I'm re-reading Agatha Christie and this is my new favorite book of hers.
- The characters are all likeable, even the villians.
- The story spans London, a long boat journey to South Africa (in 1st class!) and South Africa itself (with an on-going revolution to boot). Classic!
- Multiple marriage proposals for a beautiful orphaned girl. Love and honesty trump all.
- We get a glimpse of the characters a couple years after the story ends.

This story doesn't contain any of Christie's usual characters (i.e. Miss Marple, Poirot, Tuppence & Tommy) but I think you will fall in love with Anne Beddingfeld like I did. Also, there is nothing formulaic about it. It is fresh and vibrant. It keeps you guessing until the end.
