Genre: Fiction, Mystery
Several people in the small town of Coldwater, Michigan receive phone calls from people in their lives who have passed away. These calls claim to be straight from heaven and they want everyone to know that there is a heaven. The town is torn in half when some believe and others think it’s all one big, cruel hoax. The news goes nationwide.
A widower, Sully Harding, vows to find out what’s happening. His young son is sitting by the phone waiting for a call from his dead mother. Sully’s heart is breaking. It becomes more than a little personal for him.
I found this to be a very interesting premise and had my interest right from the start. I wasn’t sure what direction this story would go but I found it totally captivating. I listened to this one on audio and it was narrated by the author. He did a great job with it. Mitch Albom usually can be counted for an emotional book and this one is no exception.
