Imagine you can reived calls from Heaven. What would your reaction be? What would the world’s reaction be? This is what happens in the latest book by Mitch Albom. People in one small town start getting these phone calls from their loved ones who are all deceased. Is it real or is it a hoax? An interesting concept and this story will be enjoyed by the author’s fans, but I found it to be just okay. The writing wasn’t his best nor is the message or characters all that interesting. But I did like the little bits about the Alexandra Graham Bell and the incention of the telephone he added.
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.
