Well-Tempered Heart
Well-Tempered Heart | Jan-Philipp Sendker
The sequel to the international best-selling novel "The Art of Hearing Heartbeats." "" Almost ten years have passed since Julia Win came back from Burma, her father s native country. Though she is a successful Manhattan lawyer, her private life is at a crossroads; her boyfriend has recently left her and she is, despite her wealth, unhappy with her professional life. Julia is lost and exhausted. One day, in the middle of an important business meeting, she hears a stranger s voice in her head that causes her to leave the office without explanation. In the following days, her crisis only deepens. Not only does the female voice refuse to disappear, but it starts to ask questions Julia has been trying to avoid. Why do you live alone? To whom do you feel close? What do you want in life? Interwoven with Julia s story is that of a Burmese woman named Nu Nu who finds her world turned upside down when Burma goes to war and calls on her two young sons to be child soldiers. This spirited sequel, like "The Art of Hearing Heartbeats," explores the most inspiring and passionate terrain: the human heart."

“...there were themes one could neither paint nor put into words. Themes so vast that only composers could even approach them. If at all. All other artists must practice humility before them.” 🙌🏼

A well-tempered heart is the sequel to The Art of hearing heartbeats. Equally beautiful and enthralling. I enjoyed it almost as much as the art of hearing heartbeats. Almost. Another very compelling, moving story. I just wish it had one or two more chapters. It has one of those endings that leave you wanting to know exactly what happens next instead of being left wondering! Still, I absolutely loved this book!

MrBook Good review 😊👍🏻. 3y

A good sequel to the art of hearing heartbeats. I read this in 24 hours. Makes me want to visit Burma more now. U Ba is a awesome character. Good storyline that kept me interested. Would recommend.

I loved The Art of Hearing Heartbeats losing myself in the story. Yet in the sequel, A Well Tempered Heart, I keep hoping to get lost in the same way but alas I have less than an hour to go. I'm listening to the audio book so perhaps it is the reader that's preventing the sweet abandon.
