REMEMBER ME WHEN THE COMET COMES...
On the day the comet came, a girl named Heloise was born. She would live a fine life, and inherit a fortune, but would meet a cruel, untimely death.

Years later, strange dreams plague Katya Nemcova, a teenager burdened with a rare and curious gift. Memories come to Katya in her dreams - images and stories from a past that isn't her own. Are these ghosts real? And what of the memory she seems to have of Heloise's treasures, two centuries old?

A novel that spans the history of Europe - from revolutionary France to the world wars, the Prague Spring, post Brexit Britain, and beyond - this is the irresistible, adventurous and affectionate story of a quite extraordinary woman, her exceptionally talented ancestors and the curious memories they share.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A compelling and unusual modern fable that's both wry and moving, full of melancholy and hope.

I loved it. It touched reality, it touched the mythical and spoke to the heart. Bloody brilliant

A gentle and uplifting tale of warding off apocalypse in a remote corner of Cornwall. - FINANCIAL TIMES on NOT FORGETTING THE WHALE
