In the bitter November wind, Mary Yellan crosses Bodmin Moor to Jamaica Inn. Her mother's dying wish was that she take refuge there, with her Aunt Patience. But when Mary arrives, the warning of the coachman echoes in her mind: Jamaica Inn has a desolate power, and behind it's crumbling walls Patience is a changed woman, cowering before her brooding, violent husband. When Mary discovers the inn's dark secrets, the truth is more terrifying than anything she could possibly imagine, and she is forced to collude in her uncle's murderous schemes. Against her will, she finds herself powerfully attracted to her uncle's brother, a man she dares not trust.

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”

I bought this having really enjoyed Rebecca. Although it was written over 80 years ago, it is still surprisingly fresh. The plotting is superb and will have you racing through the pages as you try to work out what... More
