Friday Books: Heartbeats
The Art of Hearing Heartbeats by Jan-Philipp Sendker is an excellent book! To call this a love story short-changes the depth of this book. Yet it is a love story. There is so much more to it, however -- family issues, disability issues, cultural norms regarding views of people with disabilities, cultural norms regarding superstitions, exploring what love really can achieve and how it can transform lives, exploring what family really means.... all of this makes this little book an excellent read. This is definitely a 5-star book. Loved it.
