The House of Brides by Jane Cockram is a modern retelling of Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca with of twist.
It’s Throwback Thursday, and in today’s episode, I’m sharing an interview I had with author Jane Cockram to talk about her debut novel, The House of Brides. In this contemporary retelling with of twist of Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca, a young social media influencer whose life is in tatters flees to England in hopes of learning more about her deceased mother but what she steps into is a web of secrets and lies.
This interview was recorded in September 2019, and the book was published in October 2019. Since then, Jane has published her second novel, The Way From Here (Amazon or Bookshop) — a suspenseful family drama.
