This is the story of Vida, a 19 year old who needs a heart transplant, and Richard, whose wife is killed in a car accident and donates her heart to Vida. The book is written in alternate sections by both of them in the form of a journal. For me it started off very strongly then lost its way a bit before picking up again. The story looks at the theory that people who receive donor hearts can take on some of the donor's likes and dislikes so Vida falls in love with Richard the minute she sees him.

Its an enjoyable read but I wouldn't put it in the same bracket as Jodi Picoult or Diane Chamberlain.
