This is an auction for an audiobook of ACROSS THE RIVER by Alice Taylor.

Book 2 of 3 in the Mossgrove Series.

Read by Aoife McMahon.

"Taylor's sturdy, workmanlike prose suits her story well, and this pleasant novel will leave readers caught in the Phelan tale and waiting for more."
- Booklist (US)

"In County Cork, in 1960, Martha Phelan is running the Mossgrove farm with the help of old hand Jack, daughter Nora, and her son Peter. Since the death of her husband, relations between her and 20-year-old Peter have been strained—but never more so than now. Coming into his own, Peter wants to take charge and modernize the farm, but Martha has other plans for their savings. She hopes to build her dream house, finally leaving behind both the dark old farmhouse she came to as a bride and the ghosts and memories of the Phelan ancestors that haunt it. But there are more than familial disputes afoot. An amiable cast and description aplenty for those looking for a bit of an Irish idyll."
- Kirkus Reviews (US) reviews:

"FIVE STARS!!! LOVE Alice Taylor books! I have visited the town where she lives and looked in the window of her home which sits on the main street in a tiny gorgeous little town in Ireland. Her books are sold in a small grocery store right next to her home. We are going again this Fall and this Texas girl will stop in again to that store hoping she pops in!"

"The continuing story of two families in Ireland with conflicts and relationships in various states of upheaval. Interesting to learn more of Irish culture,language, etc. A good read."
