Lo trovarono nel cesto della biancheria di una lavanderia a gettoni: aveva solo un paio di ore di vita. Lo chiamarono Moses. Quando dettero la notizia al telegiornale dissero che era il figlio di una tossicodipendente e che avrebbe avuto problemi di salute. Ho sempre immaginato quel “figlio del crack” con una gigantesca crepa che gli correva lungo il corpicino, come se si ...more

What a beautiful story! This is the second book I've read by this author and both have been highly emotional and heartfelt. Ms. Harmon's writing is flawless and the stories she creates will leave you breathless. Expect to be captivated. Be prepared to fall in love, have your heart broken and have it slowly pieced back together. Reading her books is the best kind of pain.

NOTE: If you want to go into this book 100% blind, then don’t bother reading any reviews. However, the genre of the book is not what it seems to be. The genre was something I wish I’d personally known in advance of reading. If you’d like to know what genre to expect from the book, then read on. Nothing I mention is a twist. It’s just literally what this book is about.

First and most importantly, I want to say that Amy Harmon is an incredibly gifted author. The way

“There are laws. There are rules. And when you break them, there are consequences. Laws of nature and laws of life. Laws of love and laws of death.”

Amy Harmon delivers a heavy, emotional story that for me felt like a cross between some of the ideas of the movies the Six Sense and The Horse Whisperer. Once again she delivers a well-crafted tale that is tear inducing and in completion will leave readers thinking on what she created for days.

A story of before and after, of new beginnings and never-endings. A story flawed and fractured, crazy and cracked, and most of all, a love story.

The main thing I love about reading an Amy Harmon book, is that no two books she writes are the same. Her writing is beautiful, her characters are so special and the stories are just phenomenal. I went into this book not really knowing what it was about. I stayed away from most reviews because I didn’t want to ruin any thing. So

Ms. Harmon takes her gorgeous writing and LEAPS through the confines of the New Adult genre with this one!

There are three things of which I’m certain will happen when I crack open an Amy Harmon novel: I will be granted phenomenal writing, a unique, substantial plot, and a cast of characters I can’t help but want to embrace.

The Law of Moses offers all that and more as it kicks off with a hauntingly unforgettable prologue, and follows through with a bold, one of kind love story that DELIVERS!

I have a lot to say about this one but at the same time I want to respect those that think my thoughts may contain spoilers (even though I don’t think they do). But nevertheless, to appease those who think they are but also stay true to my feelings for the book, I’ll put the rest in a spoiler tag.

The Law of Moses has one of the most powerful prologues I’ve ever read.
“If I tell you right up front, right in the beginning that I lost him, it will be easier for you to bear. You will know it’s coming, and it will hurt. But you’ll be able to prepare.”
When I finished the book I went right back to the prologue and read it again. I wanted to come full circle with the story.

this is a story of first loves and second chances, of fighting the bad with the good, of happiness and grief and how you cant have one without appreciating the other. this is a story of two people who, at some point, are incomplete and come to save each other. its a story filled with memories of a broken past and hope for a solid future. this is a story of life.

A Buddy-read full of gasps and theories and tears with my other half Ishmeen💙.

This has become one of my favorite books of all time, and I am now in the quest to read all of Amy Harmon works. A month has passed and I am still thinking on Moses and Georgia, this story has really impacted my life.

I never enjoy finishing or reviewing Amy Harmon's books. In fact, I'd prefer to *not* ever review an Amy Harmon book ever again. Because, the thing is, finishing her books makes me immeasurably sad.

It's like flying first class, then being told (for the remainder of your life) you will be flying in a doggy carrier within the cargo section of the plane... next to a goat.

This book deserves a standing ovation.

It needs to be made into a movie...and then 20 years later remade again.

I rarely cry when I read (I do a lot when I write, not sure why) but I sat out my living room sobbing and hoping I wasn't waking up the rest of my family who was asleep. Then after I finished reading those tears followed me to bed where I tossed and turned and tried to process what I just read.

I woke up feeling like I could cry again.

The Law of Moses is a story that will stay in my mind for some time to come. It's unique, powerful, intense and immensely beautiful with a dash of intrigue and wonder. It’s about embracing life in terms of what’s been bestowed upon you. It's about honesty, hope, love, pain, heartache and forgiveness. Beautiful horses and people who watch over us. It's about the bigger picture of our existence. The story is both inspiring

A story of before and after, of new beginnings and never-endings. But most of all . . . a love story.

