The Summer of Impossible Things by Rowan Coleman

The Summer of Impossible Things

Rowan Coleman

With echoes of the film 'Back to the Future', this particular time-travelling journey of discovery takes us back to the Seventies era with its disco music, drugs and sexual freedom. A family drama, combining romance and SF - plus themes of depression, alcoholism and drug addiction does not sound like a feel-good read, but the overall mood is uplifting. An ideal read for book clubs.

Love outlasts even death. It's present in every moment, even those filled with darkness; its never exhausted, it never gives up or wavers. It's the one force of the universe that will never be captured by an equation or your science.
