The way this book is written gives us such beautiful imagery of emotions. This is about what unconditional love really is. It wasn't the hot and passionate romance book but instead tale of a sweet and innocent love. Sometimes I still wonder why the main character went about things the way he did but in the end after reflecting about it I don't think I would change it. A very beautiful tale.

A beautiful story with riveting characters who give the reader a glimpse at stark human emotion. The imagery used by the author lets the reader see the sights, sense the smells, and hear the sounds of Burmese culture. Imagine being able to hear the heartbeats of the people you love - such an astounding book. I cried my eyes out.

In addition to my birthday gift last week, my son gave me his miserable cold (can‘t complain too much since the actual gift was tickets to Hamilton next month in Orlando). I‘ve felt generally miserable, out of sorts, and haven‘t felt like reading. Doing better today, and, with hubby off Christmas shopping, I‘m getting back to this wonderful book. I could post a quote from every page, it seems.

(Disclaimer: listened to the audio) this was a fantastic story of true love, beyond the physical attraction most call love. The story follows a young lady as she searches for her father and discovers a love greater than words. The story and scene-detailing are beautifully done and the entire book kept me captivated. The audio added some emotional queues and was really well-done.

“I speak of a love that brings sight to the blind. Of a love stronger than fear. I speak of a love that breathes meaning into life, that defies the natural laws of deterioration, that causes us to flourish, that knows no bounds.”

Reading this while waiting for my son and his family to arrive and thinking that this is a perfect description of a parent‘s love this Thanksgiving Eve.

I guess I've been in the mood for contemplative books about life! When you lose loved ones it's presumably natural to start thinking about the what's important in life, how short it is, and the best way to make the best of the time we have. This book did quite well! It's about love mostly..the power of love. It's also about our life journey, and how we don't really know who our parents were before they were our parents.

This is a beautiful book and I throughly enjoyed it! The love story between Tin Win and Mi Mi completely captivated my heart. Julia's journey to learn about her father's past really got me thinking. How much do we really know about our parents? They do so much before we are even a thought in their minds and how many of us ever really take the time to find out about that part of them. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I liked this story of a woman's quest to find her father (& learn his history). The Burma setting was evocative and Sendkker's writing style is calm and well-paced. I wasn't fully immersed in it but felt for the characters and enjoyed it as an original, interesting tale.

A Magical Tale set in Burma. What an amazing, intense, incredible, love story! I wept tears of joy, and then tears of sadness. And then I did it all over again. Beautifully written, elegant prose, and such insight regarding blindness, love, loss, and life! It did not and the way I was initially hoping but in the end it was just perfect. My book club choice for our second quarter and now one of my all-time favorite books!📖😊❤

A modern fairy tale. A literary love story. Mostly set in Burma. A beautiful example of how people from different cultures make decisions in vastly different ways. Had the pleasure of meeting the author at Booktopia Bellingham hosted by Books on the Nightstand and Village Books. #FlowersOnCovers #FeistyFeb

Dogearedcopy Hey! I was at #BooktopiaWA too! I moderated the first session with Jan Philip-Sendker! ❤❤❤❤❤ 3y
ocdIrene @Dogearedcopy Small world! I had not read his book before Booktopia, so I was ready for discussions that could "spoil details" for me, the unprepared. I cannot remember if anyone discussed the resolution or any little details, but I do remember leaving psyched to read this book. A book I probably would not have picked up without a bookish community to recommend it. Thanks for leading the conversation! I remember loving the experience! 3y

Dogearedcopy @Sweettartlaura Booktopia was a fantastic event run by @Annkingman & @mkindness (Books on the Nightstand podcast.) It was a meetup of authors, readers, dinners, drinking, and games!

"There is nothing, for good or for evil, of which a person is incapable." I knew nothing of this book when I picked it up (that's how I like it) and was carried away.

Ok I'm ten chapters in but bored as hell. The writing is so easy yet lacking any imaginative, descriptive flair. I hate all the characters, and I just don't buy it. The characters are unbelievable and relationships don't seem real. Sorry not sorry, but there's no way I'm finishing this one.

#photoadaynov16 #disabilities These stories each hold a character who has a physical disability but does not allow for that obstacle to define them. Certainly in the case of ALL THE LGHT WE CANNOT SEE, and THE ART OF HEARING HEARTBEATS, what might weaken those individuals , only strengthens the main characters. Both of those novels, are ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️reads and part of my all time favorite books 📚

Cinfhen @RachelO if you want an unforgettable love story, which is not corny, steamy and cotton candy fluff definitely read The Art of Hearing Heartbeats! It's absolutely beautiful in the most devastating way! We Are Not Ourselves is a really well written immigrant tale/ family saga ~ I highly recommend both 3y
