A not good "lady's companion", so self-effacing that we are never given her name (Joan Fontaine), suddenly finds her life changed when a moody widower, Maxim de Winter (Laurence Olivier), proposes to marry her and take her to his splendid estate of Manderley. It seems like a fairy-tale turned true, but it is not. On reaching Manderley, the fresh Mrs. de Winter (still unnamed) finds herself out of place, as Maxim seems to drift away and the hostile housekeeper Mrs. Danvers (Judith Anderson) repeatedly tells her that she will never live up to the standard set by Maxim's first wife Rebecca. What was Rebecca really like? The excellent English lady, or a hypocrite who dazzled the people around her? Where do Maxim's affections really lie? The questions not only make a amazing film mystery, but a portrait of an unequal marriage between an arrogant aristocrat and a neurotically dependent young wife.
I was more interested in the observations and conflicting emotions of our main hero while dealing with the camps and the other German officers, than the actual romance that the story was wrapped around; however, I enjoyed the character's drive that was a effect of that passion, as well as the family involved.I read this because I love historical romance, but for private reasons, the fact that it was during the holocaust was also a draw for me. It's nice to hope that there may have been at least an ounce of compassion during that is is a time we would all like to forget, but we all need to remember so that it never happens again.
This is the second of Dempsey’s books I have read and I wasn’t disappointed. He has told the tale of a couple from the Isle of Jersey being swept up by the Nazi machine. The tale runs from before the occupation of Jersey until the mid-fifties. I won’t spoil the journey so you’ll have to read it. Having visited Jersey twice, including the Nazi caves, and lived in Germany in the eighties I found it simple to relate to the story, Nazi horrors not withstanding. The book is so well written that I doubt that background is important to thoroughly devour and have fun the book. Test it, you’ll like it!

The vivid stories about the concentration camps of Globe Battle II create you question the acts of human beings. How a society became brainwashed into thinking killing a race would be better for the globe is mind boggling. A beautifully written love story that takes put during those years. A amazing read.
I was reading this on Holocaust Remembrance Day here in Israel. This book was so gripping in its realism!As I was reading the book, I took a break to create lunch for my husband and me.I was so taken up in the story, I had a hard time realizing I could create anything I wanted for en to be reading about Aushwitz and hearing the Israeli Air Force fly over protecting us here in Israel-Rebecca was involved in bringing the beginning of that to e souls in the camps, and then the souls in the DP camps didn't have anywhere to go at that time.G-d willing, such inhumanity will not happen again. But if it does, Jews have a put to go,Let me also mention that people who were suffering from political genocide in Sudan and Etrirea literally walked to Israelwhere they were taken in.Of course the main point of the story was that a person could be so transformed by their love for someone that their love wasgiven to save others. Thank G-d for such people who endangered not only themselves but their families to be real to themselvesso that others were saved. I don't know if this is a real story, but we heard the real stories of people who opened their homes to save Jewish children, in spite of the political danger to them and their families. Yad Vashem does have the Garden of the Righteous Gentiles commenorating this heroism where, if this is a real story, Christopher certainly belonged to be honored there!
FINDING REBECCA held me captive from begin to [email protected]#$%!&?ruly had a hard time putting this book down. Starting from Christopher and Rebecca’s love story to Christopher’s find for Rebecca and the finale in Fresh York, this book held me e story starts as we are introduced to Christopher. He is a fresh officer in charge of taking care of all the that is taken from the victims of the gas chambers in Auschwitz. Right away we know that he is different. We are not left wondering as the backstory kicks in to tell us why he is different. We’re taken back to the island of Jersey in the year 1924 where we see Christopher as a 6 year old. This is where he meets Rebecca, the girl who will change his e story then tells of their lives as they grew up. When Rebecca is taken to a concentration camp, I found myself with tears in my eyes. Christopher joins the German troops to test and search Rebecca. We obtain to see the day-to-day living in the most horrible put on earth at that time. Christopher tries to hide his intentions while doing all he can to search Rebecca. He also finds that since the amount of he delivers to the Nazis is so great, he is able to take some to support him in finding Rebecca as well as doing what he can for the other prisoners. The ending of the story is set in Fresh York and is quite is was a fabulous book. It’s simple to read and the pages will fly by. You may just learn a large amount about what happened on the island of Jersey, in Auschwitz and beyond, during the war. The historical element of this novel is quite fascinating and on point. I highly recommend this book.
