THE ART OF HEARING HEART BEATS By Jan – Phillip Sendker

The art of hearing heartbeats

The story is beautifully portrayed. on a quest to find her father after his sudden disappearance. Tin win and Mimi’s true love and respect for each other. Their love tenderly expressed. Emotions are great. But somehow and somewhere it doesn’t explain the rationale behind living life in USA for 50 years, having a family there and the sudden disappearance of Tin Win. Why didn’t he go back to his village in between and meet Mimi and his foster mother? A man who leads a quiet life and shutting away his wife and children. Not bothering to explain where he is going. When he was young he wasn’t given a choice but as he grew older he should have gone back to his village and explained. The foster mother is totally forgotten in the end. Touching story but doesn’t seem real. As a woman my heart goes out to both Julia’s mother and Mimi.
