Summary

Hoping to make a clean break from a fractured marriage, Agatha Christie boards the Orient Express in disguise. But unlike her famous detective Hercule Poirot, she can't neatly unravel the mysteries she encounters on this fateful journey.
Agatha isn't the only passenger on board with secrets. Her cabinmate Katharine Keeling's first marriage ended in tragedy, propelling her toward a second relationship mired in deceit. Nancy Nelson - newly married but carrying another man's child - is desperate to conceal the pregnancy and teeters on the brink of utter despair. Each woman hides her past from the others, ferociously guarding her secrets. But as the train bound for the Middle East speeds down the track, the parallel courses of their lives shift to intersect - with lasting repercussions.
Filled with evocative imagery, suspense, and emotional complexity, The Woman on the Orient Express explores the bonds of sisterhood forged by shared pain and the power of secrets.

Didn't Finish…

I would rather have not rated this novel, because I know that I cannot be fair, but…

I'm afraid that I did not give the novel time to grip me - I progressed to chapter 4, but I really couldn't tolerate the narrator's voice! I found it quite grating - that doesn't normally happen with me, I can accept most accents, dialects and tones, but not Justine Eyre's I'm afraid. Listen to the sample first and then make your decision. The general reviews were ok, but I couldn't get sufficiently into the book to say if it was any good. Slow starting.

Very enjoyable "woman on transportation" book

After being thoroughly disgusted with Girl on a Train, and The Woman in Cabin 10 and their neurotic, alcoholic, unreliable narrators, I was delighted to find a book with a protagonist I could stand being in the company of. This is a fictionalized account of a period in Agatha Christie's life, and I found the story engrossing and entertaining. Some mystery, some suspense, some romance, some exotic locations, and a ride on the Orient Express adds up to some fun reading/listening.

Other than when she was attempting various foreign accents (thankfully, very brief), the narrator does a good job and is pleasant to listen to.

A great read

Most of the time I buy audio books because of the genera and rating without always reading the summary of what the book is about. Bring a Netflix binge watcher of Poirot, I was pleasantly surprised that this book was about Agatha Christie. It was beautifully written and had heartwarming story. It's one I will certainly listen to again.
