Description du produit
Revue de presse
“A beautifully rendered tale of faith and redemption that makes us think, feel, and hope--and then doubt and then believe, as only Mitch Albom can make us do.” (Garth Stein, New York Times bestselling author of The Art of Racing in the Rain)
“Beautiful and smart. Perhaps the most stirring and transcendent heaven story since Field of Dreams.” (Matthew Quick, New York Times bestselling author of The Silver Linings Playbook and The Good Luck of Right Now)
Présentation de l'éditeur
The First Phone Call from Heaven tells the story of a small town on Lake Michigan that gets worldwide attention when its citizens start receiving phone calls from the afterlife. Is it the greatest miracle ever or a massive hoax? Sully Harding, a grief-stricken single father, is determined to find out. An allegory about the power of belief—and a page-turner that will touch your soul—Albom's masterful storytelling has never been so moving and unexpected.
Readers of The Five People You Meet in Heaven will recognize the warmth and emotion so redolent of Albom's writing, and those who haven't yet enjoyed the power of his storytelling, will thrill at the discovery of one of the best-loved writers of our time.

One can easily see how the claim that so many folks from the same area had all received phone calls from "heaven" from their loved ones.. would put every person out there on the path to a little town in the middle of no where.. in hopes that they too.. could speak with their loved ones who have crossed over.
This book is not religious. I think that was the biggest surprise. It's about what may lay on the "other" side.. but, takes no mankind fixed religion over any other. It's inspirational without being preachy. Totally enjoyed it. In some ways.. It brought it's own comfort. And, any book that can do that.. is one that deserves an audience!
The plot centers on the sudden onset of phone calls from deceased loved ones received by a handful of people in the small town of Coldwater, Michigan. The voices on the phone are unmistakably those of these beloved spirits and provide short but powerful comments about life and the afterlife to the recipients. As word leaks out, reporters, photographers, believers, and protestors descend on the town creating their own chaos and questions. Are these calls really being made from Heaven? Are they legitimate? Do they prove the existence of a Heavenly afterlife? Are they some kind of elaborate hoax? Why would someone do such a thing? How could it be? Why are all the calls to residents of one area and always on Fridays? Why do some who long for contact with their lost loved ones not favored with calls?
If you enjoy your fiction with a big dose of inspiration, this book is for you. I found the mystery to be quite involving even as I was touched deeply by the feelings of the characters in this unlikely story.
Considered simply as a mystery story, the book delivers interesting and sympathetic characters, some believable red herrings, a strong sense of time and place, and a couple of unexpected twists and turns. Considered as an inspirational discussion, the book delivers a good number of "wow" moments, unexpected insights about spiritual matters, and pithy points of wisdom. Taken together, there is much to recommend in this book. Whether you believe spirits can contact people living physical lives or you maintain a skeptical or unbelieving attitude, I heartily recommend you get this book and read it with an open mind. It may change your thinking and it will definitely caress your heart.
By Paul McCright, Author of "Heaven Talks"
This story is enchanting, humorous, serious, and believable. The characters are finely drawn and soon become old friends. Overall an easy read and an uplifting one. The story itself will have you second guessing the verity of the phone calls but the ending will have you believing that those on the 'other side' are listening, if not communicating.