This book feels like it was written by two various authors. The beginning of the book has very stilted conversation that sounds like a middle school child's writing.(Believe me, I know, I taught middle school English) I almost place it aside. So satisfied I didn't!. After an awkward beginning the writing and the story are very, very good. The experiences of people in the Channel Islands during WW II is not known to a lot of people outside of Britain. The love story is wonderful.l I highly recommend it. If the author reworked the first part of the book I'd give it five stars.
It's difficult to describe my feelings about this book! Other than I found pure joy reading it. There is so much info depicted; suspense, murder, mystery, love, heroism and most of all a historical insight to a very dark time in our society! Kudos to the author who did an perfect job with this read. It created me wish to discover history a bit more and gave me a fresh perspective on the Jewish community.Excellent and well written!!! Amazing love story too!I strongly recommend high schools/colleges use this book as a tool in their history classes. I think it would spark more interest and jumpstart ones need to better understand history. It would create our globe a better place, if we were more knowledgeable. Maybe we'd understand the importance of voting and taking an active role in "society" as a whole would improve.
Perfect fictional acc of love and atrocity, devastation and hope. Being a young male citizen of Germany following Globe Battle I and through Globe Battle II had to have had its challenges. For a man such as Christopher, the best mate of a young Jewish woman, the experience is less than pleasant as he transitions from a peaceful life in Jersey to the life of a rising young SS officer stationed at ter being forced to part from Rebecca, the woman he wanted to marry, Christopher is determined to search her and support her in any method he can. His experience and emotions are portrayed in the novel as he learns that the resettlement camps are actually Jewish extermination sites--and he is an integral part of the extermination process. With powerful abhorrence for the work, Christopher's initial determination to search Rebecca evolves into a determination to support as a lot of prisoners, particularly children, survive as possible. He develops plans that appear to serve Hitler, but which results actually justify a little portion of leniency to the prisoners--including stopping the everyday summary executions of workers in front of their peers for trumped-up charges, trying to secretly save a young girl who manages to live through the gas chambers (my only criticism would be the failure to describe how the restroom necessity for the young girl is addressed), developing amazing relationships with those German officials that can support him with illicit dealings, bribing other officers for info even as he ostensibly starts an anti-corruption campaign. As he learns of Rebecca's fate, he becomes more determined to support where he can, determining that if he were caught, he would be executed--but it was better to lose his life and allow others live, particularly when life without Rebecca is worth small in any is book is an perfect novelizaiton of a time when horrific challanges had to be surmounted in to survive, and this story of Christopher and Rebecca provides an perfect acc of the historic tragedy. It provides an overview of history's timeline, and it is a amazing introduction to the holocaust for those who have yet to fully comprehend its implications. While the horrors are not something kids should read without first gaining some knowledge of life's horrible realities, the book cannot be recommended highly enough for mature readers.
Like a previous reviewer who found the premise of the story somewhat unbelieveable...that Christopher, in his find for Rebecca, could search himself an S.S. officer and conveniently assigned to the Auschwitz-Birkenau camps as he attempts to create contact with his love and save her from Hitler's attempts to erase the Jews from the earth...well, I think the reader has to suspend some belief and just go along with the story the author, Eoin Dempsey, is telling. It is, for the most part, a riveting story, perhaps from a various perspective than some books of the Holocaust we've read previously. I really couldn't stop reading, so anxious was I to search out just what the ending was going to bring. I'm a romantic. I wanted as satisfied an ending as was going to be possible. There are so a lot of stories about the Holocaust...I have another on my nightstand to begin next. I'm off the opinion there can't be too many, as long as the story is told well, for we need frequent reminders of just what was done during WW II. This is Dempsey's first book. I think he can be forgiven for its immediate shortcomings as he tells a tale of love and horror and redemption. You won't be disappointed in the time you spend with "Finding Rebecca." The book overcomes whatever those shortcomings might be and holds the reader to book's end.
