The sequel to the
international bestselling novel The Art of Hearing Heartbeats
Almost ten years have passed since Julia Win came back from
Burma, her father’s native country. Though she is a successful Manhattan
lawyer, her private life is at a crossroads; her boyfriend recently left her,
she has suffered a miscarriage, and she is, despite her wealth, unhappy with
her professional life. Julia is lost and exhausted.
One day, in the middle of an important business meeting, she
hears a stranger’s voice in her head that causes her to leave the office
without explanation. In the following days, her crisis only deepens. Not only
does the female voice refuse to disappear, but it starts to ask questions Julia
has been trying to avoid. Why do you live alone? To whom do you feel close?
What do you want in life?
Interwoven with Julia’s story is that of a Burmese
woman named Nu Nu who finds her world turned upside down when Burma goes to war
and calls on her two young sons to be child soldiers. This spirited sequel,
like The Art of Hearing Heartbeats, explores the most inspiring and
passionate terrain: the human heart. Download and start listening now!
