Our Review

“It’s never too late. Those two words are the greatest, most powerful killer of hope mankind has ever invented for itself.”

If there’s one thing we know with an infinite amount of surety, it’s that we’ll always experience so many emotions when we lose ourselves in an Emma Scott story. Her words, her characters and her heartfelt stories have never let us down yet, and with In Harmony, she has again given us a story that touched our hearts and had us falling in love with her two main characters, Willow and Isaac.

“I hear it, Isaac. I hear it in every look, every touch. I hear you. The words of your heart.”

The parallel of Willow Holloway and Isaac Pearce’s tragedy with the play Hamlet was superb! We felt as though we garnered so much more of an understanding and love for William Shakespeare’s tragedy through Willow and Isaac’s own lives. The theatre setting was breathtaking goodness for these two theatre buffs! We were there in the audience witnessing the intensity, love, confusion, coming of age and heady emotions of first love and heartbreak.

‘I wrapped her up. Pulled her close. Made my armor her armor. Her blonde hair spilled over my hands and I made fists in it, holding her so tight. Christ, I’d envisioned touching her hair a thousand times but not like this.  Never like this. I held her, trying to absorb her pain. Even a little. I’d have gladly taken all of it.’

The dedication and prologue set the ominous scene for the pain of Willow’s story that was to follow, and it’s a story so relevant today and handled with sensitivity by an author who we know, felt the pain of Willow’s story as though she was a close personal friend. We know this because, that’s how we felt. That’s how Emma Scott made us feel! Willow was a strong, sweet young lady with a vulnerability that saw us connect to her.

‘To every woman who has whispered, shouted, screamed, or said to a friend the words me too; and to every woman who has not yet said the words aloud, but will someday, and be heard, this book is for you.’

Isaac is a phenomenally talented actor, from the wrong side of the tracks, drawing on his loss and his hopeless home situation which sees him desperately want to escape the confines of Harmony, a town that is slowly plunging him into despair. He has a plan and nothing and no one is going to change his mind.

‘You can’t look down on anyone when your own self-worth is ground into the dirt, shattered into pieces and then pissed on.’

Set in three Acts, this YA/NA love story also drew on other Shakespeare’s works yet was delivered with this authors own powerfully poignant, unique and emotionally charged words. We’re always guaranteed a gamut of emotions as Emma Scott details the hunger, hope, hopelessness and despair of these young lovers story, remaining transfixed, stomachs in knots, hearts in vices until the last word.

‘Having this untouchable beauty on my stage. And that was too much hope for a poor bastard like me.’

We’re rapidly running out of adjectives to express our feelings, admiration and relay the extent to which Emma Scott consistently delivers a story that’s unique and emotional – we can only hope our words make YOU want to 1click and experience this beautiful story that moved us and spoke to our hearts in so many ways. And that epilogue….absolute perfection! Another memorable winner from the enormously talented Emma Scott.

‘I burn. I pine. I perish.’


The root of all madness is an unbearable truth…

At seventeen, Willow Holloway’s life was torn apart. The happy, driven girl is gone, and she is left wracked by post-traumatic stress her body remembers even if she does not. When her father suddenly uproots the family from their posh penthouse in New York City to the tiny town of Harmony, Indiana, Willow becomes more untethered and lost under the weight of her secret. On a whim, she auditions for a part in the community theater’s production of Hamlet and unexpectedly wins the role of Ophelia—the girl who is undone by madness, and her love of Hamlet…

Isaac Pierce is from the ‘wrong side of the tracks.’ The town bad boy. Girls pine for his attention and guys are in awe of him. That he’s an acting prodigy only adds to his charisma. Isaac utterly disappears into his characters; the stage is the only place he feels safe from his own traumatic home life. He wants nothing more than to escape to Broadway or Hollywood, and leave Harmony behind for good.

No one can play Hamlet but Isaac, and when the director pairs him with Willow in acting class, they clash again and again—neither willing to open their hearts to anyone. But clashing leads to breaking, breaking leads to the spilling of terrible secrets, and soon Isaac and Willow find Shakespeare’s words mirroring their lives. When they are cruelly torn apart, neither know how this play will end—with madness and heartache? Or healing, love, and the discovery of who they are truly meant to be.
