What the Wind Knows

newfeb2I read this newest one by Amy Harmon, What the Wind Knows, last month, and have been dying to blog about it for any who haven’t read about it yet. Here’s the blurb:

The Smallest Part

smallGIVEAWAY ENDED: Winner is LoraDawn.

Sometimes I read a book, and it goes beyond my expectations. I want to share the wonder (which I will at the end of this post in a giveaway). I’m an avid reader and love books for the sake of a good story. So even if it’s not the best book ever written, I still appreciate the time, skill, and imagination the author put into it. Stories feed my soul. I rarely read one I don’t like.

But then there are authors like Amy Harmon. My hero. Every book she puts out is like the most divine, decadent feast I can imagine. Her stories are not just dessert. They are solid food for my heart and soul. Nourishing. Filling. I don’t finish them and hunger. They linger in my heart for weeks, months, even years. Their messages change me. Inspire me. Make me want to be kinder, stronger, braver. Continue reading

The Bird and the Sword

41ifwvwc9fl-_sx331_bo1204203200_I hope everyone had an awesome Memorial Day weekend. I spent time in Park City, UT with a bunch of family for a reunion. Family and food. Two of my favorite things all bunched together…so I loved it. A couple weeks ago, I finished Amy Harmon’s newest book, The Bird and the Sword. This book was awesome, and even though I’m surrounded by boxes and cleaning supplies that are shouting my name right now because we move in exactly one week (YIKES!), I wanted to do justice to this spellbinding piece. It deserves praise…even if I feel like Cinderella right now (emphasis on the cinder part). Continue reading

I’ve read every single one of Amy’s books so far, and have been touched in a different way by each story. Her writing style is inspiring; her characters always become good friends, and I finish reading and feel like a better person for having read her words.

Got Blue?

If not…you’d better get it. I’m talking about A Different Blue by Amy Harmon…my new favorite book. It’s the 3rd book I’ve read by this talented author, and it was phenomenal. This is a riveting story of redemption, and one I will definitely read again. I loved it that much. The characters became my friends, and after I finished, I emailed Amy and begged for a chance to interview her. Amy is more gracious and wonderful than I imagined. I hope you enjoy getting to know her better today.

Tell us a little about yourself, Amy.

I’ve been married for 19 years and I’m a mom of four – two boys, two girls, ranging from eighteen to three. I love to sing and sang with the Saints Unified Voices gospel choir Continue reading
