Publisher Comments:

Finally Available Again--Three Classic Novels by Agatha Christie writing as Mary Westmacott

First published between 1930 and 1956, the six novels written by Agatha Christie under the name Mary Westmacott, regarded by some as the writer's finest work, show a very different side of her talent. What they share with her other fiction is Christie's gift for sharp observations about people, the ambitions that drive them, their relationships, and the conflicts that erupt between them. This omnibus edition brings together three of the Westmacott novels:

A Daughter's Daughter: A daughter's opposition to her mother's plan to remarry threatens to destroy their relationship

Unfinished Portrait: Bereft of three people she has held most dear, Cecilla must decide if she has the strength to come to terms with the past.

The Burden: The burden of one sister's love for her younger sister--whom she's sworn to protect--has a drmatic effect on both their lives.

Synopsis:

This omnibus edition collects three of Christie's Westmacott novels: "A Daughter's a Daughter, " where a daughter's opposition to her mother's plans to remarry threatens to destroy their relationship; "The Burden, " the story of two sisters who have a dramatic effect on each other; and "Unfinished Portrait, " wherein Celia, bereft of the three most important people in her life, must find the courage to start again.
