The Crossing, her life changes in ways that few readers will ever experience. At the same time, her life is our life: a story of survival and doing all we can to do what the next right thing seems to be. Miller’s prose is outstanding, and the complexity of Maud will delight those readers who appreciate literary fiction. There’s a theme of motherhood that ties parts of the novel together, and book club members may find this novel will make an ideal selection for a conversation about the ways in which women as mothers become transformed. Maud’s journey in this novel, especially on her boat, focused my complete attention on her response to suffering. Maud’s strength becomes revealed in dramatic ways in this novel, and Miller’s writing skills kept me entertained from beginning to end.
