I am a huge fan of Daphne Du Maurier, having read "My Cousin Rachel" and "Rebecca". This book was very disappointing. I liked the beginning of the book but it started going downhill about half way though, so I skimmed the rest as I was curious what would happen. I didn't like the main character Mary Anne at all, though I completely understand why she did what she did, as after all, what choices did women of her time have. I think the book could have been shorter. It just dragged on and on and it became a downer. I didn't care what fate awaited her or any of the people in the book. What a difference from "My Cousin Rachel" and "Rebecca" which completely captivated me. This book didn't even seem to be written by Du Maurier.

Too much politcal shenanigans for me

I actually read this book before I read Death Row. It is quite similar to My Cousin Rachael, beautiful, strange woman dominates the world in which they live. It is based on Ms. Du Maurier's grandmother. I would like to know which is true and which is fiction in this book. Quite a good book, but than I am partial to Daphne Du Maruier. I consider her to be a really good author.
