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?

Anne – 1921
She is the same, but not the same at all

"You must read the book, Annie. 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.

*****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: 5
Heroine: 5
Plot: 5
Angst: 5
Steam: 3
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5
WHAT 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!

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.

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 that I certainly fell in love with Thomas and little Eamon.

MY REVIEW: can also be found on my blog:
➽ KITTY KATS CRAZY ABOUT BOOKS
’WHAT THE WIND KNOWS’ is a full length historical romance novel by Amy Harmon.
If you are a fan of Outlander by Diana Gabaldon then without a doubt you'll love this book.
Where to even start with this review!! This was one of my most highly anticipated reads for this year, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it, as soon as I could start reading it I was transported to another world, I couldn’t put it down, I didn’t want to put it down.
Seconds, minutes, hours, life outside my windows and doors ceased to exist. This author is such a great story teller. Like no other she has you sitting in the palm of her hand, she captivates you as soon as you open that first page, she weaves her magical talent on you as she gently tells you the story her characters beg her to tell. This book was utter perfection, utter magic. Hard to put down, easy to love.
What the wind knows kicks starts off with thirty year old Anne Gallagher as she sits vigil beside Eoin her Grandfather who stepped in and raised her from an early age. As he lays dying in his bed in 2001.
As he's getting ready to leave this world he begs for Anne to take him back to his homeland Ireland.
Which she does promptly.
It's not long after his passing that she realises how much her Grandfather kept from her about his childhood, so many gaps that he never spoke of. Being an established author she'd always had the inclination of writing a novel set in Ireland surrounding the 'Rising of 1916.'
After arriving in Ireland with her Grandfather's ashes in hand she hires a little red dingy and sets off to scatter his ashes in Lough Gill, suddenly a mist appears out of nowhere, a man with two other companions holds up a pistil and fires at her hitting her on her side.
She gets rescued by a man who seemed to know her name, he was Dr. Thomas Smith, and is placed under his care whilst she heals. Awakening nothing is what it seems, she doesn't recognise her surroundings or the people.
Thomas Smith is the sole guardian to a wee boy who seems oddly familiar to her, it's this wee boy who mistakenly assumes it's his long lost mother returning to him some six years later.
They had never found Eoin's mother. They'd never found her body. They had assumed she was dead, alongside her husband, lost in an insurrection that had ended very badly. And now I was here, raising questions that were long since buried. This was bad. This was very bad.
But as a precaution for her own safety she adopts the woman's identity and falls into the era of 1921 seamlessly. I didn't know what had happened to Anne Gallagher of 1921.
