My heart weighs hardly anything; it is only a tiny piece of me, yet it is the part everyone finds most interesting.
Vivi Palmer has always lived carefully. Born with a heart defect, she was given a second chance after a transplant, but has never quite dared to live life to the full. Until she meets her donor’s mother, Grace, who is hoping for something in return: Vivi’s help to find all the people who share tiny pieces of her son.
Reluctantly drawn into Grace’s mission, Vivi’s journalist training takes over. One by one, she tracks down a small group of strangers. As their lives intertwine, Vivi gains a new kind of family and a chance to create the life she’s always wanted.
