The Patricia Pownall UU Book Group – November 11, 2014

bookXXXglassesThe Patricia Pownall UU Book Group will be meeting on Tuesday, November 11 at 7 pm in the home of Kathy Kerns.  This month we are reading The Art of Hearing Heartbeats by Jan-Philipp Sendker. A poignant and inspirational love story set in Burma, The Art of Hearing Heartbeats spans the decades between the 1950s and the present.  When a successful New York lawyer suddenly disappears without a trace, neither his wife nor his daughter Julia has any idea where he might be…until they find a love letter he wrote many years ago, to a Burmese woman they have never heard of. Intent on solving the mystery and coming to terms with her father’s past, Julia decides to travel to the village where the woman lived. There she uncovers a tale of unimaginable hardship, resilience, and passion that will reaffirm the reader’s belief in the power of love to move mountains. In December we will be reading Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel and in January we will be reading A Teaspoon of Earth and Sea by Dina Nayeri. If you have any questions you may contact Bonnie Harper.  All are welcome.
