Summary

My heart is less than 1% of my body, it weighs hardly anything; it is only a tiny piece of me, yet it is the part everyone finds most interesting.

Vivi Palmer knows what it's like to live life carefully. Born with a heart defect, she was given a second chance after a transplant, but has never quite dared to make the most of it. Until she comes face-to-face with her donor's mother, Grace, who wants something in return for Vivi's second-hand heart: her help to find all the other people who have tiny pieces of her son.

Reluctantly drawn into Grace's mission, Vivi's journalist training takes over as one by one she tracks down a small group of strangers. As their lives intertwine Vivi finds herself with a new kind of family, and by finding out more about all the pieces that make up the many parts of her, Vivi might just discover a whole new world waiting for her....

Transplant

My sister had a liver transplant 14 years before she passed away from something different. We were so grateful for her donor’s family. My sister loved her grandchildren so much, having a very hard life during her years prior to the transplant. After her transplant, she had some wonderful years, time with her grandchildren and her adult children.
When I listened to this book, so many thoughts came to me, mostly about all that is really involved by so many people when someone receives a transplant.
I’m so grateful for this book, because I have so much more understanding of the reality of it all.
