Ponden Hall is a centuries-old house on the Yorkshire moors, a magical place full of stories. It’s also where Trudy Heaton grew up. And where she ran away from…
Now, after the devastating loss of her husband, she is returning home with her young son, Will, who refuses to believe his father is dead.
While Trudy tries to do her best for her son, she must also attempt to build bridges with her eccentric mother. And then there is the Hall itself: fallen into disrepair but generations of lives and loves still echo in its shadows, sometimes even reaching out to the present…
This is such a beautifully written story that combines past and present into it. I love how refreshing and unique the story is and how it is told with the Bronte sisters making an appearance. All the characters are magical and I was completely taken away with how brilliantly written the story was. This is a book I would recommend over and over again.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.

If you could change the past, would you?
It is only after her mother’s death that Luna begins to discover her secrets.
While in New York to settle the estate, 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.
If time can be turned back, can it also be rewritten? Luna becomes 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 Luna have to sacrifice her own?
I was lucky enough to receive an advanced copy of this book. I have really enjoyed Rowan’s previous novels and couldn’t wait to start this one. It is a very different story to one I have read before but I was pulled in nether the less and couldn’t put it down. Luna can transport herself back to 1977. The story flits between the present and 1977. Luna wonders whether she can re write what happened to her mother back then, but can she?

Do not miss me, because I will always be with you…I am the air, the moon, the stars. For we are all made of stars, my beloved… Wherever you look, I will be there.

During her nursing shifts, Stella writes letters for her patients to their loved ones – some full of humour, love and practical advice, others steeped in regret or pain – and promises to post these messages after their deaths.
Until one night Stella writes the letter that could give her patient one last chance at redemption, if she delivers it in time…
I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy of this book, so I was really pleased as Rowan is one of my favourite authors. The storyline to this book is a sad one but it makes you appreciate life. It is an emotional book, so I did find myself crying in a few parts, I felt myself drawn to all the characters, they all have a big part in this book and I felt myself drawn to them all. I really liked the way the letters were brought into this story, I think it is such a lovely thing to do. This book has been researched extremely well, I think this book will remind me that I should appreciate my life and what I have as there are people out there that are less fortunate. Such an inspirational book.
