Six Mary Westmacott Novels: Giants Bread / Absent in the Spring / Unfinished Portrait / The Rose and the Yew Tree / A Daughters a Daughter / The Burden by Mary WestmacottMany people are familiar with Agatha Christies mysteries. Weve grown accustomed to stumbling over bodies in libraries, discovering that seemingly innocuous, hen-pecked husbands are actually homicidal maniacs, and having perfectly innocent train rides turn into murder scenes. Oh yes, Agatha Christie, as the Queen of Crime, is a well-known, well-respected figure. But Mary Westmacott…who has ever heard of her? Her novels, full of psychology, romance, and the complexity of human relationships, are nothing like Agathas spine-tingling who-done-its. This is the work of an extremely intelligent, highly-sensitive literary artist. But if you read closely…if you study the language, the sentiment, the well-crafted plot twists and turns…you begin to see the truth. Mary Westmacott is Agatha Christie, all right. But shes an Agatha who most people never bother to get to know. Shes a softer, more vulnerable Agatha, an Agatha who is writing from the heart rather than the brain. If youre a true fan of the Queen of Crime, Mary Westmacotts novels are not to be missed

It is a novel about Vernon Deyre, his childhood, his family, the two women he loved and his obsession with music.
