Once again I have been blown away by Amy Harmon's style of writing. I love the way her books draw you in until you are living the story with the characters.

"When Josie Jensen, an awkward 13-year-old musical prodigy, crashes headlong into new kid Samuel Yazzie, an 18-year-old Navajo boy full of anger and confusion, an unlikely friendship blooms. Josie teaches Samuel about words, music, and friendship, and along the way finds a kindred spirit. Upon graduation, Samuel abandons the sleepy, small town in search of a future and a life, leaving his young mentor behind. Many years go by, and Samuel returns to find his old friend in need of the very things she offered him years before. Their roles reversed, Samuel teaches Josie about life, love, and letting go.

Deeply romantic and poignant, 'Running Barefoot' is the story of a small town girl and a Native American boy, the ties that bind us to our homes and families, and the love that gives us wings."

This book was deeply emotional on so many levels, both when Josie was 13 years old, too wise for her years brought on by her mothers death when she was 9 years old and basically becoming the mother and wife all rolled into one..she had to grow up early and quickly to look after her 4 brothers and her dad. She was always different, clever, musically gifted and introverted...Samuel was an outcast of sorts he kept himself to himself until one day on the school bus when Josie was being bullied, he stood up to the bully in her defense after which they became firm friends. Josie helped Samuel through this dark, self destructive phase despite the age gap she was 13 he was 18..he then went and enlisted into the marines leaving Josie behind...

I usually love Amy Harmon books but this one is long and boring. I felt no strong attachment to either of the main characters. I read to the end in a desperate attempt to find some Harmon magic but there wasn't any.

This book is the best romance I have read in a while! It was well researched, it made me smile and cry and my heart beat with the romance of it all. The characters were all realistic and likable. You really felt the unfairness of the age gaps in the beginning but also the deep love the characters already felt for each other. There weren't any parts where I rolled my eyes at the predictability of the writing and I found it quite refreshing that it concentrated on the feelings of passion and not all the physical side. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves a good old fashioned love story!

A beautiful and intelligently written story of a slow building love between a young girl and a Native American boy. This is the second book that I've read by this author and she is fast becoming one of my favourites.

This was an awesome story on so many different levels. This isn't my usual genre. I'm more into historical reading, both fiction and non-fiction, but I wanted to take a break from losing myself in history, and I certainly got lost in 'Running Barefoot'. Despite it being written in the first-person, which is also something I don't care much for as I find a one-dimensional portrayal in a story too limiting and sometimes annoying, 'Running Barefoot' manages to wonderfully present each character in a wholesome way, which surprised me.
The story lingered on in my being for a long while afterwards; I couldn't so easily shake it off and move on to my next read. Josie and Samuel are presented to the reader as real people one would love to meet. It's really rare to find a book that isn't merely a book, a story to sell, but a real and poignant coming together of characters that draw your very soul into their story, almost daring you to believe in their existence. Another element that surprised me was the fact that although the story is set in modern times, it had a feel of life in the 50s or 60s, and I guess this might have been because of the location of the book's town, "a small town in Utah."

All in all, this was one enjoyable read, and I highly recommend it.

What a tale of two extremes. Genuinely wept at parts of this story. Poor Josie just seems to get knocked down by life so much. I can not imagine ever feeling as desolate as she must have felt. But oh to have someone like Samuel there to lift you back up. There is a lot to be said for a guy who will love you with quiet but blunt intensity. I myself find myself more at ease with guys who know when to be silent, and allow me to be silent, than guys who try to fill moments with noise and restless energy. I felt deeply for both these characters and I am so glad they found their happy ending.

Brilliantly written...not the 1st I've tried by Amy and won't be the last. A really gripping, moving and beautiful story...read it in a day because I couldn't put it down. Dare I say, as with another book I have read by this author, I found it a teeny bit on the religious side....not too in your face but it is definitely a factor. I'm not religious myself but am very much a believer in each to their own, so it didn't bother me...just noticeable so might not be everybody's cup of tea. Doesn't detract from the quality of the writing in any way for me as I don't think anything could. Wonderful story with believable characters. Amy has a way of making you feel for the characters, drawing you in to their lives, so much so for me that I didn't want the story to end. Another real talent...just great :)
