The House on the Strand

Speculative fiction by Daphne du Maurier


The House on the Strand is a novel by Daphne du Maurier. First published in 1969 by Victor Gollancz, it is one of her later works and had a jacket illustration by her daughter, Flavia Tower. The US edition was published by Doubleday.
Like many of du Maurier's novels, The House on the Strand has a supernatural element. It is concerned with the ability to mentally travel back in time and experience historical events at first hand - but not to influence them.
It is set in and around Kilmarth near the Cornish village of Tywardreath, which in fact translates from the Cornish language as "House on the Strand".
