Publisher's Summary

The highly anticipated final book in the internationally best-selling 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.

So very moving!

Upon encountering the first of this series, The Art Of Hearing Heartbeats, it took me a little bit to really get into the story. Before long though I was deeply absorbed. At the end it was hard to let the richly developed characters go. I was so pleasantly surprised to find there was a sequel~ and especially pleased that it held up to the intricately woven quality of the first novel. When I entered this third volume I had more of a sense of how the author would unfold the story and dove in without hesitation. This book certainly did not disappoint. It gave me insight into not only human hearts and universal themes but a real interest in the richness of a culture so unlike the American one in which I exist. At first the change of the narrator and certain pronunciations distracted me, but not for long. Truly a deeply touching series!

Insightful

Such a moving book. I was so moved by the first two books. I didn’t realize there was going to be 3rd. Just the previous books I didn’t want them to end. Bravo.

Loved it.

Gentle, peaceful and beautifully woven. Evocative of a whole different world. Loved the narration too.

What a shame!!

I thoroughly enjoyed the first two books in this lovely series. The narration was excellent. As much as I want to finish the story I am finding this narrator difficult. His interpretation is hard yo listen to. His pronunciation of names different to the first two books. I don’t know which is correct. I may read this book to finish the story rather than listen to the audio. What a shame!!
