Publisher's Summary

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 finds she 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 that surround it, Nora is under the harrow: distressed and in danger. As Nora's fear turns to obsession, she becomes as unrecognisable 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. Read by Emma Powell.

Not bad....but those accents!

The story was a bit different to the usual crime/psychological thriller books that have become so popular in recent years.
I confess to sometimes losing my way and had to rewind quite frequently - it felt like it jumped around quite a bit between past, present, imaginary and between characters.
The 'plot' was good - I write 'plot' as I didn't feel it was a plot in the usual sense of the word when it comes to this genre. The insight into a relative's state of mind after a loved one is murdered worked very well. I usually work out whodunnit (or at least have a strong suspicion) but didn't in this story.
The narrator did ok - but the accents were dodgy to say the least, I'm talking laugh out loud dodgy! She just about got away with the Scottish (I'm being pretty generous here)... but the least said about the Australian/Welsh/Geordie/Irish character the better!

Haunting and beautifully written/narrated

I read this book when it first came out and as I had loved it so much, i really wanted to listen to a narration- I was not disappointed. Sufficient time had elapsed that I had forgotten some of the key parts and to have it come back to life for me with Emma Powell's silky voice was heaven. I'm originally from Yorkshire and her accent in those parts was accurate. Loved everything and highly recommend!!!
