  • Absent in the Spring, and Other Novels: Absent in the Spring, Giant's Bread, The Rose and the Yew Tree : A Mary Westmacott Omnibus

    Absent in the Spring, and Other Novels: Absent in the Spring, Giant's Bread, The Rose and the Yew Tree : A Mary Westmacott Omnibus

    Westmacott, Mary

    First published between 1930 and 1956, the six novels written by Agatha Christie under the name Mary Westmacott, regarded by some as the writer's finest work, show a very different side of her talent. What they share with her other fiction is Christie's gift for sharp observations about people, the ambitions that drive them, their relationships, and the conflicts that erupt between them. This omnibus edition brings together three of Westmacott novels: Absent in the Spring : Stranded between trains, Joan Scudamore finds herself reflecting upon her life, her family, and finally coming to grips with the uncomfortable truths about her life. Giant's Bread : The story of Vernon Deyre, a composer and pianist whose obsession with art wreaks havoc with the two very different women in his life. The Rose and the Yew Tree : In one of the finest explorations of the human heart, the compelling story of a deep and abiding love, the conflicts it encompasses, and the price that must be paid.
