"Last night I dreamed of Naquasset again."
In this modern-day retelling of Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca, a naïve young Midwestern woman unexpectedly lands her dream job: a curatorial position at a cutting-edge contemporary art museum on Cape Cod. After relocating to the New England coast, our unnamed heroine soon finds both the stunning museum and the eccentric staff haunted by the ghost of Alena, the alluring curator who disappeared two years previously. A sophisticated and suspenseful homage to Du Maurier's gothic masterpiece, Alena stands on its own as an enthralling mystery enriched with provocative ruminations on the nature of art, love, and death.
