Publisher's 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.

    "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.

    "Biographical fiction"

    I enjoyed this biographical fiction of Agatha Christie until the author decided to emphasize romance over characterization. The melodramatic finale kinda ruined the story. I really like this narrator, and she did a good job with this.

    "Nicely done little historical mystery"

    oh and romance. I'm looking for other books by this author


    Does what it's supposed to. Sets up impossible situations for several characters with an underlying sense of menace.

    "Very rich in history. "

    Loved the history. Had some difficulty in the beginning keeping up with the introduction of characters. After that, you wanted more and you got it.

    "Excellent book!"
    If you could sum up The Woman on the Orient Express in three words, what would they be?

    Perfection, Biographical, Food


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Woman on the Orient Express?

    When Agatha finally knew that Nancy wasn't her ex husbands lover


    Have you listened to any of Justine Eyre’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    "The Color of Secrets" is about love and finding out about yourself. This one doesn't compare except finding out secrets, as in Agatha Christie...but they're both intense


    If you could take any character from The Woman on the Orient Express out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Agatha hands down...because she was a great writer, I'd want to know more about Archie and they're divorce and find out about her ways she writes


    Any additional comments?

    Okay I'm British and understood many words, maybe Americans don't, but put that aside. This book is fantastic! I finished listening 2 days ago, actually I started it Jan 1 and finished Jan 2 because I felt there was no point I could leave off...seriously! I couldn't sleep and no matter when I put my sleep timer on, I just took it off, I had to finished it. I've complimented the author "Lindsay Jayne Ashford" (very British name) on her previous book, "The color of secrets" another find everyone needs to listen to, but this is so far from that one. It deserves everything 5 stars I have it. I am a writer and maybe I have finally decided to write about the past, because I did write a short story the other day about the past and semi autobiographical, I felt inspired. Anyway, after listening I looked into Agatha Christies past and many things in this are based on her life, I really loved that. I love her and this great book!

    "Agatha"

    A startling tale of three women thrown together on a train. What followed changed all their lives. Each entered the train with singular issues. Literally thrown together, their destinies became intertwined. All as the train moved on to its destination. A peep into the personal life of Agatha Christie.

    "Good Walking Listen"

    The story was a little contrived, but good light listening. Narrator's voice was too windy and wispy.
