Her mother's dying request obliges Mary Yellan to make a grim journey across bleak Cornish moorland to Jamaica Inn, the home of her Aunt Patience and her overbearing husband, Joss Merlyn.

With the coachman's warning echoing in her mind and affected by the inn's brooding power, Mary is thwarted in her intention to help her aunt. She finds herself drawn unwillingly into the misdeeds of Joss and his accomplices, and even more disturbing are her feelings for a man she dare not trust . . .

Jamaica Inn is a dark and gripping gothic tale that will remind readers of two other great classics, Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights.

“I shouldn't compare it to Rebecca but...”

I was expecting to love this book; I loved Rebecca, it's set by the coast, it's dark and intense, it involves smuggling. But it fell short and I think the main reasons for this were the irritating... More

“Unputdownable”

I read this in two days. Loved it.

An original and relevant book to those a fan of Cornwall based literature (like Poledark or Demelza). As myself live in the South West- why not try reading something a little... More

“Surprisingly fresh”
