The First Phone Call From Heaven
Intimately following the lives of the chosen children, parents, and spouses of Coldwater whose lives are forever altered when they receive phone calls from those they are mourning... their dead loved ones. Sparking extreme media interest and frenzied support, as well as protest from those who cannot let go of the controversy of divine voices coming through man-made technology, these phone calls become the world's biggest spectacle—except to Sully Harding, who is past skepticism, and now is just downright angry with the nonsense. The sudden "miracle" is giving his young son false hope, and it's making it impossible for a non-believer like him to come to terms with his wife's tragic death; through town resources and the cooperation of his community members, he is determined to expose the phone calls as an utter hoax.
I've read several of Mitch Albom's books and looked forward to reading this one. It was a pretty good book but I was a little disappointed. After reading each of the other Albom's books I was left with a sense of peace and wonderment, but this one didn't do that for me.
