The Summer of Impossible Things by Rowan Coleman

This is a very intriguing novel with mystery elements blended skilfully with the concept of time travel.
The science part (ie the time travel) is casually done – there’s no hard scientic theory included – but that’s not really important, as it’s a plot device rather than a concept that needs fully explaining in terms of the narrative.
The era is beautifully created (New York City during the late 1970s) and I really liked the characters, some of whom are not exactly as they first appear.
It’s quite a gentle read, and I mean that as a compliment. If you’re looking for an intriguing page-turner for a beach holiday or a flight, this book is a decent read.
