Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A psychological thriller that builds slowly as two women, in alternating chapters, tell of their lives. They overlap now and did years ago but one long forgotten. This is a tale of envy, jealousy, the have and the have-nots that right from the start has some deep underlying menace that you know has to erupt. What and how is beautifully done in such a way as to keep you on tenterhooks to the end, mixing social satire and a haunting thriller.

If you like Harriet Lane you might also like to read books by Donna Tartt, Zoe Heller and Sophie Hannah.

Synopsis

Her by Harriet Lane

Emma is a struggling mother who has put everything on hold. Nina is sophisticated and independent - entirely in control. When the pair meet, Nina generously draws Emma into her life. But this isn't the first time the women's paths have crossed. Nina remembers Emma and she remembers what Emma did. But what exactly does Nina want from her? And how far will she go in pursuit of it?

Reviews

Harriet Lane's Alys Always was one of the most memorable fictional debuts of recent years, a seemingly simple story that discovered subtle ways to unsettle, and which found elegant, disturbing insights into familiar English obsessions with class and status. Lane's new book, Her, due in June, promises to be this year's unmissable summer novel. Among Lane's antecedents is the pin-sharp prose of Particia Highsmith -- Tim Adams THE OBSERVER

The exquisitely sinister psychological thriller that is going to take us all by storm this summer, Harriet Lane's Her, has a Notes on a Scandal-type relationship between an exhausted young mother and her rich sophisticated neighbour. -- Amanda Craig THE DAILY TELEGRAPH
