The First Phone Call From Heaven

by Mitch Albom

The First Phone Call From Heaven Synopsis

One last chance. What would you say? When the residents of a small town on Lake Michigan start receiving phone calls from the afterlife, they all become the subject of widespread attention. Is it the greatest miracle ever or a massive hoax? Sully Harding, a grief-stricken single father, is determined to find out. This is a story about the power of belief - and a page-turner that will touch your soul. The internationally bestselling and inspirational author of Tuesdays with Morrie and The Five People You Meet in Heaven, returns with his most moving, surprising and compelling novel yet. The perfect introduction, or re-introduction, to the masterful storytelling of one of the best-loved writers of our time.

The Good Book Guide Review

In the sleepy town of Coldwater, Michigan, Tess receives a phone call from her mother…who had been dead for four years…. Other residents start receiving calls from the dead, and as the news spreads, Coldwater becomes a pilgrimage site, swarming with people desperate to communicate with deceased loved-ones. Everyone is desperate to believe in this modern miracle. But one man, devastated by his wife’s recent death, had lost his faith in God and is determined to prove the calls are a hoax. Albom has written a wonderfully compelling tale about the power of faith, with an unexpected twist at the end that will leave you wondering….
