BOOK EXCERPT:

Shrubs of broom grow black and twisted As if by Devil's fingers And the wind that never ceases, Like a chorus from the dead. Those who lived here it's for certain, would grow dark and tortured too' In Jamaica Inn, at the heart of the bleak Bodmin Moor, young Mary Yellen soon discovers mysterious goings-on in the dead of night. But worse is yet to come as Mary finds herself helplessly ensnared in the deadly activities taking place around her. Evocative, atmospheric and chilling, this new adaptation of Jamaica Inn has all the hallmarks of a great adventure classic — murder, mystery and malevolence. Jamaica Inn was produced at the Salisbury Playhouse in May 2004 and was followed by a UK tour.

BOOK EXCERPT:

When Mary Yellan, a farmer's daughter from Helford, obeyed her mother's dying wish and went to live with her aunt near Bodmin, she had no idea that her attractive, laughing relative was married to the landlord of Jamaica Inn, miles from anywhere on Bodmin Moor. As the coachman warned her: 'Respectable folk don't go to Jamaica any more'. And as her evil giant of an uncle soon told her, after a few glasses of brandy: 'I'm not drunk enough to tell you why I live in this God forgotten spot, and why I'm the landlord of Jamaica Inn.' In her first famous novel Daphne du Maurier transferred the world of the Bronte's to Cornwall in the early nineteenth century. In the dark events along the Cornish coast, in the ugly brutality of Joss Merlyn, and in the enigmatic character of his brother Jem, the reader gets an exciting foretaste of her next novel, Rebecca.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The two-and-a-half centuries after 1066 were momentous ones in the history of Britain. In 1066 England was conquered for the last time. The Anglo-Saxon ruling class was destroyed and the English became a subject race dominated by a Norman-French dynasty and aristocracy. This book shows how the English domination of the kingdom was by no means a foregone conclusion.
