Alex Voorman, a cerebral 30-year-old archaeologist, is married to the woman of his dreams - a beautiful, ambitious botanist named Isabel. When Isabel is killed by a reckless driver, Alex reluctantly consents to donate her heart.

Janet Corcoran, a young, headstrong mother of two and an art teacher at an inner-city school in Chicago, is sick with heart disease. She is on the waiting list for a transplant, but her chances are slim. She watches the Weather Channel, secretly praying for foul weather and car accidents. The day Isabel dies, Janet gets her wish.

Flash forward a year. Janet sends Alex a letter. She'd like to learn something about the woman who saved her life. But Alex isn't interested in talking to the recipient of his dead wife's heart. Since Isabel's accident, he's still grief-stricken. Meanwhile, a local blues musician named Jasper, the man responsible for Isabel's death, attempts to atone for his misdeed.

Irreplaceable is the story of what happens after the transplant - not only to Alex but within the concentric circles of family that spiral outward from him and from Janet. Stephen Lovely takes us vividly inside the lives of these characters to reveal their true intentions - however misguided - and gives us a stunning debut novel of loss and love.

    " Interesting read. Learned some things about heart replacement, as well as the emotional aspects of both the donor's family and recipients - good reasons for anonymity. Lovely is a good storyteller. Good book for book club as there is lots to talk about. "

    " This was a difficult read; it really took a lot longer than I was planning. The story itself is a really good story and really draws the reader in with a desire to know what happens next. There are a few moments in the book that are jaw dropping and others that make it so you can't put it down until you get some closure to the situation. Good book, but again, very difficult to read. "

    " Interesting book about the recipient of a heart transplant. Makes you consider your donor card more seriously. "

    " I enjoyed this book but parts of it made me a bit uneasy. I did like how the author went about explaining about organ donations as I knew nothing about them. "
