French Revolution is the backdrop to The Glass Blowers, a tale of family tragedy. Mary Anne is a vivid portrait of one woman's ambition as she rises from ordinary beginnings to become an influential royal mistress to the Duke of York.