The e-book of THE LAW OF MOSES is now available on Kindle Unlimited until February 4, 2018. AMAZON KINDLE

“Time softens memories,
sanding down the rough edges of death.”

“If you don’t love, then nobody gets hurt.
It’s easy to leave.
It’s easy to lose.
It’s easy to let go. ”

“I didn’t want more memories.
I wanted a future.”

The e-book of THE LAW OF MOSES is

“There are laws. There are rules. And when you break them, there are consequences. Laws of nature and laws of life. Laws of love and laws of death.”

Once again I find myself in an awkward situation where all my buddies love a book and I'm that black sheep in the pack, yikes.

Georgia loves horses and works with them doing horse therapy. Moses is a boy who once was a famous baby for being abandoned in a laundry mat by a crack whore mother, and he’s now a messed up artist that people tend to ignore.
When life throws Georgia and Moses together they can’t help but fall in love, even when Moses tries his best to avoid it. Georgia loves him no matter how broken he is, but there’s secrets that he carries that may push her away… If Moses doesn’t push her

Once again I find myself sitting all alone wondering why I dislike a book all my friends love. Did I read this wrong? Whatever it is this book is a no go for me. I felt no connection between the h&h. Moses was a huge asshole to Georgia. Georgia felt like a doormat. She throws herself at him time and time again. He pushes her away and is a jerk to her when he is around. It really bugged me that he took her virginity and then doesn't come around or talk to her for a month. Then when she goes to hi ...more

I wasn't prepared.

Despite the haunting prologue, the warning I was issued about what would unfold, I wasn't prepared. There is no real way to prepare for what lies within these pages. The gravity of what I'd be made to feel, how much I'd hurt and long and love. I wasn't prepared to drown in this book, in these words, in this overwhelmingly evocative story. I wasn't prepared to be changed. Consumed. Altered. What brilliant storyteller, Amy Harmon, has done here is magical. It's breathtaking. The

First of all, I need to say wow. That was an emotional roller coaster. You never knew what to expect. This book caused me so many emotions. I was happy, scared, devastated.

I went in completely blind, avoiding all spoilers with passion. I'm glad that I did that, because if I had known about certain aspects (view spoiler) I wouldn't have probably enjoyed it as much. I'll explain why, but I should probably hide it, because

Review posted at Ja čitam, a ti?

If you are fan of new adult novels, there is no way that you haven't heard about Amy Harmon. The most popular book she wrote is probably Making Faces, a story about group of friends, war and loss. I still haven't read that one, and truth to be told, I had a lot of doubts first time I noticed it on Goodreads. Back then, a lot of my friends read and raved about certain books, I got interested and picked up the book. In the end, I was left wondering is it me, them o

Okay. This is the second book I've read by Amy Harmon and I can safely say she is a genius. The way she crafts her words. The way she creates such lovable, flawed characters. The way she creates heart wrenching plots.

She is a genius.

I don't even know how to properly review this, honestly. This is a second chance romance paranormal novel. It's beautiful, it

I'm not going too much into the plot because if you read this, you need to experience it without any expectations.

This book deconstructed me. It wrecked me. I flipped the last page and I was a puddle of goo without brain function for about an hour. I just sat there. Staring and thinking, thinking, thinking.

If you think I might be exaggerating, I'm not.

I decided to read The Law of Moses without reading any reviews. I’m not sure if that was a good or bad thing really. But what I am finding with Amy Harmon’s books is that they draw out many different thoughts, feelings and emotions from the reader that I wanted mine to be ones solely from my own reading experience.

Amy Harmon’s writing is truly amazing. Her stories are always thought provoking and heartfelt. She challenges you to keep an open mind and an open heart. The Law of Moses is a unique s

So this is my third time attempting to write this review. I actually told my bestie I wasn’t going to review it, there are tons of fantastic reviews and I am clueless as to how to express my opinion without spoilers. She completely called me out and told me I had to write a review since I absolutely loved this book. This is my final attempt and I sincerely apologize for this lackluster review, because I absolutely adore this story.
