Frenchman’s Creek

by Daphne du Maurier

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

I tried this book when I was younger – & like Jamaica Inn it was a DNF. But I have become such a big fan of Du Maurier’s work & it was one of the books in the Book Pool at Retro Reads, so I thought I would give it another shot.

I couldn’t warm to the character of bored aristocrat, Dona St Columb (view spoiler) & wondered if she was based on Du Maurier herself. She improved by the end of this book, & was certainly very brave. I can’t even remember the name of the French pirate Dona fell in love with – & I only finished the book last night. He didn’t have much personality at all.

There was a lot of fast paced action, some of the more minor characters like the enigmatic William were very well depicted. I enjoyed this book, but I know I will never read it again.
