A newly reissued edition of Agatha Christie's 'Mary Westmacott' novel, a Crime of the Heart novel about a mother who comes to resent her daughter's success. 'These books are dramatic, and concentrate on the solution to situations which arise out of the high tensions in life.' Max Mallowan Ann Prentice falls in love with Richard Cauldfield and hopes for new happiness. Her only child, Sarah, cannot contemplate the idea of her mother marrying again and wrecks any chance of her remarriage. Resentment and jealousy corrode their relationship as each seeks relief in different directions. Are mother and daughter destined to be enemies for life or will their underlying love for each other finally win through?
Agatha Christie is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime for her 80 ingenious crime books and her plays. Writing anonymously as Mary Westmacott, she also wrote about crimes of the heart, a series of six bittersweet novels with a jagged edge, as compelling and memorable as the best of her work.
