LoveReading View on Second Hand Heart

A moving story about a young girl who has a heart transplant. Although the story revolves around Vida and her relationship with the husband of her donor this is much more about the wonder of what a life saving operation such as this can bring to the recipient. A story of healing and moving on and of love.

Second Hand Heart Synopsis

One girl: Vida is nineteen, very sick, and has spent her short life preparing for death. But a new chance brings its own story, because for Vida to live, someone had to die. One man: Richard has just lost his beloved wife in a car accident. He hasn't even begun to address his grief, but feels compelled to meet the girl who inherited his wife's heart. Someone else's heart: In hospital Vida sees Richard and immediately falls in love. Of course he dismisses her as a foolish child. But is she? Can two people be bound by a second hand heart?
