The Summer of Impossible Things is a bold, evocative novel set between 2007 and 1977 Brooklyn, New York. At its heart is a story about love, courage and sacrifice that spans these thirty years – love between a mother and daughter, between two brave siblings,  and between a man and woman from different times…

If you could change the past, would you?

It is only after her mother’s death that Luna discovers the secrets she has been hiding for thirty years. Now she and her sister must travel to their mother’s childhood home and settle her affairs. But in Brooklyn something impossible happens to Luna. She finds herself in 1977, face to face with her mother as a young woman, in the week that changed her life forever. But if time can be turned back, can it also be rewritten? Luna is convinced she can save her mother from the moment that will eventually drive her to suicide. But in doing anything – everything – to save her mother’s life, will she have to sacrifice her own?

Rowan ColemanRowan Coleman lives with her husband, and five children in a very full house in Hertfordshire. She juggles writing novels with raising her family. She really wishes someone would invent time travel.
