Title: The First Phone Call from Heaven: A Novel

Author: Mitch Albom

KDL Description:

“I was just browsing in the book, and read the 1st chapter…and then I got ‘hooked’ by the last line in that chapter: ‘What happened next depends on how much you believe.’ I really love when Michigan authors write about Michigan—the audio book was actually produced in Detroit—Go Mitch!”—Laura at KDL’s Plainfield Township branch

Amazon Description:

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.
