Book Review: What the Wind Knows by Amy Harmon



WHAT THE WIND KNOWS
Author: Amy Harmon
Reading Level: Adult
Genre: Historical Romance
Released: March 1, 2019


In an unforgettable love story, a woman’s impossible journey through the ages could change everything…

Anne Gallagher grew up enchanted by her grandfather’s stories of Ireland. Heartbroken at his death, she travels to his childhood home to spread his ashes. There, overcome with memories of the man she adored and consumed by a history she never knew, she is pulled into another time.

The Ireland of 1921, teetering on the edge of war, is a dangerous place in which to awaken. But there Anne finds herself, hurt, disoriented, and under the care of Dr. Thomas Smith, guardian to a young boy who is oddly familiar. Mistaken for the boy’s long-missing mother, Anne adopts her identity, convinced the woman’s disappearance is connected to her own.

As tensions rise, Thomas joins the struggle for Ireland’s independence and Anne is drawn into the conflict beside him. Caught between history and her heart, she must decide whether she’s willing to let go of the life she knew for a love she never thought she’d find. But in the end, is the choice actually hers to make?

Amy Harmon is one of my favorite authors so when I saw she had a new book coming out, I was so excited.  I will read anything she ever writes.  What the Wind Knows is a historical romance, and while I don't necessarily love historical romances, I LOVE THIS BOOK.  This is the second historical romance I have devoured from Amy Harmon.

I am completely blown away.  It is a struggle to write this review because I am at a loss for words.  The story begins with Anne Gallagher dealing with the devastating loss of her grandfather.  He is such an important person in her life that this loss leaves her completely heart broken.  Her grandfather, Eoin wants her to travel to his hometown of Ireland to spread his ashes.  So that's exactly what she does, but it is not quite the trip she had expected.

This book was such an amazing, heart wrenching book that it has absolutely left a mark on my heart, forever.  This story has made it to my list of all time favorites.  I am giving this book five stars! I AM SHOUTING FROM THE ROOFTOPS to go get this book, you will NOT be disappointed.
