Readers of such classics as REBECCA probably have no idea that the author, beloved British writer Daphne Du Maurier, had an eye for the ladies. Drawing from Margaret Forster’s authorized bio, Daphne focuses on the period in Du Maurier’s life when she was on trial in the US for a plagiarism charge and fell in love with heiress Ellen Doubleday. Although rebuffed by the glamourous Ellen, Daphne soon fell in love with actress Gertrude Lawrence, and these two great loves changed her life and her writing.
