Ann Morgan’s Crossing Over is an Audible Exclusive!

Crossing Over, Ann Morgan’s novel about a surprising friendship amidst trauma and uncertainty has been acquired by Audible by commissioning editor Harriet Poland. World English Language audio rights, with six months audio exclusivity, were bought from Caroline Hardman. The audiobook will be narrated by actress Adjoa Andoh and is due to be published on Friday 29th March.

Crossing Over tells the emotional story of an 85-year-old woman, losing her memories to dementia, and the illegal immigrant she finds sheltering in her barn. The discovery leads to an unlikely friendship between the two.

Edie is struggling. She’s increasingly confused but she can’t let the women in the village find that out, they’d only talk. But she’s forgetting so much – forgetting to wear matching clothes, forgetting to bake one of her walnut cakes for the WI sale…and forgetting to lock the door…until one day she wakes to find Jonah in her house and herself in her past.

Jonah is struggling. The journey to England was illegal and dangerous and he’s the only one who survived – and he still hasn’t made it to London. Everything will be fine if he can just get to London. But can he leave Edie to look after herself? And can he hide from the authorities? And from his past?
