FROM THE BESTSELLING WRITER OF REBECCA

‘The House on the Strand is prime du Maurier . . . ‘ NEW YORK TIMES

‘She wrote exciting plots . . . a writer of fearless originality’ GUARDIAN


‘No other popular writer has so triumphantly defied classification . . . ‘ MARGARET FORSTER

When Dick Young’s friend, Professor Magnus Lane offers him an escape from his troubles in the form of a new drug, Dick finds himself transported to fourteenth-century Cornwall. There, in the manor of Tywardreath, the domain of Sir Henry Champerhoune, he witnesses intrigue, adultery and murder.

The more time Dick spends consumed in the past, the more he withdraws from the modern world. With each dose of the drug, his body and mind become addicted to this otherworld and his attempts to change history bring terror to the present and put his own life in jeopardy.

Reviews

The House on the Strand is prime du Maurier ... She holds her characters close to reality; the past she creates is valid, and her skill in finessing the time shifts is enough to make one want to try a little of the brew himself
New York Times
Historical science-fiction with heightened emotional drama, a very Oultander-like novel, if you will
Medium
She wrote exciting plots, she was highly skilled at arousing suspense, and she was, too, a writer of fearless originality
Guardian
No other popular writer has so triumphantly defied classification ... She satisfied all the questionable criteria of popular fiction, and yet satisfied the exacting requirements of "real literature", something very few novelists ever do
