The Art of Hearing Heartbeats by Jan-Philipp Sendker
The Art of Hearing Heartbeats

Peace..... that is the word that comes to mind when this book is mentioned. After hearing about how wonderful this book for a long time, I was thrilled to find it was our Book Club selection. This story met all my major qualifications for a 5 Star rating. Good character development, extensive location details and set in another country. And most importantly a deep love between the characters. I highly recommend The Art of Hearing Heartbeats. The minute i finished this book i ordered the sequel, A Well Tempered Heart. I cant wait!

Completely fell in love with this deep and moving WWIi story. I have never read an author that can paint such a remarkable picture of life during this most difficult time. I could visualize everything i was reading. I read alot, and Ive read alot of WWII storys. I read this story in April 2012, its stayed with me like a song you cant get out of your head. I would easily say this was the best book I read in 2012.

Wonderful family saga. Would make an awesome movie. This is my 10th book by Alice Hoffman. Its now one of my favorites. It had been a year since ive read one of Alice's. Her writing is as comforting and easy as an old worn sweatshirt on a cold winter day. I would highly recommend this book, and this author.

One of the best authors I have had the pleasure of reading in quite some time. I highly recommend this quick read. A difficult and heart breaking story about this war torn city. A wonderful example of the what the gift of music truly means.

On the Divinity of Second Chances by Kaya Mclaren

I really enjoyed this oddly unique, yet charmingly lovable little story. I love this authors style of writing. She does an amazing job of developing the characters, making you fall in love with each one, for a different reason. I would highly recommend this author to anyone who is looking for a escape from reality. Church of the Dog was the first novel by Kaya McIaren that I have read, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I hope she keeps writing, I cant wait to read another.
