Praise for The Crossing and Andrew Miller

..".whether he sets a story in the 18th century or the present, and no matter his subject, [Miller's] prose is highly distinctive in its detached precision. He writes like a scientist, utterly shorn of sentimentality, patient and cleareyed."
--Claire Messud, The New York Times Book Review

"Maud emerges as a memorable figure, a misunderstood woman who has yet to discover her own brilliance and tenacity."
--The New Yorker

"The beauty of this subtle novel is that it derives enormous power from small details, such as the discovery of a heart-shaped hair clip, and Maud's encounters with children on a distant island."
--Shelf Awareness

"[T]aut, crystalline, with not a wasted word. Toss aside the "Girl" mysteries - this one is more grown up, and far less forgettable."
--The Minneapolis Star Tribune

"In pristine, elegant prose, Miller creates an indelible portrait of a mysterious woman and her tragic quest."
--Kirkus (Starred Review)
