Publisher's Summary

A debut psychological thriller about a young woman who finds her sister brutally murdered and the shocking incident in their past that may hold the key to finding the killer.

When Nora takes the train from London to visit her sister in the countryside, she expects to find her waiting at the station or at home cooking dinner. But when she walks into Rachel's familiar house, what she finds is entirely different: Her sister has been the victim of a brutal murder.

Stunned and adrift, Nora can't return to her former life. An unsolved assault in the past has shaken her faith in the police, and she can't trust them to find her sister's killer. Haunted by the murder and the secrets she unravels, she is under the harrow - distressed and in danger. As Nora's fear turns to obsession, she becomes as unrecognizable as the sister her investigation uncovers.

A riveting psychological thriller and a haunting exploration of the fierce love between two sisters, the distortions of grief, and the terrifying power of the past, Under the Harrow marks the debut of an extraordinary new writer.

Critic Reviews

"[Narrator] Fiona Hardingham's appealing British accent proves the perfect vehicle for this fast-paced psychological thriller.... Berry's skillful writing charges every word of the story with action and drama; Hardingham's equally skillful narration delivers every satisfying bit." ( AudioFile)

I DID NOT UNDERSTAND THIS BOOK

I've never had an audible book that I just didn't get. I haven't liked some but this one, I just simply didn't understand any of it.

Exhausting and boring

What would have made Under the Harrow better?

I got this book because of the reviews. I was bored out of my mind. Yes, the book has a good twist to it, but the whole books is just so drawn out. I was confused with all the characters and couldn't keep track of everyone. I am just so happy it's over.

Has Under the Harrow turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, I still like mysteries.

Just ok

Can't pinpoint the exact problem but it could be that I found myself not really caring about the characters. Listened until the end but if you asked me if it's was worth it I would probably have to say no

Utterly boring

There was no heart in this book. The main character was painful and a mess.

Excellent Award Wining Novel

I enjoyed this book and felt it was a well written mystery as well as an introspection into the heart of two sisters. Other reviewers found the novel hard to follow. I think this might have been because the story jumped back and forth in time and place. Reading the book as an actual hard copy would have solved this problem. I don’t have a copy of the book but I wonder if each chapter had a title. No matter, the book is one that you must concentrate on to catch the subtle shifts. For me it was well worth the concentration.

Slow

Slow to start and then difficult to keep up with. The narrator was great though.

Lost interest

I lost interest in this story about half way through. The woman read it well. The storyline I just found boring to me.
