#bookreview The Things I Know by Amanda Prowse published by Amazon Publishing UK


Thomasina ‘Hitch’ Waycott loves living and working on the remote family farm and B&B. But she also wants more. To see the world. To own her own home. To fall madly in love.

But those are fairy tales, and if her life is a fairy tale, then she’s the ugly duckling. Her deformed lip, her crooked limbs and her weak heart have kept her from taking chances. But that’s about to change.

When Grayson Potts comes to stay, he’s unlike anyone Thomasina has ever met. He’s aloof, eccentric and exceptionally kind. He’s also totally unconcerned with the physical flaws that have always defined Thomasina.

The two form a bond that neither has had before. It’s possible that it could become something more, but Thomasina also wonders if it’s too good to be true. By putting her heart on the line, Thomasina may open herself to heartbreak. But she may also open herself to so much more.

My reading experience:

Firstly I would like to thank Amanda, Netgalley and the publisher for my free ARC.

These are the things I know –

Amanda has given the reader a wonderful protagonist called Hitch – a d nickname that she accepts, but her real name is Thomasina.

Hitch has been “left behind” by her brother.

Hitch wants to be in love.

Hitch would like to feel a sense of belonging instead of obligation.

Amanda gives Hitch a beautifully colourful journey.

You, dear Reader will be uplifted and delighted.

I highly recommend the new one from Amanda Prowse; a road full of hope and discovery on what looked to be a difficult journey. Just a sweet and delightful read set in Avon and Somerset in my part of the world.

Themes: parenting, bullying, alcoholism, diversity, loneliness, hope, friendship, love, taking chances, red shoes 👠
