9780007415878: Unfinished Portrait

A newly reissued edition of Agatha Christie’s ‘Mary Westmacott’ novel, a Crime of the Heart novel about a woman on the verge of suicide.

'In Celia we have more nearly than anywhere else a portrait of Agatha.' Max Mallowan

Bereft of the three people she has held most dear - her mother, her husband and her daughter - Celia is on the verge of suicide. Then one night on an exotic island she meets Larraby, a successful portrait painter, and through a long night of talk reveals how she is afraid to commit herself to a second chance of happiness with another person, yet is not brave enough to face life alone. Can Larraby help Celia come to terms with the past or will they part, her outcome still uncertain?

Review:

‘A study of a shy, emotional nature, verging on the pathological… worth reading.' New York Times
