story She has had to overcome a lot in her life and put up withthan most My heart went out to her with how some people treat her and I just wanted to wrap her up and keep her safe of which I soon realised was exactly what she doesn t want or need.Mid twenties and still living at home with her parents on the farm, you could quite easily forgive Thomasina for dreaming of bigger and better things The farm and home life was just wonderful to read of though Apart from Emery who Isn t the nicest of people, I wanted to transport myself and join them around the kitchen table whilst they enjoyed the cooked breakfasts and their tea and cake It made me feel all cosy and warm inside.Grayson is another fabulous character If anything this story just has the best characterisation and made the story come to life I felt like I was going through the emotions of the characters and was totally wrapped up in the story Only problem with this authors books is as I enjoy them so much they seem to end far to quickly I could have spent hoursreading and spending time with these wonderful characters.The Things I Know is a heart warming and endearing read that you will not be able to put down I couldn t devour it fast enough as some of the characters will really pull on your heart strings A truly fabulous read and I hope the author will revisit the characters at some point in the future as they are ones that I know I will think of often All the stars for this one Loved it.My thanks to NetGalley for an advanced readers copy of this book All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway I fell in love with this story It s a story about Thomasina Hitch Waycott and her struggle in life to be accepted She has been made fun of and ridiculed her whole because of the way she looks Different from all the other normal people but her heart is tender All she wants is to be loved and cared for unconditionally I really liked the character of Thomasina My heart went out to her and I really hurt with her

been made fun of and ridiculed her whole because of the way she looks Different from all the other normal people but her heart is tender All she wants is to be loved and cared for unconditionally I really liked the character of Thomasina My heart went out to her and I really hurt with her when she was taunted so badly I wanted to be her friend and show her that she has value and is important I also liked the character of Grayson Potts He came into Thomasina s life and changed things for her The story really was like a fairy tale but there were also huge struggles to overcome Life isn t easy and it takes courage to let other people in after being so hurt in life This book took me on a journey with a girl who had been dealt a difficult hand when she was born I hurt with how much she went through I became emotionally involved with her character and really felt the heartache she suffered because of mean and vindictive bullies I also felt the happiness and strength when she found the fight in herself to stand up for herself I loved that Thomasina had her dog, Buddy, to be with her throughout the book He was a loyal and devoted companion through everything This passage expresses how much he loved her Even Buddy, in tune with her emotions, seemed to have lost his playful bounce and had earlier crept by her side across the yard with his head low, ears back, as if able to sense her malaise, so in love with her that her sadness crushed him I love that dog and his place in her life.This book is a tale that drew me in and took me through the gut wrenching life of a young woman just wanting to have what other young women had It also has the message that each person is valuable and that there is hope and happiness just by being who you are I thought the chapter endings were very unique and different They were the thoughts of Thomasina and the things she knows Each one was a bit of the chapter beforea kind of summary It touched my heart as some were enlightening and some were hard truth What I don t know is how different I am, and I also don t know how I can find this out And I know that some days I m happy and on other days I m sad, but that s the same for everyone, isn t it The Thing I Know is that this book will touch the reader in many ways It did me, for sure Thomasina and Grayson are two characters I will think about for a long time I want to thank Lake Union, Netgalley and especially Amanda Prowse for the honor of reading such a powerful, inspirational and touching story It is most definitely 5 stars I am writing this review with tears flowing down my eyes Every single line of this book resonated with me I could see myself in the main character Thomasina, who was born a little different with a cleft lip, weak heart, and deformity of hand and

who was born a little different with a cleft lip, weak heart, and deformity of hand and foot mine are not outwardly physical, but they are there Operated in childhood for the cleft lip, the doc did a terrible job with suturing and she was nicknamed Hitch for that scar I had for 3 heart surgeriesthan twenty years ago, and the doc messed it up Thomasina and I was on medications and was protected by her parents on their farm She lived a closed life, but her dreams were open and big and as vast as the skies mine are too Her life was lonely with most seeing her outward appearance and not her heart Then came Grayson, a man who was probably on the spectrum, but who knew what he wanted and he never lied He wanted Thomasina forever and ever This was their story, honest and true and oh so filled with love 2 people just perfect for each other who could see beyond what this world labeled as imperfections I have read most books by Ms Amanda Prowse, and the best are those which make me cry and where I see myself in her characters I cried and cried and I am still crying while writing this review Ms Prowse s writing was superfluous, the emotions in each word had me choking Thomasina and Grayson had their own problems, they lived and worked in different parts Their lives intersected and they found each other Their hearts beat as one But they had their own responsibilities, and it took great courage and a willingness to change to live their love Innocence was never better written, dreams never better foretold I sighed and swooned over the lines in this book I could hardly see my kindle with eyes that were constantly getting blurred Ms Prowse took my heart in her hands with this story She covered it with hope for a brighter tomorrow, she gave my heart wings to fly and my dreams to soar I could keep going on about what I saw in this book It was an experience seen and read with an open mind No truer words have I ever spoken than these Ms Amanda Prowse is the queen of emotions She is the only author in this world who can make me cry and smile at the same time My favorite forever Another endless cycle of depressing and bleak conversation and plot Started with a promise of great reading and quickly fizzled to the same old hamster wheel of a plot going nowhere and character not very like able This is of course my own opinion and may not be shared by others I received a complimentary copy of this book through Netgalley Opinions expressed are absolutely my own. Very heartwarming and may even make you cry The girl who was born different with her outward deformities who chooses to think she is not good enough for love, it is for others not me she thinks When she learns to stop judging herself and worrying about what others think of her she realizes shethan measures up and she just may find love as well Published June 11th 2019 by Lake Union PublishingI was given a complimentary copy of this book Thank you.All opinions expressed are my own. {READ BOOK} ä The Things I Know â From bestselling author Amanda Prowse comes a heartwarming tale of first impressions and lasting love Thomasina Hitch Waycott loves living and working on the remote family farm and BB But she also wants To see the world To own her own home To fall madly in loveBut 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 changeWhen 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 ThomasinaThe two form a bond that neither has had before It s possible that it could become something , 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 Land Degradation And Society and if her life is a fairy tale From Cameroon to Paris: Mousgoum Architecture In and Out of Africa then she s the ugly duckling Her deformed lip Nocturnum: Long Shades her crooked limbs and her weak heart have kept her from taking chances But that s about to changeWhen Grayson Potts comes to stay Gallery Bundu: A Story about an African Past he s unlike anyone Thomasina has ever met He s aloof Links to the Diasporic Homeland eccentric and exceptionally kind He s also totally unconcerned with the physical flaws that have always defined ThomasinaThe two form a bond that neither has had before It s possible that it could become something Given Time: I.
