The First Phone Call From Heaven

by Mitch Albom —

This book is a page-turning mystery and a meditation on the power of human connection.

As news of these strange calls spreads, outsiders flock to Coldwater to be a part of it.

At the same time, a disgraced pilot named Sully Harding returns to Coldwater from prison to discover his hometown gripped by “miracle fever.”

Even his young son carries a toy phone, hoping to hear from his mother in heaven.

As the calls increase and proof of an afterlife begins to surface, the town — and the world — transforms.

Only Sully, convinced there is nothing beyond this sad life, digs into the phenomenon, determined to disprove it for his child and his own broken heart.

Moving seamlessly between the invention of the telephone in 1876 and a world obsessed with the next level of communication, Albom takes readers on a breathtaking ride of frenzied hope with this ultimate story of love, history and belief.
