Kitty Logan is a journalist. She dreams to become the best one but turns out to ruin her life upside down. On one of her hard times, her new boss, Pete, asks her to write a final story prepared but can't be finished by her late boss, Constance. Constance has a terminal ill and finally passes away. 

Kitty realises that this is a very important project for her boss and her career as well. Unfortunately, it's not an easy thing to do. Kitty only has one information related to a list of one hundred 'unknown' names written down by the late Constance. Without any additional info. Kitty has two weeks to accomplish this project while she knows no one on the one hundred names list.

She tries her best to solve the mystery. She makes contact with several names. She meets them. Write their stories and try to find the connection among these one hundred names. Each character she meets just makes her more confused still she needs to solve this using her journalistic skills.

This is Cecelia Ahern's first novel that I read. I though she only writes romance stories. I bought this book because I was hooked by the synopsis at the back of the book and I think I made the right decision since this book is a gentle and heartwarming story. It's not only entertaining but also inspiring. At the end of the story you will understand why the book tagline is every heart has a story to tell.
