Crossing Over By Ann Morgan

Crossing Over By Ann Morgan

Edie finds the world around her increasingly difficult to comprehend. Words are no longer at her beck and call, old friends won’t mind their own business and workmen have appeared in the neighbouring fields, preparing to obliterate the landscape she has known all her life. Rattling around in an old farmhouse on the cliffs, she’s beginning to run out of excuses to stop do-gooders interfering when one day she finds an uninvited guest in the barn and is thrown back into the past. Jonah has finally made it to England – where everything, he’s been told, will be better.

But the journey was fraught with danger, and many of his fellow travellers didn’t make it. Sights firmly set on London, but unsure which way to turn, he is unprepared for what happens when he breaks into Edie’s barn. Haunted by the prospect of being locked away and unable to trust anyone else, the elderly woman stubbornly battling dementia and the traumatised illegal immigrant find solace in an unlikely companionship that helps them make sense of their worlds even as they struggle to understand each other. 

My Thoughts:

This was such a beautiful read about two very different people and what happens when their worlds collide. Edie is not getting any younger and her age is creeping up on her more than she would like. She has started to forget things but she can remember so many things from her past. When she meets Jonah I wondered if he would be able to help her but can she also help him? It was interesting to see these two people come together when they needed someone the most. This is a sad story and it was heart breaking to see Edie deteriorating, you will know what I mean if you have been through it with someone. But this is such a thought provoking book that is told really well. I wanted to help Edie and I was hoping for the best for her.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
