The Knowing is the first volume of the Bulwark Anthology. What made me want to read the Bulwark anthology series is that the cover of the designs are so rare, being extremely different, which I think that's a bonus point in standing a paperback series out from any other books. Then of course the blurb on the back was a must read for me. Occasionally I love to explore different types of books , I'm always on the lookout for those different types of books that I normally read. The Knowing is a won ...more

‘How dare that woman say his beloved was a witch?’

For a famous author of children’s books to take on the nom de plume Brit Lunden in order to switch to adult novels, it seems impolite to praise her as Carole P. Roman. But the lady knows this world of literature and has written guides to assist new authors in the intricacies of Indieworld publishing, and she includes that beautiful photograph of her warm countenance on this site, offering those of us who have followed her rise in stature permissi

JB had known from the moment his eyes first met Ellie's that they were meant to be. His grandma had called what he experienced the knowing. He was drawn to her beyond anything he had before experienced. She was a rich Yankee, he a poor peanut farmer with only the promise of an unfulfilled dream as a football star. He was talented, but was certain he was trapped, forever destined to remain a farmer. Ellie wouldn't listen as he told her to find someone better, she wanted only him, and would even d ...more

Having read the Bulwark first, I met JB for only a mere minute. Not knowing anything about him when he helps out a woman and her husband after they had their children torn from them by..(well you have to read to find that out in Bulwark). The knowing opened up the insites about JB and his life. Getting to know him and his wife Ellie was just a Romeo and Juliet kinda love story. Was well written and flowed like a graceful waterfall. Ahhh such a beautiful told story! I am not a fan of romance but ...more

Enjoyed getting to know more about JB Stratton and Ellie. The almost Romeo and Juliet undertones, were a nice touch with JB being from the wrong side of the tracks so to speak then to them experiencing things together that normal people didn't. And the ending! Ah! Must read!

I would like to say up front that I enjoyed this short novel so much that I went in and purchased Bulwark-the original that started this anthology! I still have 2 more in this anthology to read and will definitely be purchasing the rest of them! Short and well written stories!

Soul mates from different walks of life destined by fate to be separated-but never far from each others minds. JB Stratton a Georgia boy, the son of a peanut farmer, sees Ellie, the daughter of a rich Northerner the first d

I love everything about this short book entitled Knowing. I love the romance between the two main characters JB and Ellie. Even though this book is fictional, it fills me with a sense of hope that I will know when a special woman comes into my life. The importance of getting a college education is a theme that is presented well in this book I appreciate that this book is not just about the romance between two people. This book is also about how a college education creates opportunities for peopl ...more

The Knowing is the first book in the Bulwark Anthology, which is based on the original book, Bulwark by Brit Lunden. This book follows the story of an older gentleman who played a small role in the original book. I enjoyed discovering more about JB's past and how he met his wife. I fell in love with the characters. I highly recommend this book!

The Knowing is a sweet love story. After reading the original Bulwark book, I enjoyed getting to know some of the characters a bit better and uncover some of the past. The extra mysterious elements added some more intrigue to what could have been a typical high school romance, it left me wanting to delve into the paranormal aspects of town and find out more.

This is the first book in the Bulwark anthology and is an individual character spin-off from the original Bulwark book. It is a heartwarming story with hints of paranormal that tells the story of JB and his wife Ellie. It is a beautiful story that spans the ages and incorporates some real-life characters seamlessly into the story. Beautifully written, with hints of West Side Story, this short book has romance, tension, fights and memories of past lives, all contained within the isolated Georgian ...more

This is the first of the anthogy to spin off the original book Bulwark. As it's by the same author I expected the style and characterisation to follow on nicely. It follows the story of a character introduced in Bulwark.

Ah, this is such a strange and yet sweet story! A small town Romeo and Juliet, with a side of love-through-time and sprinkled with supernatural :P

I really enjoyed ending :D
