It was my turn to host book club this month....
Some interesting facts about Agatha Christie...
She was homeschooled for her early education.
She married Archie Christie after only knowing him for a short time. He left the day after they were married to serve as a pilot in the RAF in WW1.
She has one daughter, Rosalind.
On learning her husband wanted a divorce in order to marry his mistress, she had a nervous breakdown and disappeared for a short time. This caused a media frenzy.
She did take the Orient Express in 1928....visiting many exotic places.
On her 1930 trip on the Orient Express to the desert, she met Max Mallowan. Max was 13 years her junior but they married and lived together until Ms Christie's death in 1976.
She spent many years with Max in the desert, doing archeological digs. Max was awarded a knighthood for his service in that field.
Agatha Christie is the Best Selling Novelist in the world of all time. Only the Bible and Works of Shakespeare have outsold her works.
A question for all you Agatha Christie fans....who is your favorite character created by this wonderful author? Mine is Miss Marple with Hercule Poirot coming in a close second. Judy at Cranberry Morning had two kitties named Tommy and Tuppence if I remember correctly. I knew at once who they were named for!!
