Publisher Description

From the beloved author of the #1 New York Times bestsellers Tuesdays with Morrie and The Five People You Meet in Heaven comes his most thrilling and magical novel yet—a page-turning mystery and a meditation on the power of human connection.

One morning in the small town of Coldwater, Michigan, the phones start ringing. The voices say they are calling from heaven. Is it the greatest miracle ever? Or some cruel hoax? 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, Mitch Albom takes readers on a breathtaking ride of frenzied hope.

The First Phone Call from Heaven is Albom at his best—a virtuosic story of love, history, and belief.

It was ... Okay

I loved a couple of his books, his early stuff, but maybe the magic is gone? Timekeeper was too contrived, and sadly, so is this book. It was predictable and pedantic, while it had the capability to be so much more. I'll eagerly await his next book hoping the magic of Tuesdays and One Moe Day will return.

Not Tuesdays With Moray...

Too long!
Too complicated with the 9 victims that heard voices . Author jumps from victim to victim which confused me. Who is he talking about now? Which deceased person belongs to which living person?

Then the Alexander Graham Bell interludes! I got it. The phone inventor, the calls etc. but, the metaphor added nothing and added to the confusion.

Read if you must to follow this author. That’s the only reason I bought the book. But, I’m rethinking that.
