What did happen to Agatha Christie during her mysterious eleven-day disappearance just as she was on the cusp of fame?

Yes, she said, finally. Breaks are important. There are times when it's wiser to get away. From it all.

It was the work of a moment: On 4 December 1926, Agatha Christie became Teresa Neele, resident of the spa hotel, the Harrogate Hydro. With her wedding ring left behind, and her minimal belongings unpacked, the lost days begin.

Lying to her fellow guests about the death of a husband and child, Teresa settles in to the anonymity she so fiercely desires. Until Harry McKenna, bruised from the end of his own marriage, asks her to dance.

In this entrancing novel of creativity and grief, Kristel Thornell combines fact and fantasy to reconstruct Agatha Christie's retreat from a life that had become too difficult.

MEDIA REVIEWS
In this highly readable and very entertaining novel Thornell puts herself into the mind of Christie, imagining what the writer may have been going through and giving plausible answers to the Christie mystery... What emerges is not so much a murder mystery but a story about how relationships grow or die under any given circumstances. * Daily Telegraph (Sydney) *
