A house full of history is bound to have secrets... 'It's a beautiful story and written with such wisdom and kindness, and it also happens to be set my most favourite part of the world! It's incredibly smart, because like all good Gothic novels, it weaves together the past and the present and makes you realise just how much one relies on the other.' JOANNA CANNONPonden 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... A hauntingly beautiful story of love and hope, from the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Memory Book and The Summer of Impossible ThingsPraise for Rowan Coleman and THE GIRL AT THE WINDOW:'A completely enthralling read. It has so many layers and they all capture your heart.
In my opinion Rowan Coleman is one of the best writers of our time.' Katie Fforde'I'm so happy because she's written other books and its so lovely to find a writer you love who has a backlist' Marian Keyes'This book will keep you wide-eyed and awake until dawn. A rare combination of sensitive and gripping. Like the ghosts of Ponden Hall the story will linger with you long after you close the pages.' Carole Matthews
