あらすじ・解説

'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….

My favourite book of all of Christie's books

As soon as I heard the first words in the sample I knew I would love this book. The voice and the manner of Jackie Crago suits this book perfectly. That is exactly how I imagined Joan Scudamore to sound. I knew the story, I'd read this book before and Iloved it.

Life from an emotional abuser's viewpoint

Not sure if Joan is a narcissistic manipulator or delusional and manipulative.
The "perfect book" (sarcasm intended) when you what to view life from an emotional abuser's viewpoint and listen to lies she tells herself.
I wished that Christie could have gifted us with a different outcome..... can't add more without adding spoilers.

Absent in the Spring

I’d put off reading this book for years. I’m a keen Agatha Christie fan but wasn’t sure if I’d enjoy her writing as Mary Westmacott. I shouldn’t have worried. It was a very interesting read. It’s a short book, and I finished it over a couple of days. I wish more books were this length!

The character of Joan Sudmore is so sharply observed it’s almost painful. I did feel sorry for Joan. She doesn’t see herself as others do. Interestingly, the main character is “cut off” from her normal life and this enforces a period of unwelcome reflection. I suppose she had that in common with the characters from some of Agatha’s mysteries.

It’s very much not a mystery, so I can see why she published under a pseudonym, but I really enjoyed it, and I’ll definitely listen to more Mary Westmacott books.

The narration by Jacqui Crago is superb.

Strange story

I was interested in this book being a fan of Agatha Christie. This story is far removed from the style of the stories for which the writer is famous. Although there is an undercurrent of something interesting happening.... nothing comes to fruition...... it just peters out. A 'nothing' kind of tale. I think I'll give
the other Mary Westmacott novels a miss. The narrator does a good job.

Very thought provoking

I loved this book. It was a very engaging story. The epilogue really finished it off to perfection.

A book that makes you think about your life.

A woman finds herself marooned in a lonely place and is forced to review her life. Nothing much happens, but it is compelling listening. As ever, Agatha Christie, shows a great understanding of human nature and her wonderful gift of storytelling. I wish it had gone on longer.
