Review: The Summer of impossible things by Rowan Coleman

summer of b t



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?


My Review

First off I  just love time travelling tales so when I saw this for review I knew I had to request this. As this would be right up my street! It certainly was!!!

This book was a beautifully written  and very thought- provoking. I got completely and emotionally involved with all the characters and just had to plough through this book quickly to see what the outcome would be.

I loved Rowan Colemans  way of handling the narrative, it was spot on.  I read this at the end of a holiday and was even reading it as I queued at the check in desk. (I was that hooked)

I am very surprised at myself for not having read any of Rowans books before ( I even have 2 on my TBR pile) this is something I will certainly be correcting within the next year.

Thank you to the publisher for sending this to me for an honest review which is above.

5 out of 5 stars
