Daphne du Maurier born 1907

Daphne du Maurier,  born May 13, 1907 in Cornwall, England, gave us some unforgettable novels of romance and suspense.  Among her best known are Rebecca and The Birds, both made into movies by Alfred Hitchcock.  Although she is reagarded as a romance novelist (which she did NOT like), her stories seldom had the "happily ever after" ending and were usually more somber.

She passed away in Cornwall her birth place, April 15, 1989.
