Overview
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 this writer's 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 the 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 with the two very different women in his life
The Rose and the Yew Tree Isabella Charteris must choose between the expectations of her class and the possibility of love

Now available again for the first time in over a decade, the Mary Westmacott novels will surprise new readers and delight longtime fans.
