Product description

About the Author

Harmony Kent is famous for her laughter, and has made quite the name for herself … she’s also, um, a writer … and fairly well known for that too. She lives in rural Cornwall with her ever-present sense of humour and quirky neighbours. She has an even quirkier boyfriend and won't admit to her age.

MOMENTS by Harmony Kent cannot be read in one sitting - I did at first, but then I went back to savour every word, especially her poetry which is meaningful and thought-provoking, gut-wrenching, painful; yet hopeful and memorable.
Her short stories on the other hand, almost acted like a breather aid, refocusing my thoughts and enjoyment of reading short moments in life's journey. A highly recommended read, sometimes short and sweet, but mostly deep and full of meaning, something to ruminate on from time to time.

Isabelle is a fourteen-year-old girl. She's on the run from her abusive stepfather. She hasn't told her mother about what happens when she's at work. Isabelle sees no way out anymore and badly wants to kill this mean man. When she hides beneath a willow Isabelle finds help in the most unexpected place. What will she do with the knowledge that she's gained?

Isabelle is just one of the characters you'll meet in Moments. Harmony Kent's stories are dark, but always hold a glimmer of hope and light. She addresses topics that most people have dealt with in their lives, for example negative thoughts, grief and illness, but also second chances, choices and love.

One of the poems that I felt deeply in my soul is about dementia. My grandmother is suffering from this terrible disease and this poem brought me on the verge of crying.

In My Shoes

Footprints in the dust
the traffic of life
rubbing them away

Wandering
back in time
no longer present

A stranger wearing my shoes
each step erases
a little more memory

Harmony Kent has written beautiful stories and poems that made my mind go into overdrive. She encouraged me to think beyond the literal content of her stories and made me contemplate the deeper meaning of her poems. In a Letter to my Future Self she writes: 'Those that matter are the ones that love you come what may'. If you could have written a letter to you future self what is the one thing that you would've written down for sure? I loved the questions I couldn't help but constantly ask myself while I was reading Moments. Normally I'm not into short stories very much, but I loved reading Harmony Kent's collection. When I'm sending a postcard to someone I always like to personalize the card by using a fitting quote. I'm sure that I'll consult Moments on many occasions for the poems and the messages they contain.

4.0 out of 5 stars ... this author and can vouch that she is a fine writer with a very strong handle of the word ... 19 Jun. 2017
By Joy Nwosu Lo-Bamijoko - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have read several books by this author and can vouch that she is a fine writer with a very strong handle of the word and an impeccable use of it.

Moments, her collection of short stories started with some familiar shorts that I have read before, but one left me wondering about the state of the author’s mind as it was hauntingly so unclear. In the Seven Days, the author soliloquized with herself throughout. Some of these monologs were so subjective, they didn’t carry me along.

By the time I came to Arvum, the stories started to pull me in. Arvum was a great story about survival. From there on to the end, I had some very pleasant, interesting, and entertaining reads.

The shorts ended with a series of short poems. I am not a poet and do not really understand the mind of a poet, but these poems revealed the author more to the reader. I could feel and empathize with her struggles and could understand her search for peace. The poems really helped me to know the author better. From now, I will begin to pay more attention to poetry! In the whole, this was a very pleasant read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful collection... 23 May 2017
By Gwendolyn Plano - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Author Harmony Kent caught my attention when I read FINDING KATIE - a powerful story of finding one's self. MOMENTS is a glimpse into our interior life - of light and dark, of longing and letting go, of fear and trust. My favorite part of this book was the poetry because Kent's artistry with words left me speechless. Sometimes the lines, such as this one: "neither one of us looking for love both content to live and breathe one another", gave me pause; but other lines, like those in Blindsided, brought me into my own heart.

Moments, filled with emotion, desire, love, frustration, fear, and more. Don’t be surprised if you’re moved to tears with the way Ms. Kent takes you through the short stories and poems. It's a wonderful collection with something for everyone. It's a thought provoking read that I thoroughly enjoyed.
