1960s Two sisters…
Diana, logical, controlling, desperate to be a wife and mother. Kate, an actress and rebel. As different as two sisters can possibly be…

2000s Two sisters…
Diana’s daughters Rose and Lily. Rose is a journalist, stuck on a treadmill writing about gluten intolerance and fearing she’s too old to get her big break. Lily, butterfly-minded, happily married, desperate for a baby. As different as two sisters can possibly be…

Two diaries…
The discovery of a diary reveals a secret hidden for a generation: Rose was adopted. Who were her parents and why didn’t they want her? She uses her journalistic skills to get to the truth. But what is the value of truth when a secret happened so long ago and the people involved are dead? Can the sisters put aside their differences to discover the answers?

In the course of a year, Rose will become a detective though she will never solve a crime, attend a murder scene or chase a burglar. She will be a detective of identities. But first, she must discover who she is. ‘Ignoring Gravity’ is the story of Rose Haldane’s own ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’

Coming soon…
‘IGNORING GRAVITY’ #1 – the first instalment of Rose Haldane’s captivating story.

  1. […] … when we are in Spain, with a basic Acer laptop and a Malm desk from Ikea at Malaga. This morning the sky is grey though rain is not forecast until the weekend. So I will take the opportunity and spend the morning sitting outside on the terrace, wrapped up in a sweater and scarf and supplied with copious mugs of tea. I’m copy-editing the manuscript of Ignoring Gravity at the moment, ready for the launch of ‘Britain’s Next Bestseller’ on March 28. I enjoy copy-editing, that must be the journalist in me. We used to proofread our pages so much that by the time the magazine was published, we didn’t want to read it ever again. It is a truth that other people’s mistakes shine out of the page, but it’s impossible to see your own errors. So I’m pleased to have other people copy-editing it too.
