Audio Book Summary

A striking novel of truth and soul-searching.

Returning from a visit to her daughter in Iraq, Joan Scudamore finds herself unexpectedly alone and stranded in an isolated rest house by flooding of the railway tracks.
Looking back over the years, Joan painfully re-examines her attitudes, relationships and actions and becomes increasingly uneasy about the person who is revealed to her…

Famous for her ingenious crime books and plays, Agatha Christie also wrote about crimes of the heart, six bittersweet and very personal novels, as compelling and memorable as the best of her work.

    Excellent . Very different from her crime writing. Well worth a listen . Not for you if you want an action thriller this is a quiet novel about ordinary people and how they choose to get through life, some facing it head on, others lying to themselves all the way. Brilliantly observed three dimensional characters. excellent narration
