When I read historical fiction, I always wonder what is truth and what is fiction. But Marie Benedict doesn't make this clear in her Notes or Acknowledgment at the end of THE MYSTERY OF MRS. CHRISTIE. So this is all I know: Agatha Christie really did disappear for a few days and then suddenly show up with no explanation, she really did surf, and she did not really write the "manuscript" alluded to throughout this book.

In the chapters that make up half the book are the supposed manuscript that Christie left for her philandering husband. The main emphasis is on the duty Christie felt she owed her husband. Remember, this book takes place during the 1920s, when many felt that the proper role of wives was to subjugate themselves to their husbands.

Until nearly the end, every other chapter is Christie's manuscript. Probably that is fiction. The other chapters take place during the disappearance and the hunt for her. This is when we hear about the husband's woes, and this too, I presume, is fiction. But Benedict says she did so much research for this book, some of this must be nonfiction.

My favorite parts of THE MYSTERY OF MRS. CHRISTIE are the last chapters, which are not her manuscript but just Christie speaking in first person. In the end, this book is both imaginative, after all, and enjoyable.

I was looking forward to reading this story with brave, unconventional women and reference to a true figure from history. Unfortunately I found it an awkward read, the flow just not working well. Components of the story competed against each other instead of enhancing the narrative. The POV character came off as needy more than brave. Aviation was more of a background, and Amelia Earhart as a character was barely developed. For a story that featured groundbreaking aviators, there was a lack of emphasis on their courage and skill, and the dangers and problems they faced.… (más)

Einstein…I don’t much like him right now…and it’s probably not his fault, but Marie Benedict did a great job making me feel this way!

This story is based on research, letters between Albert and his first wife and much speculation in the physic world, as well as a good imagination. I thoroughly enjoyed it and now I wonder too…

This author duo is one to follow…this is their second historical fiction collaboration and both books were AMAZING!!

The First Ladies is about Eleanor Roosevelt and Mary McLeod Bethune. Their friendship and working partnership should give us all pause…Anything can be accomplished; even when it takes small steps forward, large ones back and a few more forward. They worked hand in hand to change the landscape of politics in this country and to change the rights of African Americans in this country…both almost impossible feats to consider at the time and yet so desperately needed. I highly recommend this book and I will be on the lookout for any other books they may team on in the future!… (más)
