Publisher's Summary

Thirty years ago something terrible happened to Luna's mother. Something she's prepared to reveal only after her death.

In settling her mother's affairs, Luna finds more questions than answers until something impossible and magical happens....

Luna meets her mother as a young woman back in the summer of 1977. If she can truly travel back in time, she can change things. But in order to save her mother's life, will she have to sacrifice her own?

    "Genius"

    One of my favourite films is frequency as well as Groundhog Day and sliding doors so alternate reality stories always intrigue me. This one is genius. One of the best I have read in a long time and certainly Rowan Coleman's best yet. It just has to be a film, surely! Well done Missus! X

    "So lovely"

    I absolutely loved this beautiful book. Narrator is my favourite. And the story is simply delightful. Suspend judgement and just enjoy it.

    I really enjoyed this book, it was "different" and the narrator Imogen Church was excellent.

    "a bit repetitive but overall a good listen"

    Enjoy this and was curious to find the ending. a little repetitive and sometimes found myself shouting at it to get on with it.

    "Impossibly Enjoyable"

    An interesting concept and lovely characterisations in an intriguing story. Narrator mostly clear, but dropped to whispers sometimes.

    "Perfection"

    Beautifully written, sensitive and funny. A wonderfully heartfelt story about love and family. I am sad to have reached the end.

    "Brilliant"

    Loved the book from the start. Liked the characters in the family and friends. Liked the slow start to the romance of her and Michael. Couldn't wait to hear the next chapters. A brilliant holiday read.

    Story
    "Awful American accent"

    I'm sorry that I just couldn't get into this story at all. I normally love Imogen Church but the American accent was to coarse. It really irritated me. I like to listen to audible in bed, but the often louder accent took away the enjoyment of the book. Hence I'm returning it with still 7 hours to go.

    "Silly story..."

    Good narration, although quite quiet in places. Main issue was the story makes no sense whatsoever... the time travel that is supposed to be clever leaves paradoxes and plot holes all over the place.
