About the books

The Summer of Impossible Things

A beautiful novel about family, courage, sacrifice and love in all its guises from the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Memory Book.

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?

How far would you go to save the person you love?

Luna is about to do everything she can to save her mother's life.

Even if it means sacrificing her own.

The Light Between Us

Thea and Isaac were once close, but they've grown apart.

Thea works tirelessly, convinced that she can prove everyone around her wrong - convinced she can prove that time travel is possible. But when her latest attempt goes awry, she finds herself picking up the phone and calling her old friend.

Isaac is in New York - it's the middle of the night, but when he sees who's calling him, he cannot ignore his phone. At Thea's request, he travels home, determined to help her in her hour of need.

But neither of them are prepared for what they will discover when he gets there. 

The Light Between Us is a story of second chances and time travel. It begs the dangerous question that we all ask ourselves - what could have been?
