Read full description of the books:



Agatha Christie, the world's best-selling novelist and author of more than eighty detective stories, was born in South Devon and retained a close relationship all her life with the area - in her view, the most beautiful part of England.

Two houses in Devon dominated her life: Ashfield in Torquay, where she was born and brought up and which she did not part with until she was nearly fifty; and Greenway on the River Dart, which she then bought, just before the Second World War. Though she was an enthusiastic property owner - at one stage she owned eight, many of them in London - she considered Greenway 'the loveliest house in the world', and she spent her summers there until her death in 1976. After the death of her daughter Rosalind Hicks in 2004, Greenway, which with its gardens had been given by the family to the National Trust, underwent a £5-million-pound restoration before opening to the public in 2009.

Illustrated by more than 100 colour photographs of the Devon that Agatha Christie knew, from Dittisham to Dartmoor and Burgh Island to Brixham, 'Agatha Christie at Home' explores the links between her home county and her works, identifying the settings she used in her books and shedding light on the influences on her writing. With a foreword by Agatha Christie's grandson Matthew Prichard, as well as archive photographs and extracts from her letters, this book presents a unique insight into the life and homes of Agatha Christie.
