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.

Someone found him in a laundry basket at the Quick Wash, wrapped in a towel, a few hours old and close to death. They called him Baby Moses when they shared his story on the ten o’clock news – the little baby left in a basket at a dingy Laundromat, born to a crack addict and expected to have all sorts of problems. I imagined the crack baby, Moses, having a giant crack that ran down his body, like he’d been broken at birth. I knew that wasn’t what the term meant, but the image stuck in my mind. Maybe the fact that he was broken drew me to him from the start.It all happened before I was born, and by the time I met Moses and my mom told me all about him, the story was old news and nobody wanted anything to do with him. People love babies, even sick babies. Even crack babies. But babies grow up to be kids, and kids grow up to be teenagers. Nobody wants a messed up teenager. And Moses was messed up. Moses was a law unto himself. But he was also strange and exotic and beautiful. To be with him would change my life in ways I could never have imagined. Maybe I should have stayed away. Maybe I should have listened. My mother warned me. Even Moses warned me. But I didn’t stay away.

And so begins a story of pain and promise, of heartache and healing, of life and death. A story of before and after, of new beginnings and never-endings. But most of all . . . a love story.

  • By Amy Kitcher on 31 March 2017

    This is hands down the BEST book I have read in 2017. Told in the alternating viewpoints of Georgia and Moses, this is a story about love, gratitude and the power of forgiveness. When Georgia and Moses meet as teens their attraction is as all-consuming as it is dangerous. Events are set in motion which will change them both and the story follows their quests to come to terms with those changes. Woven into this is the thread of a murder mystery, which adds depth and urgency to the story and reinforces one of the story's main messages, 'don't judge people by what they look like on the outside.' A great read that had me crying for hours after I finished the last page.

    That feeling when you read a book. Palms were sweating. Heart was racing. Goosebumps. I got it when I read The Kite Runner. I got it when I read Life of Pi. I got when I read The Hunger Games. That feeling when you just know this would be an amazing film.Moses is a prophet. Actually, Amy Harmon is the prophet. Her lyrical, poetic storytelling had me spell bound. What a gift of a book.I sobbed so hard, my family thought something was wrong with me. There wasn't, I was just so caught up in Moses and his visions that the world around me ceased to exist. Moses Wright is the Bruce Willis of 6th Sense. My heart hurt for him and the evil prejudice that small minded people treated him with. Georgia Shepherd sees beyond the crack and falls for the beautiful man that he is.I have read lots of books this year and right now as the year draws to a close I found a perfect gem."I'm a very ordinary girl Moses. I know that I am. And I always will be. I can't paint. I don't know who Vermeer is, or Manet for that matter. But if you think ordinary can be beautiful, that gives me hope. And maybe sometime you'll think about me when you need an escape from the hurt in your head.""If I were to paint you, I would use every colour......You would have Crimson lips and peach skin and ebony eyes with purple shadows. You would have hair streaked with gold and white and blue and skin tinted caramel and cream, swirled with pink and shaded with cinnamon.""But there are laws. There are rules. Laws of nature and laws of life. Laws of love and laws of death. And when you break them, there are consequences. And Moses and I like a stream of fateful lovers who had gone before us and who would come after us, were subject to those laws, whether we kept them or not.""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.""When we dream we don't know we dream. In our dreams our bodies are solid, we touch, we kiss, we run, we feel. Our thoughts some how create reality.""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. Our story."Oh dear, I'm crying again.

    This book read really well and kept me intrigued until the end. I especially loved the second half of the book with the parts involving Eli - he was a breath of fresh air! Unfortunately, I feel like there was too much focus on the horses and Georgia's POV, which slowed the plot. I wanted more focus on Moses and his experiences, especially regarding his history, which we sadly didn't get. Nonetheless, this was a good book with a beautiful, fitting ending, and a fair few surprises along the way.

    I bought this book after seeing a lot of rave reviews about it from book friends. Well, it didn't disappoint! What a beautiful story. I was totally drawn into it, the characters were wonderful and the story at times was absolutely heartbreaking, but what a great read.

    This is such a clever story from the prologue to the end. I'm not great a writing reviews and only write them when a book really stands out to me. This is a beautiful story and so well written. The author is so creative and very unique. I bought this book because I have read most of the other books written by this author and loved them all and this book was amazing. The characters the storyline all of it just brilliant I would definitely recommend this book and I'd definitely read it again.

    I read a lot of books and rating them can be tricky, I try not to give really short books 5 stars because it doesn't seem fair but before I'd read this book I'd done just that, I was reading a series of novellas and I loved them even giving one 5 stars but then I read this book and there's just no comparison, there should be a rating for outstanding books which can only be used in exceptional circumstances.This book was recommended by a friend and while the synopsis sounded really good I wasn't sure it was for me, I'm one of those people who need a HEA and I wasn't sure I would get one with this book, so I checked the reviews and I found I a really good review on Goodreads which assured me I would be just fine, and it was right I was.The synopsis for this book is excellent so there's absolutely no point me adding to it, it's everything a good book should be and I can't praise it enough, I laughed and cried and cried, it's the kind of book that just stays with you.The writing is brilliant, it's the first book I've read by this author and it won't be the last, my advice to you is give it a try, download the sample and see for yourself.
