Postern of Fate - Agatha Christie

"Betty, our adopted daughter, went to Africa," said Tommy, "Have you heard from her?"


To be clear, Tommy is talking to Tuppence. His wife. Betty's mother. I am glad that he clarified that he was talking about THEIR CHILD, because otherwise, I am sure that Tuppence would've had no idea who he was talking about...


So far, this has the opposite effect from By The Pricking of My Thumbs - nothing is happening. Although exploring classic children's lit with the Beresfords isn't completely charmless.
