Spotlight: The Summer of Impossible Things

We're fans of Rowan Coleman's here at CLC and are excited to feature her latest novel, The Summer of Impossible Things. Review coming soon...

If you could change the past, would you?

Thirty years ago, something terrible happened to Luna’s mother. Something she’s only prepared to reveal after her death.

Now Luna and her sister have a chance to go back to their mother’s birthplace and settle her affairs. But in Brooklyn they find more questions than answers, until something impossible – magical – happens to Luna, and she meets her mother as a young woman back in the summer of 1977.

At first Luna’s thinks she’s going crazy, but if she can truly travel back in time, she can change things. But in doing anything – everything – to save her mother’s life, will she have to sacrifice her own? (Courtesy of Goodreads.)

"Spine-tinglingly beautiful. Prepare to lose your heart." ~Lisa Jewell

"An absolute triumph...loved it. So clever...such a brilliant writer." ~Jill Mansell

"Gorgeous, glowing, heart breaking and wonderful...Rowan’s best novel to date." ~Jenny Colgan

Rowan Coleman lives with her husband, and five children in a very full house in Hertfordshire. She juggles writing novels with raising her family which includes a very lively set of toddler twins whose main hobby is going in the opposite directions. When she gets the chance, Rowan enjoys sleeping, sitting and loves watching films; she is also attempting to learn how to bake.

Rowan would like to live every day as if she were starring in a musical, although her daughter no longer allows her to sing in public. Despite being dyslexic, Rowan loves writing. Her other books include The Accidental Mother, The Memory Book, Lessons in Laughing Out Loud, We are All Made of Stars, and the award-winning Dearest Rose (The Runaway Wife-US), a novel which lead Rowan to become an active supporter of domestic abuse charity Refuge, donating 100% of royalties from the ebook publication of her novella, Woman Walks Into a Bar, to the charity.

Rowan does not have time for ironing. (Bio courtesy of Rowan's website.)
