9780007399079: Absent in the Spring

'The one book that has satisfied me completely – the book I always wanted to write.' Agatha Christie

Returning from a visit to her daughter in Iraq, Joan Scudamore finds herself unexpectedly alone and stranded in an isolated rest house by flooding of the railway tracks.
Looking back over the years, Joan painfully re-examines her attitudes, relationships and actions and becomes increasingly uneasy about the person who is revealed to her…

Review:

'I've not been so emotionally moved by a story since the memorable Brief Encounter… Absent in the Spring is a tour de force which should be recognized as a classic.' New York Times

'Very readable indeed.' Times Literary Supplement

Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language and another billion in over 100 foreign languages. She is the author of 80 crime novels and short story collections, 19 plays, and six novels under the name of Mary Westmacott.
