Promise me you ll read the book He loves you so much, and he s been waiting so long I paused over a picture of a grand house with trees clustered around the edges and a glimmer of lake in the distance What is this place I asked, breathless That is Garvagh Glebe Someday your great great grandchildren will come to Ireland They will walk up the hill where you are laid to rest, and they will sit by the stone that bears your name They will know that this was your home, and because it is your home, it is theirs as well.That is what Ireland does.It calls her children home Thomas Smith was the kind of man who would slip into and out of a room without drawing much attention He wasn t loud or obtrusive even as he moved and acted with an innate confidence He was simply Thomas Smith, as ordinary as his name, and yet not ordinary at all Read the story behind the story.Pre order available on KINDLE HARDCOVER PAPERBACK AUDIO and in MP3Copyright Amy Harmon WEBSITE FACEBOOK TWITTER INSTAGRAM BOOKBUB NEWSLETTER I started this book with a little bit of trepidation Irish setting, Irish Politics and History, Irish characters, Time travel although I did read Outlander and LOVED IT You know me by now if it is not done right, I will get on my high Irish horse about it I didn t even have to put my foot in the stirrup or even take the horse from the stable I LOVED IT Especially the history By the end of the story, my heart was breaking and I was in tears not so much for the characters in the book for the real characters who did exist in the early 1900s and lived and died for Ireland The history after the 1916 Easter Rising is just a garbled mess of opinions and blame The book is heavily referenced with the poetry of William Butler Yeats, a favourite poet of mine I spent my childhood summers in Sligo which is the neighbouring county to Leitrim, where this book is set Sligo is also where Yeats is buried We had books with his poetry in the house We often visited Lough Gill one year we even took a boat out onto the Lough what an adventure that was not a lifejacket in sight , visited Lisadell House I wanted to be the Gazelle , Sligo Town Lyons shop what a memory When my own children were born, myself and himself brought them to Sligo too, visited the grave of Yeats on many occasion I am sure they would kill me if they thought I was posting their picture here The book is set mostly in the 1920s, where Anne has travelled back to Ireland To Dromahair, the homeland of her ancestors Tragedy make for great stories We meet the leaders of the fight for freedom for Ireland, Michael Collins, in particular or Mick as he was called Michael Collins is either revered or reviled in Ireland Irish politics was complicated It still is I spent 3 days in Dublin last week where my son is studying for a Master s Degree in Irish History at Trinity College sorry, I just have to name drop we visited Kilmainham Gaol, Glasnevin Cemetary, The Gresham Hotel all of these places are mentioned in the book He wants me to take the fall when it fails Didn t he just, the bastard.I wish they had taken the key and thrown it away when they put DeValera in his cell in Kilmainham Born in New York ye can have him He wasn t executed with the rest of the Easter Rising leaders Always a wily fucker, he was I have come to terms with the fact that idealism often rewrites history to suit her narrative The truth is, the English are not all tyrants, and the Irish are not all saints Enough blood has been cast, to condemn us all but Ireland deserves her independence So, you are wondering if I did have any criticism of the book well maybe one or two but I could be completely wrong I didn t do the research I am not a historian I am leaving that to my son, who is studying at Trinity College, Dublin did I mention that already there is a reference to a Ferguson s Drugstore in Sligo I don t think pharmacies would have been referred to drugstores in Ireland back then One woman was giving Anne directions, when she arrives in Dromahair The woman was in her 80s, I think, and she told her to travel 3 kilometres Ireland used miles for many years before changing to metric and I know that my Mam who would have been around the same age, 80 90 would never have said kilometre She would still have used miles I think there was one thing The name Sean O Connell my name not the Sean , obviously, but the O Connell and there was no s ne fada accent on the a i.e Se n I have lived in Brussels, Belgium for 30 years but still have my Irish standards When my son was born, I told my husband not to come back from registering his name with the local Commune without the fada on his name Se n He didn t let me down and it annoys me to see the name without the fada I know, I know, I am nitpicking Death in Ireland meant a life in Ireland, not a life as an immigrant somewhere else It s funny Having being an immigrant now for 30 years, it is great that my two sons are now in college in Ireland one in Galway his father s Alma Mater and one in Dublin Then again, we instilled their Irish heritage into them from a very young age Read Irish stories to them, listened to Irish music, brought them home at least 2 or 3 times per year, threatened them with the wooden spoon, fed them Guinness from a young age you get my drift B al na mBl th There are too many lost souls in Ireland because of politics Collins, Yeats, Sligo the author said she fell in love with Michael Collins , while researching and writing the book I think I did too poor Mick 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 You can take the girl out of Ireland, but you cannot take Ireland out of the girl Where apples still grow in NovemberWhere blossoms still bloom from each treeWhere leaves are still green in NovemberIt s then that our land will be freeI wander her hills and her valleysAnd still through my sorrows I seeA land that has never known freedomAnd only her rivers run freeI