*If you are new here, WELCOME! For The Mystery of Mrs. Christie, I provide your book club with a brief summary, a food ideas, and discussion questions in that order!
If you’re a fan of Agatha Christie, you probably know that in 1926 Mrs. Christie went missing for 11 days. When she surfaced, she claimed to have no memory of what happened during that time and to this day it remains a mystery.
That is until Marie Benedict hypothesized perhaps the most logical reason for Mrs. Christie’s disappearance in her latest novel The Mystery of Mrs. Christie.
While I was skeptical that Benedict could offer a plausible story for Mrs. Christie’s disappearance after all these years, I’m happy to tell you that she does! And she keeps the reader’s attention through the entire story.
Told from Agatha’s and her husband’s (Archie) perspective, the novel explores the time leading up to the disappearance, the missing days, and the reunion.
I love reading books that explore the lives of authors and this was no different. I especially loved learning more about Agatha Christie’s beginnings and it made me want to read more of her works.…
