|Identify Du Maurier Novel
I wonder if anyone can help me identify which novel the following description refers to: "Which Daphne Du Maurier finished historical novel concerns life in 19th Century Cornwall and introduces Mark, a pub landlord, and a Frenchman arriving on a schooner." Thanks for any help

|The book you are referring to is Castle Dor, which was started by Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch and completed by Daphne du Maurier many years later at the request of Arthurís daughter, Foy. It was published in 1962 and is basically the retelling of the story of Tristan and Iseult. Mark is Mark Lewarne, the landlord of the Rose and Anchor in the town of Troy (Sir Arthurís name for Fowey). The Frenchman who arrives in Troy on a schooner is Amyot Trestane, an onion-seller.
