What the Wind Knows
What the Wind Knows | 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?

Originally picked it up last summer because I was on an Outlander kick and this is much in the same vein.

IMHO, this is a more succinct version of outlander. The timeline is shortens, the characters are deeper and more compelling much faster, and there is a lot less melodrama. Basically, I found it to be a lot of the things I loved about the first couple outlander books, but without a lot of the things I didn't love. And a real fresh setting.

It's officially my winter break, I got through today's to - do list, and I'm kicking back. 🥳This book is a gentle read to start me off. Reminds me of Outlander and Susanna Kearsley books - time travel and history and romance.

The wind you hear is the same wind that has always blown. The rain that falls is the same rain. Over and over, round and round, like a giant circle. The wind and the waves have been present since time began. The rocks and stars too. But the rocks don‘t speak, and the stars are too far away to tell us what they know.”

Beautiful story. A bit predictable a few times, but still a lovely story. It evoked a wide range of emotions from me; I often could feel what the heroine was feeling. I sometimes don‘t care for time travel stories, but this one was well executed. I highly recommend.

This was literary ambrosia. I loved it and gave it 5 sparkling stars. It was beautifully constructed and the two main characters were well developed. My only qualm was that when I closed the book, I wasn‘t left pondering any character tensions. The plot wrapped up so tidily that it was a little convenient.

Got to love a pretty #seabreezestack 💙 I love the sea and still miss being close to it... Isn't that little fishing boat souvenir we bought in Hamburg (Germany) the cutest though? 😍

This stack includes two of my all time favorites and 5 star reads: What The Wind Knows and The Boy Who Steals Houses. 💙💛💙💛

https://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/2019/07/west-michigan-library-could-clos.... This makes me sad & frustrated. Not only are local libraries a wonderful place to visit for books as well as activities but the Michigan MelCat system makes it possible to check out almost any book at any library in Michigan. Tagged book is my most recent loan from MelCat.

Megabooks I‘m sorry. Kentucky has a similar system for ebooks. 5mo
Megabooks I generally only get ebooks from the library, so idk if one exists for print. 5mo
Texreader Read the story and hoping for the best for you. What does “millage” mean? I looked it up but couldn‘t find the word 5mo

Princess-Kingofkings @Texreader Millage is a tax rate based on how your property is categorized. 5mo
Princess-Kingofkings @Megabooks this isn't my library but it still frustrated me ~ for my own family, we have access to at least 4 libraries within 20 minutes that offer great WiFi and fabulous activities. I'm sad for this community if they don't recognize the huge benefits of a library. 5mo
Texreader @Princess-Kingofkings Interesting! Weird that it wasn‘t in the online dictionary. Thanks! 5mo
Crazeedi @Texreader did you look up the word 'mills'. Its used to calculate property and school taxes. Can't believe it's not in dictionary! 5mo
Crazeedi @Princess-Kingofkings Its a shame that people dont understand the importance of libraries and the ability to now access books online. Especially for people in rural areas, disabled, elderly... 5mo

Oh. My. Goodness. That. Ending! The time traveling pulled me in. I was mystified by it. Somehow if you try to overanalyze it, it will just make your head spin. The story was beautiful and unforgettable. This is my first novel with this author and I am pleased to say that I enjoyed it very much.

I had high expectations about this book but it didn‘t quite deliver. The novel is interesting and educational on the Easter Rising and life in Ireland at the beginning of the 20th century. As a love story, however, it did not evoke an emotional response...

So, I completely forgot about Amazon first reads this month. Crazy! I chose the tagged book about a woman who travels to Ireland to scatter her grandpa's ashes and is transported back to 1921. The Broken Circle about the author's escape from Afghanistan and Where the Forest Meets the Stars about a mysterious girl who claims to be from the stars and sent to witness five miracles also sounded really good, so I pre-ordered them.

Bookishthoughts I picked the tagged book also, Happy Reading! 11mo

If all men loved their wives the way I love Anne, we would be a useless lot. Or maybe the world would know peace. Maybe the wars would end, and the strife would cease as we centred our lives on loving and being loved.
