    One thought on “A Good Kind of Knowing”

    1. It was a good read. Hit home. I lost a sister to colon cancer no too long ago so it was very emotionally charged to me.

    2. If you were to read the book blurb, you would notice that the book promises to be a book of great depth, but the blurb really does not give you a clue as to how far you will be pushed (emotionally) by the characters in this book. One woman, possessing a great kindness and ability to reach people, is a uniting force in a rural town. She runs a small music store, and thru music connects and earns the respect of everyone, from the town ruffians to country music stars. She is the epitome of the old [...]

    3. First word that comes to mind - Heartbreaking. Followed by fantastic! Kathy Harris needs to put the warning label right on the front page -- You will get sucked in and you will run a gauntlet of emotions. Sera Taylor is that woman that everyone loves (well except the crazy religious socialite, Beverly). She is genuinely interested in everyone and how they are doing, forming strong bonds with many of the patrons of her music store. When her world is torn apart by a devastating illness, the bond b [...]

    4. I received a copy of A Good Kind of Knowing by Kathy Lynn Harris in exchange for an honest review. Sera Taylor is our main focus, and is a woman who can bring people together. She lives in the small town of Lakeville, Texas and runs a widely popular music store. She’s friends with almost everyone, and the town is hit hard when Sera is diagnosed with cancer. The book weaves Sera’s story and her battle along with the town’s reaction and how they all pitch in to help save her store – and th [...]

    5. A Good Kind of Knowing by Kathy Lynn Harris is a truly gentle and inspiring love story. The characters really drive the plot with their array of character traits, quirks and interwoven lives. The relationships between the characters are lovely to follow as well as entertaining.There are many humourous, witty moments in the novel that had me smiling and several tender moments that allowed me to bond with the collection of characters. This was all possible because of Kathy Lynn Harris' meticulous [...]

    6. A Good Kind of Knowing is full of warm and wonderful characters that you'll soon feel as if you you've known forever. I enjoyed the descriptions of Sera's music shop and the goings on set in the heat and humidity of the Texas summer. The author gives us a true insight into small town Texas and it's colourful people. This book deals with a sad theme, but somehow leaves you feeling uplifted and warm. 4 stars.*Disclaimer: I was given a complimentary copy in exchange for a review. This by no means a [...]

    7. I felt as though I knew these characters. They were so well described, and true to what you'd expect from them, that they seemed like real people. When I saw the heartbreak coming, I had to put the book down for a while. I couldn't read the tragic ending of a vibrant life. Eventually, I was compelled to honor these characters by finishing the book. Really! Fictional characters were weighing on my conscience. Well done, Ms. Harris.

    8. I picked this book up two nights ago thinking I would read a few chapters. After chapter 8 I knew that wouldn't be possible and continue to read about these wonderful characters till I finished the book early in the morning. Thank goodness I had off the next day. This book is so well written. I think all of us would love to have a friend like Sera in our life.

    9. Loved it! A heart-touching story of a woman, a marriage, her friends and her town. Sera made a wonderfully huge difference in the lives of many people. A woman to be celebrated. Amazing characters. Amazing story.

    10. Second novel by author Kathy Lynn Harris. This is much more serious than the first one, and it took me awhile to get used to it. Harris evokes a keen sense of placed later of loss. A beautiful book.

    11. I received this book from a giveaway on . I loved it. It was wonderful to see how Sera affected the people around her without knowing it. It had me reflecting on my own life and impact. I thought it was well written and I loved the characters.

    12. This was a sweet and tender and moving story that was very well written. I was emotionally connected with the characters. At times I was smiling, at times I was sobbing. A Good Kind of Knowing is a truly inspiring and worthwhile read.

    13. I love this author!! This is the second book I've read that I just flew threw. It's do difficult for me to find a book I truly enjoy and don't want to put down, but she accomplished it again.

    14. Let me say that whenever I read a book about the realities of cancer, I am rather intrigued. So often people want to smooth over cancer and not make it seem like a big deal, but it is. And I knew nothing about pancreatic cancer. I would say I know somewhat how horrific it is now. I connected with this story, and Sera's attitude truly inspired me. If I die of cancer, I hope I can face it with the same determination and strength.I wasn't sure about this book when I started it, but it wasn't long b [...]
