Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier

"Last night, I dreamt I went to Manderly again."

This is a classic, Gothic novel about a woman who marries a widower and moves into his incredible house in England.  But there's a big mystery surrounding his first wife, Rebecca: who she is, and how she died.  For a "classic," its definitely a page turner.  Girls will love this book, and I think guys would enjoy it too.  Plus Hitchcock made a movie about it in 1940 - so its gotta be pretty good.  Very mysterious, very eerie.  Oh, and the weather always forshadows what is about to happen.

So, since its raining outside - does that mean I'm going to meet the "baby ghost" of Prague?
