Description-

  • 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 killerWhen 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.

  • Publisher's Weekly

    April 4, 2016
    At the start of Berry’s tight debut, Nora, the book’s initially guarded narrator, travels from her home in London to her sister Rachel’s house in the Oxfordshire countryside, where she finds Rachel dead, stabbed multiple times. Devastated, Nora proceeds to insinuate herself into the ensuing police investigation, while starting her own among the people Rachel came in contact with. Determined to the point of obsession, she manages to offend nearly everyone. Old secrets come to light in all of their ugliness, including an attack on Rachel as a teen (and the sisters’ ongoing efforts to find the perpetrator). Nora struggles to resolve her love for her sister with the resentment that’s always simmered below the surface. Readers will enjoy trying to ferret out the clues along with Nora, but those who think they have the mystery figured out may be caught off guard by the surprising, if a bit abrupt, ending. Five-city author tour. Agent: Emily Forland, Brandt & Hochman Literary Agents.

  • AudioFile Magazine Fiona Hardingham's appealing British accent proves the perfect vehicle for this fast-paced psychological thriller. Her subtle shadings of tone and cadence allow for effortless character differentiation and highlight the author's talent for dialogue. Hardingham grabs the listener from the first sentence of this tightly written mystery, which opens with the protagonist, Nora, discovering the horrific murder of her sister. As Nora obsessively searches for the murderer, the secrets and lies she uncovers cause her to question everything about her life as she has known it. Hardingham sets a quick pace as she follows Berry's intriguing characters and evocative descriptions through Nora's desperate search for truth. Berry's skillful writing charges every word of the story with action and drama; Hardingham's equally skillful narration delivers every satisfying bit. M.O.B. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine
