Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Very literary…A story of emotion, of magic, of belief, of many kinds of love, and of hope…Beautifully written.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
“Sendker’s follow-up to The Art of Hearing Heartbeats picks up the story a decade after Julia Win traveled to Burma, seeking her missing father…An absorbing, moving sequel that likely portends a third entry.” Booklist
