4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By I LOVE BOOKS TOP 1000 REVIEWER on April 9 2012
Format: Paperback
Love with a capital `L'. Not a sappy novel though. No. This is a well-structured, finely written romance. It made me look up Kalaw (Burma) where most of the story is set, on the map. It made me close my eyes, in the attempt of almost identifying myself with the protagonists, following them through their walks. An invisible witness to their feelings, breaths, existences. Opening up to life. Falling in love.

A short synopsis and no spoilers: Julia Win, a young lawyer from upscale New York, starts looking for her father, Tim Win, of Burmese origin, a prominent lawyer himself, who disappeared without a trace four years before. A working appointment missed, the trail of his last steps going cold and colder. Now frozen. He is never seen again. His wife and children, including Julia, gradually resign themselves to his disappearance, not without some inner battles. The feeling of abandonment mixed with bitterness never leaves Julia. One day, she finds a very old letter written in the 1940s by his father to a certain Mi Mi in Burma. An address in Kalaw is all she needs to follow her instinct and hop on to a plane in search of her father. Will that old letter, folded and refolded several times, be the key to her father's disappearance? Once in Kalaw, she is approached by a gentle but strange man, U Ba, who seems to know her although they have never met before. He also drops hints that he knows of Tim Win's whereabouts. Surprised and confused, Julia starts listening to the unfolding of an incredible story. Is U Ba really talking about HER father, covering the first twenty years of his Burmese life that nobody, not even his American wife, ever learned about? What was going on here?

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 decides to travel 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.
I was so enamoured with this story that I just couldn't put it down. This is one of the best novels I've read in awhile. I was mesmermized and my eyes were glued to every single word on the page. The descriptive narrative was so well done that I could see, hear and smell the sights and sounds as I traveled around with Tin Win and Mi Mi. I totally fell in love with this couple and will remember them for a long time to come. Don't miss out on this one, it was really very, very well done.
