Summary

Eva Dawson is lost. 

Working as a photographer, she stumbles upon the world of urban exploration, and starts to find beauty in broken things. 

Meanwhile, her marriage is just as broken as the buildings she sets out to explore. Can she find a way to create a future, or is happiness a relic of the past? 

This book is an exploration in its own right, a fascinating journey through one woman’s attempts to change her life for the better.

Worth a read!

Great writing style, amazing narrator. The relationship in focus made me incredibly frustrated so many times though... All in all a great book!

Good story

This was my first book by J E Rowney. The story was good but Mark sure is a Wanker and there were times I was very frustrated with Eva. The author did a great job with the writing to evoke these emotions! The narration was fantastic.

A decent story

This was well written, it was just not for me. I wish there was more of the exploring of the buildings.

Enjoyable British chick lit/urban exploration

Derelict, my second read from author J.E. Rowney. Enjoyable British chick lit/urban exploration. 6-hours 59-minutes and 182 pages, but reads longer with the twists, turns & detail written into it. I was given an Audible copy of this book & am voluntarily reading & reviewing it. Wendy Wolfson's narration and accent add to the book's enjoyment. I look forward to reading more from this author.
