THE ART OF HEARING HEARTBEATS
Genre: Mainstream, General Mainstream Fiction
This international bestseller is set in Burma, now called Myanmar, a very isolated country where in many ways the 20th century has scarcely begun — let alone the 21st. The strong story shows how opposite worlds can brush and then connect through universal feelings and emotions. A strong, interesting, heartfelt story of love and understanding will keep readers glued to the last page.
Julia Win’s father, who was Burmese by birth, disappeared on a trip to Thailand. Years later, Julia finds an old love letter to him from Burma and goes there to look for him. She meets a man named U Ba who knew her father and the secrets he kept. Julia learns more than she ever expected about her father’s life, her own and life itself. (OTHER, Feb., 336 pp., $14.95)
