If you’d like to pick up a moving story this January we suggest Jan-Philipp Sendker’s The Art of Hearing Heartbeats. It is a suspenseful love story set in the exotic Burmese countryside, where a young American woman discovers the secret that lived in her father’s heart for over fifty years. Sendker’s novel will appeal to readers that enjoyed Laura Esquivel’s Like Water for Chocolate and Yann Martel’s The Life of Pi. A moving
and uplifting love story between a blind man and a crippled woman that defies convention and brings a renewed faith in the human spirit.
