LIVE – THE FIRST GIRL CHILD by Amy Harmon

 

THE FIRST GIRL CHILD by AMY HARMON

Blurb:

From the New York Times bestselling author comes a breathtaking fantasy of a cursed kingdom, warring clans, and unexpected salvation.

Bayr of Saylok, bastard son of a powerful and jealous chieftain, is haunted by the curse once leveled by his dying mother. Bartered, abandoned, and rarely loved, she plagued the land with her words: From this day forward, there will be no daughters in Saylok.

Raised among the Keepers at Temple Hill, Bayr is gifted with inhuman strength. But he’s also blessed with an all-too-human heart that beats with one purpose: to protect Alba, the first girl child born in nearly two decades and the salvation for a country at risk.

Now the fate of Saylok lies with Alba and Bayr, whose bond grows deeper with every whisper of coming chaos. Charged with battling the enemies of their people, both within and without, Bayr is fueled further by the love of a girl who has defied the scourge of Saylok.

What Bayr and Alba don’t know is that they each threaten the king, a greedy man who built his throne on lies, murder, and betrayal. There is only one way to defend their land from the corruption that has overtaken it. By breaking the curse, they could defeat the king…but they could also destroy themselves.

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.

REVIEW – WHAT THE WIND KNOWS by Amy Harmon

SYNOPSIS

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.

*****Patty’s Review*****

*****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 is currently available. I’m sure Amy Harmon fans are going to fall in love with Thomas and Anne’s story!

LIVE – THE SMALLEST PART by Amy Harmon

THE SMALLEST PART by AMY HARMON

Heart breaking. Heart healing. Heart melting. The Smallest Part, a contemporary friends-to-lovers romance is now available on all platforms.

Blurb:

“In the end, only three things matter. How much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.” – Unknown

It was a big lie. The biggest lie she’d ever told. It reverberated through her head as she said it, ringing eerily, and the girl behind her eyes—the girl who knew the truth—screamed, and her scream echoed along with the lie.
“Are you in love with Noah, Mercedes?” Cora asked. “I mean . . . I know you love him. You’ve been friends forever. We all have. But are you in love with him?”

If it had been anyone else—anyone—Mercedes would have stuck out her chest, folded her skinny arms, and let her feelings be known. She would have claimed him. But it was Cora. Brave, beautiful, broken Cora, and Cora loved Noah too.
So Mercedes lied.
And with that lie, she lost him. With that lie, she sealed her fate.
She was the best friend, the bridesmaid, the godmother, the glue. She was there for the good times and the bad, the ups and downs, the biggest moments and the smallest parts. And she was there when it all came crashing down.

This is the tale of the girl who didn’t get the guy.

*****Patty’s Review*****

*****5++++++++ TO INFINITY STARS*****
{ARC Generously Provided by Author}

In the end, only three things matter. How much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.

 

 

As soon as I dived into this book, I knew it was something special. This book wrecked me and then filled me up with heartwarming feelings. THE SMALLEST PART is the kind of book that will claim a piece of your heart and no matter how much time has passed, it will remain unforgettable! Unbelievably heartbreaking with the overwhelming sadness that existed within the pages and yet by the time all is said and done you will be overcome with a sense of joy. The characters are beautiful, haunting, flawed, and overall AMAZING!! This is going up there as one of my favorites by Amy Harmon and definitely on my ”Best of 2018” shelf!

We are brought from present to past throughout the story which helped to explain the dynamic between the characters. And though the past was not laid out in chronological order, it never caused a bit of confusion. An unthinkable tragedy, in the beginning, sets the tone for the remainder of the story.

 

 

At eight-years-old, Mercedes and Noah became instant best friends from the minute he and his mother moved into their apartment complex. They were two peas in a pod. And then Cora moved into the complex with her parents and two quickly evolved into the ”Three Amigos”. They were inseparable for many years until they became older and feelings started to deepen and life’s ever challenging circumstances led to secrets that had to stay hidden. Mercedes had always loved Noah. He had claimed a big piece of her heart that no one else could ever steal away. But there was one person whom she loved enough to set her feelings aside for… Cora. Once Cora confessed her feelings for Noah to Mercedes, being the true friend that she was, she kept her feelings bottled up and tucked away.

Years later, Cora is gone and has left a huge gaping hole in the lives of those who loved her most. She also had many secrets that if ever revealed could destroy the people who she loved more than anything. Mercedes, ever the constant loyal friend, is there for Noah and his daughter Mia. There isn’t anything she wouldn’t do or sacrifice to help ease Noah’s pain. Her loyalty to Cora was admirable but at the same time frustrating.

 

 

When things start to turn passionate between Noah and Mercedes, they both are overwhelmed by guilt and remorse but eventually, the truth has a way of revealing itself. These two have loved each other for a lifetime. They were always two halves of a whole, but let insecurity and fear get in their way. My heart physically ached for these two because of all the years they secretly yearned for each other but missed opportunities kept them from true happiness. Are they going to seize the opportunity this time or let it slip through their fingers once more??

Here are my overall ratings:
Heroe: 5
Heroine: 5
Plot: 5
Angst: 5
Steam: 4.5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5

There are deep spiritual undertones in THE SMALLEST PARTwhich enhanced the plot that much more for me. A character from one of Harmon’s previous books plays a pivotal role in the plot of this story and even though I never read that book, I am convinced that it is one I need to get to and soon!

THE SMALLEST PART is currently available! Make sure you bump this up your TBRs!
