Read The Woman on the Orient Express Online Free - 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.

Throughout my life I have always enjoyed reading mysteries as palette cleansers in between heavier reads. Whether its a contemporary series or historical stand alone, I am intrigued over the prospect of whodunit. Yet, my favorite mystery writer remains the Dame of British crime, Agatha Christie,...

I approached this book not knowing beforehand about the fact that it was a fictional account of Agatha Christie's journey on the Orient express. I was amused by the premise when I began reading. But soon I was invested in the tale.
Most of the journey from Calais to Istanbul made for an absorbing...

It is 1928 when Agatha has divorced her husband, Archie, after he told her that he was in love with another woman. She has endured endless press speculation about...

I gave this 5 stars on "Audible" so I will do the same here. If I had just read the book it probably would have been a 4/4.5, but the narration by the very talented Justine Eyre was superb, thus the 5 stars.
The writing was very good, and the concept of the story and the plot was great. Ashford c...

I have never read any books by Agatha Christie, but this book just sounded as if it was right up my alley. Although the fictionalized story only partially takes place on the Orient Express and it isn't a standard mystery, readers are...

I didn't have a clue what the book was about when I started to read this book. I thought this book would have some kind of mystery that that would inspire Agatha Christe to write one her mystery books. It wasn't until I had read perhaps half the book that I read the blurb and I'm glad that I did...

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I am such a huge Agatha Christie fan, she's the #1 author for a reason. Her books are always something I look forward to reading. When I saw this book I was instantly intrigued. Even though this is a fictional account of Agatha's time after her divorce from Archie,...

Of all the films made from Agatha Christie books, Murder on the Orient Express has always been my favorite. In the back of my mind ever since, I have wondered about the train, The Orient Express, as it seemed like an amazing way to see and experience life and history all at once.
This book offered...

The train ride to Damascus is long. The stoppages and well met along the way both squalid and elegant. The women interesting and troubled. All for various reasons.
The book is too long. The travelogue stops both smelly and breath-taking to visuals. The women (our prime three) both insular and cha...
