The House on the Strand is one of my favorite Daphne du Maurier books. I have read it over and over again for the past 20 years. It has a strange and wonderful tale. Imagine what it would be like to look around you and see what the world looked like years before, as if you were a silent, invisible visitor to another time. Wonderful book!/5().   The House on the Strand is a less-known book by Daphne DuMaurier, the woman who gave us Rebecca and Jamaica Inn. Here she interweaves past and present together in a novel that is just as rich as anything she has ever written. Magnus Lane is a professor at the University of London, who has created a potion that can send you back in by: 6.

With river views, Strand House is located in Padstow and has free WiFi. Each unit comes with a patio, a fully equipped kitchen with a dishwasher, a seating area with a sofa, a flat-screen TV, a washing machine, and a private bathroom with shower and a hairdryer/10(80). Good reading copies. Clean. No store stamps. DON'T LOOK NOW John and Laura are on holiday in Venice, but it is a dangerous place for them as they are being followed by two old sisters and there is a killer on the loose. THE HOUSE ON THE STRAND Dick Young is lent a house in Cornwall by his friend Professor Magnus Lane.

Jeff Strand is good. Real good. If you haven't read/listened to him, then you are missing out. Sick house is a good and enjoyable story. Not my favorite of Mr. Strands, but he has set the bar pretty high for himself which may have hurt him here a little bit. A good Strand is still head and shoulders above most. Strand House is made up of a pair of preserved Tudor Sussex Hall Houses build in the s during the reign of Henry V. At the time Winchelsea was England's second largest port importing wine from France and exporting wool from England. The house retains many of its original features such as sloping floors, old beams and lost of nooks and crannies/10().
