For this month, facilitator Donna Luzi will lead AE’s Book Club in reading The Art of Hearing Heartbeats by Jan-Phillip Sendker. This class will be held online through Zoom.
A poignant and inspirational love story set in Burma, The Art of Hearing Heartbeats spans the decades between the 1950s and the present. When a successful New York lawyer suddenly disappears without a trace, neither his wife nor his daughter Julia has any idea where he might be… until they find a love letter he wrote many years ago, to a Burmese woman they have never heard of.
Intent on solving the mystery and coming to terms with her father’s past, Julia travels to the village where the woman lived. There she uncovers a tale of unimaginable hardship, resilience, and passion that will reaffirm the reader’s belief in the power of love to move mountains.
The Southbury Library will hold copies of this novel for the AE Book Club.
