The Things I Know by Amanda Prowse
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.
I cannot put into words how deeply touched I was by Amanda Prowse’s The Things I Know. The story of Thomasina ‘Hitch’ Waycott’s journey to love and self-acceptance is nothing short of inspirational. As someone who has also struggled with physical disabilities, I felt an instant connection with Hitch and found myself rooting for her every step of the way.
Prowse’s characters are beautifully written, with their flaws and strengths making them all the more relatable. Grayson Potts is a breath of fresh air, bringing joy and hope to Hitch’s life in a way that had me swooning. Their chemistry is palpable and had me rooting for them to overcome the obstacles in their path.
What I love most about this book is its encouraging message. Prowse shows us that despite the walls we may face, we have the strength to break them down and achieve our dreams. The Things I Know is a reminder that our differences make us unique and beautiful, and that love is worth the risk.
I was moved to tears throughout the story, both in moments of sadness and triumph. Prowse’s writing style is captivating and allowed me to truly feel the characters’ emotions. The balance of drama, emotion, and heartwarming moments is perfect, making The Things I Know a truly charming read.
I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a touching, thought-provoking read. Thank you, Amanda Prowse, for writing such a beautiful and inspiring story.
