On the trusted recommendation of Sunday (go say hi to her at Ciao Domenica), I ran off to my library to pick up Daphne du Maurier at Home. What better book to read considering I’d just finished both Jamaica Inn and The King’s General? Well, I loved Daphne du Maurier at Home. I read it cover-to-cover, which isn’t something I normally do with coffee-table books. I could very much relate to Daphne du Maurier’s love of houses and her sensitivity to the soul of buildings. That’s something I definitely feel, as well. I think it’s important to be the custodian of a house’s spirit! On top of the interesting read, the photos are great. Even if you don’t have much interest in Daphne du Maurier, you might enjoy the sheer volume of interior and exterior shots of country houses and seaside retreats. However, if you are a du Maurier fan, you’ll love reading about all the inspiration for her books, especially those set in her beloved Cornwall.
