DETAILS

Beginning in modern-day Britain before travelling to the southern hemisphere, The Crossing tells the story of an emotional journey and a dangerous voyage, each of which tests Maud to the limit.  She’s cool, calm and ostensibly in control, but is she really as detached as she seems? Is she running away or is she simply a survivor? Some people think they have got her measure. Most are mystified, left angry and wounded. The question is, how far does Maud understand herself and how will she come to terms with what has befallen her?

A viscerally honest, hypnotic portrait of modern love and motherhood, the lure of the sea and the ultimate unknowability of others, The Crossing confirms Andrew Miller’s position as one of the finest writers of his generation.
