Book Review: What the Wind Knows by Amy Harmon

By Amy Harmon

Anne Gallagher grew up listening to her grandfather’s stories of Ireland. After his passing, she travels back to his childhood home to spread his ashes. Her visit results in her being transported through time, to Ireland, 1921, where she is mistakenly identified as her grandfather’s missing mother.

1921 is a very tense time in Irish history and Anne finds herself in danger. She also finds herself falling in love. Anne is suddenly faced with the choice to leave her old life, as a historical fiction author behind and remain in a time that is not her own, in order to follow her heart.

If you are a fan of Outlander, you will love this book! The story is beautifully written. It’s a powerfully emotional story. Anne is a wonderfully complex character facing an impossible choice. I enjoyed her very practical approach to trying to navigate a time period that is not her own. Her struggles with the unfamiliar. The story takes a wonderful twist in the end. I could not put this down.
