Product description

Product Description


Take a moment to delve into tales from the dark side, have fun with fantasy, dabble in dystopia, and court danger in a little science fiction.

These tales touch upon death, grieving, war, fresh starts, hope, courage, change, choices, and encouragement.

And then, after all that, you’ll find the poems.

From the lonely echoes of an empty house to the soaring heights of unexpected love and joy and learning to live as free as clouds and water.

For each of us, a moment encompasses a lifetime and, yet, passes in but the blink of an eye. In but a moment, everything can change. And in this very moment, life beckons in all its potentiality.

When the shadows fall, what will you do?

(Please note: Some of the stories in this book have appeared in anthologies elsewhere.)

Book Review by With Love for Books
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

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.


If you like thought-provoking short stories and poems with a deeper meaning I highly recommend Moments.

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.
