Publisher Description

The highly anticipated final book in the internationally bestselling the Art of Hearing Heartbeats trilogy, a moving story about love’s power to transcend distances and heal seemingly irreparable wounds

Twelve-year-old Bo Bo lives with his uncle U Ba in Kalaw, a town in Burma. An unusually perceptive child, Bo Bo can read people’s emotions in their eyes. This acute sensitivity only makes his unconventional home life more difficult: His father comes to visit him once a year, and he can hardly remember his mother, who, for unclear reasons, keeps herself away from her son.

Everything changes when Bo Bo discovers the story of his parents’ great love, which threatens to break down in the whirlwind of political events, and of his mother’s mysterious sickness. Convinced that he can heal her and reunite their family, Bo Bo decides to set out in search of his parents.

A gripping, heartwarming tale that takes the listener from Burma to New York and back, The Heart Remembers is a worthy conclusion to Jan-Philipp Sendker’s beloved series.

“With a sensitive touch, Jan-Philipp Sendker explores the unspoken deep currents running beneath love: trauma, the disparity of privilege, and sacrifice for family and country. The Heart Remembers is a beautiful story enfolding a ferocious heart.”

— Shawna Yang Ryan, author of Green Island
