Under the Harrow by Flynn Berry

"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. "

3.5 out of 5 stars -- A young woman's dogged search for her sister's murderer takes some strange twists as she is tortured by memories of their shared  tumultuous past.

Even though sisters can be incredibly close, they still don't know EVERYTHING about each other -- as Nora finds out. Rachel did have secrets and one of them may have gotten her killed.

Although this book was rather slow at times, it was likely due to the incredible amount of detail about the setting that makes the reader almost feel THERE. Nora, as narrator, delivers a stream of consciousness barrage of description as well as many not so reliable recollections.

Anyone who enjoys psychological drama would probably like this debut novel.

Thank you to NetGalley and PENGUIN GROUP for the e-book ARC to review.
