The Art of Hearing Heartbeats

The Art of Hearing Heartbeats - Jan-Philipp Sendker A nice little love story set in a remote town in an exotic Asian country whose culture the protagonist is completely disconnected from (she is a typical New Yorker), and learning about it equates to her learning about herself. Clicheish and trite, although if you're looking for a quick read, this would do well.
