Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Ivy and Abe by Elizabeth Enfield, read by Cassidy Janson.

Meet Ivy and Abe. Childhood friends in the 1960s, Ivy and Abe were inseparable until a chance event tore them apart. Now in their early 70s, fate once again brings them together - both grey-haired, Ivy hand in hand with her grandson - to fill in the gaps of one another's lives. Each has experienced great passions as well as heartbreaking tragedies, but the time is finally right for them.

Their love story seems, in the end, meant to be. But what if, in a parallel universe, chance had intervened and they'd met sooner? What if they'd met in their 40s, both married to other people, and began an affair? What if they'd met before then and married, but the daunting question mark over Ivy's health had suffocated Abe's love for her? What if, as lovestruck teenagers, one small moment had sealed their fate?

Ivy and Abe is a stunning novel about the different paths our lives might follow and the different people we might become along the way.

Genre: Literary Fiction

"An epic love story." - Araminta Hall

"Ivy and Abe are impossible to forget even after you've closed the book. Beautiful and wonderfully observed." - Kate Harrison

"Beautiful, uplifting and wise. I surfaced from the last page, feeling as comforted as I was moved." - Alison MacLeod

"A moving and thought-provoking novel in the tradition of Sliding Doors and The Versions of Us. One for anyone who's ever wondered if things might have turned out differently." - Alison Mercer
