Teri Lyn's thoughts: The Law of Moses is my second book penned by Amy Harmon. I've had this book on my Kindle since it's release and with the recent release of The Song of David and the rave reviews it's getting I had to start. Now I'm sorry I waited so long. I devoured The Law of Moses and all it's subtle nuances. There were times I read certain passages and paragraphs two or three times to savor the text of this beautifully poignant story.
This is one review I'm completely at a loss for writing. The plot of this story was completely unexpected and I wasn't prepared for the heavy dose of emotion I received. I had no idea what the book was about in terms of the plot or who the characters would be. It didn't matter because what I read blew me away. I believed, I lingered on text and beautiful words. I wanted to live inside the pages. Having read and loved Making Faces by this author I expected excellent writing, angst, and an honest connection between two souls - I got these elements in spades.
The tale of the love between Moses and Georgia devastated me over and over again. It was sad and poetic and overwhelming emotional. The force of their story creeps up on you in a way Amy Harmon perfectly executes making you feel the blunt force of loss and yearning and love and friendship running so deep it hurts. This love is complicated and messy but it's so great. It's monumental, rocking both Georgia and Moses at their very cores right along with the reader. The story inspires, making you think twice about the greats in your own life reminding you to hold onto those we love as life is a very slippery slope.
I can't tell you anything else about The Law of Moses you have to read it and truly experience this story for yourself, savor it, believe in it and the message it sends. It's totally worth it, told from both the points of views of Moses and Georgia. If you like emotionally heavy, poignant, beautiful love stories - don't miss this one. The Law of Moses is a love story unlike any I've read before. I can't wait to see what Amy Harmon has in store next with the The Song of David.
