Hi, my name is Alina and I am Hercule Poirot and Agatha Christie’s biggest fan. Throughout the years I have read many articles talking about Christie’s peculiar disappearance. And like many other people – I found the disappearance fascinating and quite intriguing. Nevertheless, I have enjoyed Nina de Gramont’s version of the events that took place over the mysterious eleven days.
The day Agatha has disappeared was a day when her beloved husband has informed her of his wish for the divorce. Shocked and hurt, Agatha packed her adored little car and went on her mysterious adventure. But this story is not about Agatha, this story is about Nan, the second Mrs. Christie.
At first, I disliked Nan’s character. Who wouldn’t? A promiscuous young woman who broke the marriage and family. But it takes two to tango, isn’t it? As the novel continued, I began to admire the girl. Her strong and bold character, patience, and her fierce love for her child gave me goosebumps. Her backstory was so tragic, I can’t imagine the heartbreak she went thru… alone. One question still remains unanswered. Did Agatha tell Nan the truth about the little girl? Or did she want to give Nan closure? Nevertheless, I admire both women and the bond they have shared for the rest of their lives.
