Release Blitz - Review + Giveaway: What the Wind Knows by Amy Harmon

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?

"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 romance novels are amazing, but I find myself more drawn to her historical novels. It's probably because I am obsessed with history. What the Wind Knows focuses on the beautiful and heartbreaking history of Ireland. Amy has made me fall in love with this country and its people. This book was perfection from start until finish, it was so unique and original. I felt every sentence deep in my heart, and I couldn't get enough.

"I fell so fast, so hard, and so completely. Not because love is blind, but's not. Love isn't blind, it's blinding."

You'll probably have noticed that the main character time travels into the past, and I am kind of indifferent to that trope, but it was done very well by the author. The story had a great pacing and flow, and the author had really done her research. The character were amazing, and really brought the story to life. It was suspenseful, emotional, heartbreaking, romantic, hopeful and inspiring. I was on the edge of my seat and in tears half of the time. The story is so much more than just a Romance novel. Anne was such an incredible character and my heart wept for her and all the other characters. I know that my review is pretty vague in regards to the plot, but you don't need to know more than what you read in the synopsis. I recommend this book to everyone!

"It is as if we always were and always will be, as though our love and our lives sprang from the same source and will return to that source in the end, intertwined and indistinguishable. We are ancient. Prehistoric and predestined."
