She was shy, ferociously private and deeply devoted to her garden. Food was Agatha Christie's other great passion. She adored chocolate truffles, even ordered them to be delivered to her in the desert of Arabia, and thought nothing of drinking an entire cup of rich, pure cream. So much for any element of scandal in the great mystery writer's life.

From the jacket and frontispiece of Gillian Gill's massive, impeccably researched biography, a haunting photo of Mary Baker Eddy, taken when she was a young widow, stares at you. Her gaunt face, especially her enormous eyes, seem tinged with suffering, perhaps also with madness.

To the Editor: Martin Gardner's article "Mind Over Matter" (Book Review, Aug. 22) purports to review three books: Mary Baker Eddy's "Science and Health With Key to the Scriptures;" Dr. Gillian Gill's 1998 biography, "Mary Baker Eddy"; and Caroline Fraser's new "God's Perfect Child: Living and Dying in the Christian Science Church." Had these books received equal treatment along with their equal billing, the first two books would have considerably redressed the pointed imbalance of the latter.
