A house full of history is bound to have secrets…
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…
A hauntingly beautiful story of love and hope, from the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Memory Book and The Summer of Impossible Things
I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book. All opinions are my own and no content may be copied. However, authors and publishers may use elements of my reviews for quotes.
I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of Rowan Coleman’s latest novel: The Girl at the Window. As you can see from the blogtour poster a lot of highly respected book bloggers are very keen to help promote Rowan Coleman’s novel, this is a testament to the popularity of the author and of her wonderful way with words.
This book is so beautifully atmospheric I didn’t want it to end. From the very beginning I felt emotional with the words on the pages. My heart ached for Trudy and Will and I felt a hunger within me to know what happens next in the story. Rowan Coleman has written a story that will appeal to many; to the die-hard Brontë fans and to the hopelessly romantic lovers your heart will be lost with this wonderful story.
Trudy Heaton grew up in Ponden Hall on the Yorkshire Moors, the hall that was reputed that Emily Bronte spent time visiting alongside it’s library. Trudy is a huge fan of the Bronte sisters work, especially Emily’s and with growing up in the village and her later work as an archivist Trudy understands and appreciates the joy of keeping history and any artefacts revolving around the Bronte sisters alive and available for all to see.
When Trudy and her young son receive devastating news Trudy feels the place she needs to be to recover from this traumatic blow is to go home to Ponden Hall. The last time Trudy was at Ponden Hall and with her mother was 15 years ago and from thereon mother and daughter have had a strained relationship. With her son in tow Trudy hopes they will be welcomed with open arms.
Ponden Hall warmly welcomes Trudy back and she feels a real connection to the building and it’s history. With emotions high revolving around the loss of her husband Trudy is struck by new highs and lows with long lost discoveries from her past and that of Emily Bronte and also that of a mysterious young girl that may hold the key to secrets that could change what is believed of the heritage of Ponden Hall. I loved this side of the story with the discovery of forgotten secrets. The atmosphere in Ponden Hall and the land surrounding it fizzled with spirit and it took Trudy on a journey of hope, strength and belief.
The Girl at the Window is so beautifully written with the past hauntingly desperate to speak out changing the viewpoints of people and bringing much hope for the future. This is another WOW book and one that I predict will be a bestseller for Rowan Coleman.
