A seemingly random list of 100 names is all journalist Kitty Logan has to go on to complete an article started by her, now dead, mentor and dear friend. Her own life is in a state of turmoil and perhaps if she can find the reason these 100 names are on the list she might help herself as well. An uplifting and thoughtful novel to curl up with. The hardback edition is also beautifully made and with the purple ribbons wrapped around the cover is almost a shame to open!

If you like Cecelia Ahern you might also like to read books by Jodi Picoult, Maeve Binchy and Elizabeth Noble.


One Hundred Names by Cecelia Ahern

The new novel from the bestselling author. Journalist Kitty Logan's career is being destroyed by scandal - and now she faces losing the woman who guided and taught her everything she knew. At her terminally ill friend's bedside, Kitty asks - what is the one story she always wanted to write? The answer lies in a file buried in Constance's office: a list of one hundred names. There is no synopsis, nothing to explain what the story is or who these people are. The list is simply a mystery. But before Kitty can talk to her friend, it is too late. With everything to prove, Kitty is assigned the most important task of her life: to write the story her mentor never had the opportunity to. Kitty not only has to track down and meet the people on the list, but find out what connects them. And, in the process of hearing ordinary people's stories, she starts to understand her own.
