Our host for this month is Chris Benson.

Our book is "My Cousin Rachel," by Daphne du Maurier.

Orphaned at an early age, Philip Ashley is raised by his older cousin, Ambrose. Resolutely single, Ambrose delights in Philip as his heir, and Philip grows to love Ambrose's grand estate as much as he does. But the world the two construct is shattered when Ambrose travels to Florence, where he falls in love and marries a mysterious distant cousin named Rachel. And there he dies suddenly.


Jealous of his marriage, racked by suspicion at the hints in Ambrose's letters, and grief-stricken by his death, Philip prepares to meet his cousin's widow with hatred in his heart. But when she arrives at the estate, Rachel seems to be a different woman from the one described in Ambrose's letters. Beautiful, sophisticated, and magnetic, Philip cannot help but feel drawn to Rachel. And yet, questions linger: did she have had a hand in Ambrose's death? And how, exactly, did he die? As Philip pursues the answers to these questions, he realizes that his own fate could hang in the balance.
