Publisher's Summary

An Amazon Charts, Wall Street Journal, 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?

The historical details of Irelands history grounded this time travel fantasy. Saskia always does such a believeable job with accents. I look for books she works on.

Changes in narration made for a choppy experience.

The male's voice was louder than the females and too stern. The transition was a bit jarring.

JUST WOW!!!

Amy Harmon has written a masterful and magical love story set in 20th C. Ireland! The narration by Saskia Maarleveld (she is everywhere!) and Will Damron is rich and perfect and left me wanting more from this author! Enjoy allowing this fairy tale to unfold in different time periods mixed with Irish history, great characters and a slow burn... A for Amazing!

What the wind knows

This has to be one of my favourite books of all time. So incredibly beautiful.
The story is excellent, and the narration is so well done.

A good performance of a good novel

I think this is a well written book and well narrated, but the story didn't capture me enough to earn 5 stars. I can understand the appeal to Irish Americans wanting to learn some personal history, though.
