Bulwark- a wall or stockade that protects or sometimes hides the truth from the outside world. Bulwark, Georgia, isolated, hidden. Who knows what strange things can happen when the rest of the world can't see you? JB Stratton is alone in the world, and all he has left are the memories of his beloved Ellie. Dirt poor JB and wealthy Ellie feel an instant connection that is as intense and primal as the blood red earth of their home. Unseen roots connect them, pulling them into an impossible relationship. Will the memories of past lives help or hinder the path of their love? Based on the original novella Bulwark, by Brit Lunden, The Knowing continues the story of a town isolated from the rest of the world where the impossible becomes plausible, and logic is determined by reality.

REVIEW by LAWonder10!
This is a great addition to Bulwark. It gives an account of the beginning to the continuing love of JB and Ellie even after Ellie's death. JB is a key character from Bulwark. Knowing is better appreciated if Bulwark is read before this book.
This is a very intriguingly different horror-type "quick-read" series. Each novella is quite short, yet packed with frightening weirdness. This series is a fictional small town "tucked away" in Georgia, where dark unusual 'sightings" appear. Sightings one hopes do not become his or her reality!
The book is fairly well written and the characters are realistic, for the most part. The scenes are quite well defined and one can visualize them.
This novella "came together" as it progressed, but for awhile i felt slightly "lost". I feel the reader could have stayed more connected with the story if there wasn't such an abrupt separation of the two key individuals.
I feel it was still a touching story and kept the reader' curiosity up.
I offer a Four Stars rating.
*I was gifted this book with no pressure to post a positive review. This is my honest review.
