Daphne is a marvelous story of literary fascination and possession; of stolen manuscripts and forged signatures; of love lost, and love found; of the way into imaginary worlds, and the way out again. The book is written in three entwined parts, which follow Daphne du Maurier herself, the beautiful, tomboyish, passionate author of the enormously popular Gothic novel Rebecca; John Alexander Symington, eminent editor and curator of the Brontes manuscripts, who by 1957 had been dismissed from the Bronte Parsonage Museum in disgrace after being accused of stealing and forging Bronte manuscripts and who became Daphnes correspondent; and a nameless modern researcher on the trail of Daphne, Rebecca, Alexander Symington, and the Brontes.
