Even if you're not a fan of Agatha Christie's mystery books, you will be after reading this book.

Marie Benedict gives the historical background of Agatha's life with her family and how she was swept off her feet with Lt. Archie Christie. She followed her mummy's guidance: "A wife's duty is to be with her husband, because her husband must come first, even before her children. If a wife leaves her husband alone for too long, she will lose him." However, the war changed Archie. How then could she reclaim her husband? From start to finish, it's all about Agatha Christie's missing days.

It's not a mystery as we already know what happens. However, it shows how one woman carefully calculated her decisions to her advantage.

A book about a strong, independent woman, Agatha Christie, by a noted author? Of course it will be a best seller. ( )

The letter flutters on the desk, almost keeping time with the footsteps thundering across the floor. Back and forth, back and forth, the feet pace, and the thick writing paper quivers to the same rhythm. The black, spiky words that possess the ivory page seem to come alive and pulsate with each heavy tread.
"How do you want this story to end? It seems to me there are two paths from which you can choose, the first involving a softer landing than the second, though neither are without bumps and bruises, of course. .."

I really enjoyed The Mystery of Mrs. Christie, as I have several other of Marie Benedict's books. I feel like I should have figured out what the manuscript chapters were all about long before I did, though. Her account of herself was just too good to be true, but she really made me believe and feel sorry for her. The saddest part was the way she sacrificed her relationship with her daughter to put her sorry husband first in her affections. In the end I cheered when she was able to get him to admit his culpability, but how much of it was true in the context of this book (never mind what really happened to Mrs. Christie for those eleven days)? It's a mark of the author's skill that we're left wondering. ( )

Based on a true story. I read Agatha Christie's biography years ago and found it interesting (I was an avid reader of her books). I found this interesting too, and light reading. Kind of wrapped up a bit quickly at the end. I enjoyed the back and forth from different perspectives and timelines. ( )
