A house full of history is bound to have secrets... '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 Ponden Hall is a centuries-old house on the Yorkshire moors, a magical place full of stories. It's also where Trudy Heaton grew up. And where she ran away from... Now, after the devastating loss of her husband, she is returning home with her young son, Will, who refuses to believe his father is dead. While Trudy tries to do her best for her son, she must also attempt to build bridges with her eccentric mother. And then there is the Hall itself: fallen into disrepair but generations of lives and loves still echo in its shadows, sometimes even reaching out to the present... A hauntingly beautiful story of love and hope, from the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Memory Book and The Summer of Impossible Things Praise for Rowan Coleman and THE GIRL AT THE WINDOW: 'A completely enthralling read. It has so many layers and they all capture your heart. In my opinion Rowan Coleman is one of the best writers of our time.' Katie Fforde 'I'm so happy because she's written other books and its so lovely to find a writer you love who has a backlist' Marian Keyes 'This book will keep you wide-eyed and awake until dawn. A rare combination of sensitive and gripping. Like the ghosts of Ponden Hall the story will linger with you long after you close the pages.' Carole Matthews

MEDIA 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 *
"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" * bestselling author of The Man I Think I Know *
"A completely enthralling read. It has so many layers and they all capture your heart. In my opinion Rowan Coleman is one of the best writers of our time." -- Katie Fforde
"It's so lovely to find an author that you love" -- Marian Keyes
"This book will keep you wide-eyed and awake until dawn. A rare combination of sensitive and gripping. Like the ghosts of Ponden Hall the story will linger with you long after you close the pages."
"A breathtaking, heartstopping book about the triumph of love and the strength of the human spirit." -- Julie Cohen
"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
"Rowan Coleman has once again managed to a book so beautiful, I know the characters will stay with me for a long time. It's clear this was a labour of love for Rowan and is a perfect read for Bronte fans - capturing the same haunting darkness of Wuthering Heights - while weaving in a modern story of love, loss and never-ending hope."
"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." -- Hazel Gaynor * New York Times bestselling author *
"One of my favourite writers" -- Cara Delevingne
