Agatha's Husband

by Dinah Maria Craik

It is a wonderful read as the Author has used Purbeck as her inspiration for one of the settings for this book with Wareham being know as Kingcoombe and the well known clay Merchant William Joseph Pike as Marmaduke Dugdale. In real life the Dugdales lived opposite the Pikes and one of the Pike family was Marmaduke Christian Pike. It was good to read of Corfe Castle being a place for a picnic before the NT started charging for access.
