Romance and infuriation
Frenchman's Creek is Romance (note the intentional capital R). It's classic romance in all its charming infuriating ways. After thoroughly enjoying Rebecca, I thought I should read another of Du Maurier's books. This has none of the creepiness, it's a romance about a lady and a pirate. You read that right.
It's actually a somewhat sweet book. A rather improper lady meets a pirate and breaks from convention by secretly taking part in his world. That pretty much sums it up. The infuriating bit is woven throughout. Her relationship to her young daughter being my pet peeve.
It's classic fluff for the most part.
