    Hello Laura

    Thank you for this post. It’s been a difficult week for me with some dreaded virus – no no that one! and has given me ample time to watch the movie then read your article from the panel. I was not familiar with either but will clearly HAVE to progress to the novel. How odd that the author with her own production company had so little control over the screenplay but this is not untypical.

    I am also working through some more of her short stories and the Margaret Forster biography.

    Isn’t it exciting when you are at the start of exploring a novelist who is new to you!

    With Best Wishes Paul Gardner

      Thanks for your comment, Paul! Glad you found the article interesting- you must certainly read the book! Hope you get better soon from the virus and in the meantime, enjoy reading Du Maurier! I’d also recommend Tatiana de Rosnay’s 2017 biography, when you’ve finished Margaret Forster. Best wishes, Laura
