what the wind knows by amy harmon

historical FICTION, 411 PP

What the Wind Knows marks the successful balance between teaching about the Irish uprisings of 1919-1922 and encouraging the reader to learn more about the events and the leaders, including Michael Collins, on her own. Generally I am not a fan of time travel, but Harmon’s story of Anne Gallagher’s to intersect with her ancestors is a delightful blend of romance, conflict, and discovering untold truths. Reminiscent of Outlander by Diane Gabaldon.

Where the Lost Wander also by Amy Harmon. Naomi May and John Lowry, I fell in love with you as you fell in love with each other along the Overland Trail to California in 1853. Amy Harmon is a master story-teller and she came through again for me with this beautiful story of a mindful woman and her strong, quiet man. I listened on Audible which placed me deeper into the setting. Each step along the sidewalk felt like I’d been transplanted onto the dusty trail.

That’s the thing about books. They let you travel without moving your feet.
