Agatha Christie, A Life in Three Acts Part 3: Personal and Professional Success, & the Later Years

by Christina Morgan Cree

It was 1928 and Agatha Christie was on her own, newly divorced and traveling to the Middle East on the Orient Express. It was a kind of test for herself; she wondered how she’d do without anyone else to help or keep her company. Once there, she met some new British friends, the Woolleys, who invited her to stay with them and made her promise to come visit again the next year.
