The Art of Hearing Heartbeats
Reviewed by- linda (2012/04/22, 03:48 PM)
This is a moving love story set in Burma written in a lyrical understated style. Itís about a young womenís journey to discover the reason her father unexpectedly disappeared from her life. While the main theme is a love story, itís also a coming of age story for a young man with an all -consuming desire to be reunited with his true love. A range of emotions surface as the story unfolds and the mystery is revealed. The descriptions of Burma are excellent, creating a strong sense of time and place and exposing the vast cultural differences between this country and ours. In summary Ė a unique and compelling story for those that enjoy a more literary read. Itís character driven with a rather languid pace that needs to be read slowly and savored for full appreciation.Back.
