Reviews

  • "It's a beautiful story and written with such wisdom and kindness, and it also happens to be set my most favourite part of the world! It's incredibly smart, because like all good Gothic novels, it weaves together the past and the present and makes you realise just how much one relies on the other."

    Joanna Cannon, bestselling author of The Trouble with Goats and Sheep
  • "Rowan Coleman expertly and hauntingly brings Ponden Hall to life, moving seamlessly from the present day back to Emily Bronte's lifetime, then further back to tell the story of young servant girl Agnes. She deftly mixes fact and fiction, interweaving romance and history with a touch of treachery and obsession. This beautiful story of love, hope and ghosts is enthralling and utterly spellbinding"

  • "Spanning three timelines, The Girl at the Window is a spellbinding, brilliantly researched tale. Part love story, part gothic mystery it promises to both thrill and delight the reader. This is Coleman at her very best. A triumph"

  • "Whenever I read a Rowan Coleman novel, I am always taken on a great adventure. This story was wildly imaginative, vivid and atmospheric. The relationships were tender and full of love. I was particularly moved by the renewed friendship between Tru and her mother. My favourite Rowan novel so far!"

    Alice Peterson
  • "Atmospheric and haunting, The Girl at the Window is a beautifully imagined love story, and a poignant love letter to the Brontes, and Ponden Hall. Rowan Coleman's passion leaps from the page, and her characters - like her literary ghosts – linger long after the end. Wonderful."
