Sintesi dell'editore

The Sunday Times bestseller

Every town has its ugly little secrets...

From the outside, the house in Lakeview Terrace looks perfect and the Bigelows seem like the perfect family: the respected surgeon father, the glamorous, devoted mother and two beautiful children. A perfect family, in a perfect house living their perfect lives.  

But perfect surfaces can hide dark undercurrents and behind closed doors lies a very different story. Teenager Zane and his younger sister, Britt, are terrorised by their violent father and dysfunctional mother. Too afraid to speak out, Zane does his best to protect his sister and counts the days until they can finally be free. 

One dark, brutal night when their father's temper takes a horrifying turn for the worse, the perfect façade is exposed for the lie it is and Zane and Britt manage to escape. With the help of their beloved aunt, they rebuild their lives a day at a time, creating new families and putting their past behind them. But a childhood like that can cast a shadow the length of a lifetime. Can Zane and Britt ever be free of their past? Or will those dark undercurrents rise to the surface, forcing them to fight for their lives once again...

©2019 Nora Roberts (P)2019 Hachette Audio UK

"[Under Currents] is brilliantly plotted and unrelentingly propulsive. It is a beautifully written story about the fragility of life and the power of the past and the need to fight back... a highly recommended novel for this summer." (The Washington Book Review)

"...full of powerful, magnetic characters." (Publishers Weekly)

Disappointing

This was not what I've come to expect from Nora Roberts. It felt like I was listening to three short stories which were trying to be connected.

The narrator, one of my favorites, was brilliant as always.

Perfect Currents

Perfect.

The right tones. The right words.

Everything was just right.

This story had me engaged from start to finish. I understood and felt everything each characters felt. So human, so right.

Just the perfect under currents.

Entertaining

Nora Roberts has a fabulous way with words, and this book is no exception. I would rather read than listen, but love audio when I have work to do. Therefore companions work so well. Although I prefer male narrators to female, this narrator was not too difficult to listen to. Nora doesn’t disappoint with her vivid imagery and great story telling, I was beautifully entertained

Nora at her finest.

Loved it, even though I knew what to expect - still a great yarn. A relaxing listen - 3 stories in one.

Excellent

This is an excellent story. One of the best from a really good author .
The characters are interesting and strong. The double plot is tense and thrilling.

A lovely long listen

This is another cracking story. It has elements of other books, the author’s obvious love of gardens and dogs, and her enjoyment of small town America. The way she writes about these communities makes me want to up sticks and move countries! There were lots of storylines, but they all converged in the end. The characters were mostly believable, although sometimes the good are a bit too good to be true. Nora certainly knows how to suck the listener into the world she has created. The narrator was excellent as always.

Good, but with an obvious plot twist

I loved the book; I loved the characters, I found the subject to be relevant to today's society (in general).
But, unfortunately, I saw the villain "coming a mile away".

Should have been a couple chapters shorter!

Harrowing story but I Struggled a little with the descriptive chapters of this book as they droned on and brought nothing to the storyline. This book would have been a great platform for the wonderful work Therapist/Counsellors do for abused children and adults. Unfortunately Roberts glanced over this where the kids were concerned and never mentioned anything about counselling being offered to the parents whilst they were in prison, especially as the mother needed to realise just how unhealthy her relationship was.
The Narrative was excellent as always from January LaVoy, the male voices were believable. I just feel that the book could have been a little shorter as not all your readers will know (or want to know) about shrubs and flowers Ms Roberts.

The best.

I’ve listened to about thirty Nora Roberts books and I’ve listened to this one three times. Some of them aren’t great, I’m no blind super fan, but this own really is brilliant.
Plot, character, story arc, psychology, thriller, twists and turns, the depth of her research. It’s a joy. A perfect listen for me. Up there with The Witness and Shelter In Place.
