    Summary

    The day would lie before me and Sherlock, long no doubt, and eventful, but fraught with a certain stillness, a dear tranquillity we had not known before. We would not talk of Baskerville, I would not tell my dream. For Baskerville was ours no longer. Baskerville was no more.

     

    John Watson couldn't believe his luck. Dashing widower Sherlock Holmes falls in love with him, they are to be wed, and he to be master of the esteemed hall of Baskerville. When he arrives however, John feels the presence of Sherlock's late husband at every corner, and it soon threatens to destroy them.

    Summary

    This fan fiction is based on the novel, Rebecca (1938), by Daphne Du Maurier, and the film of the same title (1940) directed by Alfred Hitchcock. The novel was apparently THE most popular Gothic romantic thriller novel for women of the 1930’s. I don’t think it has ever gone out of print. The film Rebecca won two Oscars for Best Picture and Cinematography (black and white) and received 9 other nominations. All the lead actors were nominated, Sir Lawrence Olivier, for Best Actor (Maxim de Winter), Joan Fontaine, for Best Actress (2nd Mrs. de Winter) and Dame Judith Anderson, for Best Supporting Actress (Mrs. Danvers).

    Mrs. Danvers, the narrator of this tale who is sharing her memories, is decidedly NOT the heroine of the tale. The heroine of this tale has no name and never had a name. The only name she has is the one bestowed upon her when she became married to the rich widower and owner of the mansion Manderley. So she is known only as the second Mrs. de Winter. Mrs. Danvers will here tell you her story, and explain how she feels about the events that happened after she lost the one, the only, Rebecca.
