Letting In Light by Emma Davies

Letting in Light cover cmpressed


Format: Kindle

Genre: Romance

Little did Ellie know that the day she had her accident, her life would change forever.

After the accident Elllie decides to move to Rowan Hill where she can escape her past and try to work out what she wants to do with her life. It’s here that she meets a familiar face that she seen two times before.

Will comes across as a moody, anti-social person who enjoys his own company and looking after his estate – Rowan Hill. Ellie soon finds out that maybe he isn’t a loner, but has a dark horrible secret that stops him from being the person that he used to be.

Ellie slowly gets Will to start opening up when his brother Finn comes to visit for Christmas, but ends up staying for good, after being fed up of running from the past and wrecked with guilt over Will’s secret. When he gets to Rowan Hill though, he sees that things weren’t quite what they used to be, but is it too late to reconcile with Will and regain that brotherly bond that was lost all those years ago?

Although convinced that she is an interfering meddling busy body, Ellie decides that a new challenge is what they all need to start to get things on track. What better place to take on this challenge than Rowan Hill, where she enlists the help of the locals who eventually build up some lovely friendships and get Rowan Hill on the right track.


I really enjoyed this book from beginning to end and found myself wanting to read on and find out what Will was hiding. Even when you do find out what the secret is, there is always a little bit more to keep you dangling and trying to piece the jigsaw together.

I liked Ellie’s character and I’m sure a lot of people could relate to her and the thoughts that go through her head, especially if you have ever been in the same situation.

I could really relate to Will and sympathise with him for what he has been through. I felt from the beginning of the book that there was always more to him than meets the eyes but it left you wanting to know how his life turns out in the end. Whether it was intentional or not, I think Emma Davies showed that you shouldn’t judge someone based on how they act because things may not always be as they seem.

I love how the friendships and relationships begin to form, and how you get to know background characters as much as the main ones. This novel is light with a few dark twists throughout but a thoroughly enjoyable read. I really hope we are going to be seeing a lot more Emma Davies books in the future.

I would give this book a 4/5 – ready for the next chapter in the world of Rowan Hill
