A Well-Tempered Heart by Jean Philipp Sendker

A Well-Tempered Heart

The sequel to The Art of Hearing Heartbeats, this novel takes place ten years later, when Julia Win travels back to Burma for personal healing, and to solve a mystery that followed her back to the United States all those years ago.  Like her father, Julia discovers an other-worldly gift:  she hears the voice of a woman in anguish.

I liked this novel even more than the first.  The unfolding of the spirit-woman’s story is heartbreaking.  And yet, as Julia discovers more about this woman’s past, a parallel tale of love and survival becomes the catalyst for her own healing. This is a beautiful, well-written novel.
