World-renowned as one of the most popular crime writers in the world, Agatha Christie was also a poet of considerable talent. At the age of forty she married the archaeologist Max Mallowan, fourteen years her jumior, and enjoyed a blissfully happy marriage with him. Aware that she was likely to die before him, she wrote the lines contained in this book as a source of comfort for the time when he might be left alone.
Written with the understanding of true love, Remembrance is a tender and beautiful expression of consolation for anyone who has lost or is about to lose a loved one, be it husband, wife, lover or friend.
Richard Allen’s sensitive and imaginative drawings provide the perfect visual complement to the words, making this a book to treasure.
