Shortly after the birth of Rosalind, Agatha finally got a publisher for her novel. After keeping the submission for several months, John Lane at The Bodley Head offered to accept it, provided that Christie change the ending. She did so, and signed a contract which she later felt was exploitative. It was finally published in 1920.
