LEIGH FORBES: Books of all Sorts

The Summer of Impossible Things


by Rowan Coleman.

Luna’s mother has died. Travelling to Boston with her sister, they aim to lay the family ghosts to rest by selling the family home. But when the impossible happens, Luna realises she has a chance to change the past. Can she do it? Should she? And at what cost… will she give up everything to save her mum?

The Summer of Impossible Dreams is a story about love and sacrifice, which carries the reader on an impossible journey through the choices we make, the regrets we have, and asks the question ‘would you change it if you could?”

Coleman writes a prose so vivid I felt like I was there, seeing and feeling the story along with the characters. I read it in 24h, despite work, children, and life. I just didn’t sleep instead.
