I accidentally discovered this sequel to The Art of Hearing Heartbeats and I was so excited. I absolutely LOVED both books.

A Well-Tempered Heart was one of my favorite books, It is the sequel to The Art of Hearing Heartbeats. This book is the story of a journey of self discovery taken by a young woman. The story line is believable, characters are real, and the writing style is a joy to read. If you enjoy books about other countries and life styles, you will enjoy this book. I highly recommend it!

Darling, all time we've been searching for home <br> When home was back the way we came. <p> All this time we were each other's antidote <br> When we were actually each other's poison. <p> All this time we sang each other sugar <br> When really, it was salt in disguise. <p> All this time we searched for the sun <br> When we ourselves were the clouds covering it. <p> And this is how we pulled the trigger on ourseves <br> With this phantasm we called <p> l <br> o <br> v <br> e <p> ~Dark &diams Shine <br> This is the first in a series called the Story of Us.

I did not care for this book. The Art of Hearing Heartbeats was excellent, but this was very disappointing and unrealistic.
