This is my third book by Daphne du Maurier and yet again it was a delightful read!
When Mary Yellan after her mother's death comes to stay with her aunt Patience at Jamaica Inn, she is shocked see her ‘once cheerful’ aunt now terrified & lifeless but Mary is curious and determined to find out the truth about her aunt’s behaviour and about the strange place where no visiter comes to stay.
I loved Mary’s character she seemed very real to me she was simple, innocent yet strong-willed at the same time. She knew what she wanted from her life and what she would get. Although the story was predictable at times but it really never bothered me because of the writing.
Daphne’s writing brings the whole dark, spooky place alive. You could feel the chillness in her description and imagine the darkness of Jamaica Inn and that feeling was great! Another thing that i loved about this book is the ending it was clearcut with no loose ends. Looking forward to read more books by her.
