    5+ stars! This book was something special. Quite frankly, it’s the first book in a while that blew me away. The storytelling is magical and it’s such a heart-wrenching, yet beautiful tale. I am such a fan of time traveling in books, especially when it’s done well, and this was done so well. It’s a historical romance and I can tell Amy did her research. This book was well thought out, smart, enthralling, and fascinating. I loved it so muc...

    *****FIVE STARS*****{ARC Generously Provided by Author} ”Don’t go near the water, love. Stay away from strand or sea. You cannot walk on water, love; The lough will take you far from me.” I was a little nervous about reading this book. I’m not a fan of ”Historical Romances”, and history puts me to sleep, literally! The majority of the plot of ”WHAT THE WIND KNOWS” is deeply entrenched in history, and I am not going to lie, I strug...

    4.5 -5 Stars Amy Harmon delivers a very well researched/magical story doused in Irish history and a loop of souls that forever connect. You must read her ‘Author’s Note’ as she cleverly shows a correlation between her own family’s history mixed together with famous patriots of Ireland. If you are a history buff, or a fan of fantastical love stories, or simply an Amy Harmon fan, then I think you will be as pleased as I was with Anne Gallag...

    5 “Outlander” stars “Don’t forget to read the book. He loved you. He loved you so much. He’s been waiting, Annie.”  Here I am once again in a tight spot trying to write that review. As for each Amy Harmon’s books, the task is daunting. There is so much to tell yet I don’t own a tenth of her talent.Maybe let’s begin with the more important: I read it in one sitting and it is a long book (120.000 words). I left my body’s...

    Wow. I'm sort of slack-jawed right now. I was drawn to the cover first--it has to be one of the most beautiful I've ever seen--and then a snippet drew me in deeper. Something about it resonated, and while fiction hasn't been so good for me lately, I had a feeling about this one and I was right. I know that doesn't tell you anything helpful about the book, except maybe to know that it is not a novel that lets go of you easily. Historical, fantasti...

    Reviewed on: Ashes Books & Bobs.What a delight, to begin the year with one of my most anticipated reads of 2019, by one of my favorite authors of all. Every Amy Harmon book leaves me in awe - completely astonished by the gifts she was endowed with, the feelings she's able to put into language my brain does not possess. Amy Harmon holds more talent in her little finger than most of us could wish to acquire in a lifetime. That's why anything I say ...

    **ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest review**"There are some paths that inevitably lead to heartache, some acts that steal men's souls, leaving them wandering forever after without them, trying to find what they lost."It is official, Amy Harmon is now one of my all time favorite authors. I am completely in awe and amazed with her magical writing and storytelling abilities. I love all her books and her contemporary and fantasy romanc...

    3.5 starsWhat the Wind Knows, a beautifully crafted historical romance, was full of details of Ireland during the 1920s. The novel was well researched from clothing to the political unrest that had Ireland in its grip, and it all added to the authenticity of the novel.If you love Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series you'll love this book.Without a doubt it had everything a time traveling historical romance should have. Full of historical and emotio...

    5+++ Stars!!!!!This book has ruined me for all other books! I'm still trying to wrap my head around what happened and my poor heart! How can it ache SO GOOD and SO BAD?! This was a beautiful story of love, loss, family and patriotism with one of the most unique storylines and had me feeling EVERYTHING! The concept of time travel has always fascinated me but it is certainly a difficult topic to get perfectly right, whether in movies or books. Many...

She has researched the details surrounding Ireland's complicated history, she's learned it's culture and ancestral language, and she can converse with a born and bred accent. Her grandfather has a particular vision for Annie's first step into Ireland and the timing never seems to be right. But when he dies, Annie must make t...

    This is why I have a black sheep shelf, folks. This right here.I'm going to start off by saying if you love OUTLANDER, or any time-travel-y historical romance, you'll probably love this. Even if I, a fan of OUTLANDER, did not. WHAT THE WIND KNOWS is a slightly more modern slip through the sands of time, or rather less of a jump, and Harmon's take on the concept drops us into an Ireland on the brink of civil war as her countrymen fight for indepen...

    ❝Don't go near the water, love, the lough will take you far from me.❞ WHAT THE WIND KNOWS was the perfect mix of history, romance and fantasy. Every word was exquisitely placed, every character perfectly crafted. These characters and this story are truly special. ❝I fell so fast, so hard, and so completely. Not because love is blind, but because ... it's not. Love isn't blind, it's blinding. Glaring. I looked at you, and from the very fi...

    I’ve never been to Ireland but after finishing What The Wind Knows it feels like I had. I’m a novice when it comes to historical romance but this book was calling out to me. I’m so glad I read WTWK. It has a perfect blend of history and fantasy thanks to the cleverly and brilliantly writing from Amy Harmon. Her prose is flawless. Absolutely effortless and intoxicating in her description of the beautiful country Ireland and her development o...

    This book is available on Amazon's First Reads through the month of February. I loved this book with my whole heart and I want everyone to fall in love with this book. If I could stand on a mountain and shout it to the world...I would. Consider this my mountain. "Anne is asleep now, curled on her side, and I can only watch her, my heart so swollen in my chest that I'll suffocate if I don't stay upright. The light of the lamp touches her freely, b...

    4.5/ 5 starsInitial thoughts: I am not a big fan of historical books. But I love Amy Harmon and this cover is stunning!This book takes place in 2001 and 1921. Ireland is everything in this book! The author blends real life events with an incredible romance. What an original and compelling book!This book starts out in 2001. The narrator is thirty year old Annie (1st person POV - she is a famous author).Historical is not my thing. So I was actually...

    Thanks to NetGalley and Lake Union publishing for an e-Arc in exchange for an honest review. Such a beautiful story! I mean, who can resist a time travel novel? I really cannot and Amy Harmon weaves a beautiful tale of a 21st century woman who finds herself traveling back to 1920's Ireland. Just like main protagonist Anne, I was swept away into the political intrigues of a country that wished to get rid of its British oppressor. Not to mention t...

    I received this from netgalley.com in exchange for a review. Anne Gallagher is heartbroken after her grandfather dies. She travels to Ireland to spread his ashes in the lake and is transported back to 1921 where he is 6 yrs old. Good story and great characters - both fictional and real life historical figures. I love historical fiction sagas that wrap me into the story and teach me a little bit of the history.4.25 ☆

    "I told you. You told me. Only the wind knows which truly comes first."Mystery. History. Time travel. Romance. Heart ache. Want.Those are all of the words that come to my mind when I sit back and think of this beautiful story. When it comes to Amy Harmon though, many more words come to mind. Sunshine. Artistic. Talented. Soul-filled. Understanding. But should I really expect anything less? No. At this point, I should not. I know that and I know ...

    Not enough stars!! The wind and water know all the earth's secrets. They've seen and heard all that has ever been said or done. And if you listen, they will tell you all the stories and sing every song. From the moment I read the prologue I knew this story was going to hit me harder than any other book I've read lately. And I was so right. In fact, I'm pretty sure this story was written just for me. There are small details that connect me and I c...
