An Amazon Charts and Washington Post bestseller. 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?… (mere)

What the Wind Knows - Harmon
3 stars

I like time travel books. I’m a dedicated Outlander fan. I liked this book, but I wanted to like it more than I did.

Historically the struggle for Irish independence is interesting and heartbreaking. It’s hard to think of a more challenging setting for a 21st century time traveler. It just felt too easy for the time traveling Anne Gallegher. I never managed to believe it. I kept thinking that I could have enjoyed the story more as a straightforward historical tale without the time travel complication. This book made me think of Susanna Kearley’s books. It was more of a love story than historical fiction. The love story was a sweet fairy tale that seemed out of place against the violence of the independence struggle.

Nerd that I am, one thing that I really liked were the poetical references to W.B. Yeats. I had to track them all done in The Collected Poems of W.B. Yeats. ( )

Lovely story, simply lovely. How it got on my shelf, still boggles my mind. When the MPG of romance shows too near the top, I usually pass on a book. When a book has time traveI as an MPG, that's a sure no for me. This book has both and yet I am happy this book somehow survived my scrutiny.

The writing, the story both beautiful. The research, top-notch, is always important for me. Harmon did her work and the end product is worth all the praise she has gotten for this book. An added bonus is the poetry of Yeats at the beginning of the chapters.

The love story, oh did it grab me in a way that I can only explain by giving you a snippet :

Anne is asleep now, curled on her side, and I can only watch her, my heart so swollen in my chest that I'll suffocate if I don't stay upright. The light of the lamp touches her freely, boldly even, brushing her hair and tracing the dip of her waist and the swell of her hip, and I am irrationally jealous of the caress. I can't imagine all men love their women the way I love Anne. If they did, the streets would be empty, and the fields would grow fallow...if all men loved their women 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 centered our lives on loving and being loved.

Fans of Outlander will love this one, I guarantee. ( )

A bit of romantic time-traveling fluff interesting mainly because it is set in the time and place of another book, Say Nothing: A True Story of Murder and Memory in Northern Ireland, I just read. ( )

Wow. What a read. This book completely takes you and involves you from the beginning in its sweeping epic narrative. History, time travel, poetry, romance, action...this book has it all.

Anne Gallagher travels to Ireland in 2001 to spread the ashes of her grandfather in a place that he had chosen before his death. After doing so, the most surprising thing happens and she finds herself in another time completely: 1921.

The things Anne experiences in 1921 change her completely. She is an active participant in the creation of the Irish Free State, as well as meeting some of the movements key players. Armed with the knowledge of the future, she is seen as an enigma by those around her who marvel at the things she appears to foretell.

This is probably one of the most beautifully written books I've ever read. ( )

Completely taken in!

I really had no real expectations for this book. I have to say it did take me a while to truly become engaged with the story, but once I was, I was completely enthralled! I especially love a historical novel that makes me want to stop and go to Wikipedia immediately to learn more and this was one of those! But the relationships and personal stories are what truly held me enthralled to the very end. And, thank you Ms. Harmon, for a very satisfying ending! ( )
