One of Daphne du Maurier's four Cornish novels. Dona, the beautiful, capricious Lady St Columb, flees to Cornwall from the Court of Charles II, jaded by its viciousness and debauchery. She meets and falls for a French pirate, whose reputation as a swashbuckling villain she finds to be ill-founded.
Daphne du Maurier (1907 - 89) was born in London, the daughter of the famous actor-manager Sir Gerald du Maurier and granddaughter of George du Maurier, the author and artist. She began writing short stories and articles in 1928 and in 1931 her first novel, THE LOVING SPIRIT, was published. It was the novel REBECCA that launched her into the literary stratosphere and made her one of the most popular authors of all time.
