“It’s a story about finding where you belong as much as the romance.”
~ Under the Covers

You guys probably know this by now but I’m a massive fan of Amy Harmon and always love her stories.  There’s something so magical about the worlds and characters she crafts that just makes me want to crawl inside the pages of the books.  I was fully expecting to have this emotional reaction to reading WHERE THE LOST WANDER and ultimately it didn’t quite get there for me.  So in terms of my expectation, I think this book delivered something that felt different for me.  It was more understated and not as lyrical as I was looking forward to.

But that doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy this book.  While it didn’t meet my expectations I think it’s still a beautiful story that highlights the strength, courage and struggle of the time it takes you to. It’s a story about finding where you belong as much as the romance.  Both our main characters had their own personal things to overcome.  Their interracial romance was also another source of contention with those around them. I love seeing the strength it took for both of them to fight for what they wanted.

In the end I still recommend you check out this book.  It was a different kind of read for me from one of my favorite authors.  It was a beautiful story that definitely shows you something that’s not as common to see.  And I admit I found it even more endearing after reading the author’s note and her personal connection to this story.

About Amy Harmon

Amy Harmon is a USA Today, Wall Street Journal and New York Times Bestselling author of eight novels - the USA Today Bestsellers, Making Faces and Running Barefoot, as well as The Law of Moses, Infinity + One, Slow Dance in Purgatory, Prom Night in Purgatory, and the New York Times Bestseller, A Different Blue. Her latest novel, The Song of David, was released on June 13, 2015.

She knew at an early age that writing was something she wanted to do, and divided her time between writing songs and stories as she grew. Having grown up in the middle of wheat fields without a television, with only her books and her siblings to entertain her, she developed a strong sense of what made a good story. Her books are now being published in several countries, truly a dream come true for a little country girl from Levan, Utah.
