Praise

“Enchanting…Young and old alike will enjoy traveling through the forests, farms, kingdoms and villages of Burma. The rich landscape is as captivating as the mystical nats (or spirits) that inhabit the pages of this book. Simple writing with complex meaning and rich culture, The Long Path to Wisdom is a great addition to any fairytale collection.” —Shelf Awareness

“Delicately balanced between cultural ethnography and poetic vision, Sendker’s collection of folk tales, legends and parables takes us on a journey to a lost paradise of the imagination and to a world of real lives whose substance and existence is but a twilight glimmer of all that it was.” —Bookanista

Praise for The Art of Hearing Heartbeats:
 
“A lush tale of romance and family set in mid-twentieth-century Burma…beautiful…bound to enchant readers.” —Booklist
 
“Magical…It’s stories like The Art of Hearing Heartbeats that show how our very existence is important…What a gift that is.” —Huffington Post
 
“Brilliant…Sendker’s novel proves to be a love story of the most masterful variety…Coupled with an unusual glimpse into the Burma of the 1950s and today, readers will delight in the emotional power of Sendker’s storytelling.” —Shelf Awareness for Readers
 
“A love story set in Burma…imbued with Eastern spirituality and fairy-tale romanticism.” —Kirkus Reviews
 
“Sweetly tragic.” —Library Journal
 
“No matter what I even attempt to say, I can’t possibly capture the absolute magic of this book. Like a spell, it haunts. Like love, it’s going to endure.” —Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author of Pictures of You