drink to the death of her manhoodThose men who rather have diedThan to live in the cold chains of bondageTo bring back their rights were deniedOh were are you now when we need youWhat burns were the flame used to beAre you gone like the snow of last winterAnd will only our rivers run freeHow sweet is the life but we re cryingHow mellow the wine but its dryHow fragrent the rose but its dyingHow gentle the breeze but it sighsWhat good is in youth when its agingWhat joy is in eyes that can t seeWhen there s sorrow in sunshine and flowersAnd still only our rivers run free Mickey MacConnell 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 struggled to get through most of the book, BUT, Amy Harmon is a truly gifted author, and I decided to see this through to the end I am so glad that I did, because within the pages of this book is a beautiful love story that is fantastical and transcends space time Anne Gallagher is a famous author from New York in the year 2001 When her beloved grandfather dies, she journeys to his homeland of Ireland to spread his ashes on the Lough in the town he was born This was his last request before he passed away Anne was so overcome by her grief because all she had was her grandfather He raised her since she was six when her parents died Anne rents a little boat and rows out to the middle of the Lough to release Eoin s ashes and somehow a white fog appears She s disoriented, frightened, and somehow ends up getting shot and nearly drowns, until she is pulled out to safety When she comes to, she sees the face of a man who looks familiar but can t place where she has seen him before She s in and out of consciousness due to the bullet wound but once she finally comes to, she learns somehow she has miraculously ended up in her grandfather s childhood home, and the year is 1921 The man who saved her is Thomas Smith, a close friend to her great grandfather and great grandmother, and surrogate father to her grandfather, Eoin.The story is told through Anne s POV, and through Thomas s POV in his journal entries The history of the Irish Civil War is accounted extensively throughout Thomas s POV, and oh how I found it hard to stay awake As the romance slowly starts to blossom between Thomas and Anne, the history was still a huge focal point but their love story was what grabbed a hold of my heart How would these two be able to live their lives full of love and happy memories when they were from different time periods Would the present take Anne away from the only true love she s ever experienced How will their story end So much angst, and sorrow I loved the bond between Anne and the child version of Eoin, her grandfather The beautiful stories she wrote for him about his journeys to different places and times via his little red boat on the Lough were magical I really ended up loving this story.Here are my overall ratings Hero 5Heroine 5Plot 5Angst 5Steam 3Chemistry Between Hero Heroine 5WHAT THE WIND KNOWS releases on March 1st I m sure Amy Harmon fans are going to fall in love with Thomas and Anne s story This is so poetic, lyrical, heart warming, exciting journey starts with the mythical story of Niamh and Oisin, continues with time changing moments of Irish Revolution and we re catching glimpses from Michael Collins life story and his fight for freedom and finally witnessing an unconditional, timeless , amazing love story of Anne and Thomas This journey s the most important element is water which departs and unites our heroes There are so many amazing Yeats poems you may find in this book but my favorite part is written on Thomas diary I watch mesmerized, as her skin becomes smooth once , my touch forgotten I ve left a smudge in the crook of her arm There is ink on my fingers I like the way it looks, my thumbprint on her skin If I were a better artist, I would paint her in thumbprints, leaving my mark in my all favorite places, a testament of my devotion T S will always be my favorite literary hero And this will always be one of my favorite Amy Harmon s book. 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, fantastical, romantic, and brilliant I can t imagine the research that went into this novel, except that I felt the Ireland of 1921 alive on the pages This book is nothing less than a towering achievement. DNF 34%This is reading like a history book A really boring history book But somehow the author also manages to make references to things people during this time period as if the reader already knew all about it, which I absolutely did not and thus had to Wikipedia things Then the parts that do not focus on the Irish War of Independence instead focused on exciting things such as going shopping for clothing and toiletries I just can t force myself to read this any So disappointing considering how much I really enjoyed From Sand and Ash and The Bird and the Sword. Simply put Magnificent My first Amy Harmon read, and I absolutely get it now I absolutely get why this author s writings are so beloved She pens a gorgeous, unforgettable romance If all men loved their wives the way I love Anne, we would all be a useless lot While I went into this blind, and highly recommend you do as well, I will tell you this is a historical romance and a time travel read The setting is Ireland beginning in the year 1916 I share this information because I stay away from the time travel genre BUT what an exception this was to my usual experience It was completely mesmerizing.I also listened to this book It was the first time I heard a dual narration And, WOW I didn t want it to end.On a personal note, I live in a town settled by many Irish immigrants, and found it fascinating that it was was named after an area of Dublin mentioned numerous times this book Mount Joy 4.5 My favourite Amy Harmon novel so far RTC Buddy reading with someone who I have to speak to on a daily Frankly, I m in the mood to cry Amy Harmon will do.
