APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Gripping courtroom drama meets The Girl on the Train in this heart-stopping psychological thriller, recently adapted into a BBC series. We were instantly hooked by the unflinching voice of scientist Yvonne Carmichael, who charts her life’s sudden change of course, from a passionate extramarital tryst to a murder trial. Apple Tree Yard places us at the centre of events as they escalate, alternating between the central court scene and late-night letters addressed to Yvonne’s lover. The book’s fragments form a tantalising story—and a compelling meditation on narrative reliability and middle-aged desire.
