Publisher's Description

"What if the end is not the end?"

From the beloved author of the number-one 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 Mitch Albom at his best—a virtuosic story of love, history, and belief.

Author Bio

Mitch Albom is a bestselling author, screenwriter, playwright, and nationally syndicated columnist. The author of six consecutive number one New York Times bestsellers—including Tuesdays with Morrie, the bestselling memoir of all time—his books have collectively sold more than 35 million copies in forty-two languages. He has founded eight charities in Detroit and operates an orphanage in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti. He lives with his wife, Janine, in Michigan.

Editorial Reviews

“Albom has a nose for ‘thin places’: places where the boundary between secular and sacred is porous, and ultimate meaning is easier to encounter… This brisk, page-turner of a story [is] another winner from Albom.”
“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.”
“Beautiful and smart. Perhaps the most stirring and transcendent heaven story since Field of Dreams.”

    The Week It Happened...

    On the day the world received its first phone call from heaven, Tess Rafferty was unwrapping a box of tea bags.

    Drrrnnn!

    She ignored the ring and dug her nails into the plastic.

    Drrrnnn!

    She clawed her forefinger through the bumpy part on the side.

    Drrrnnn!

    Finally, she made a rip, then peeled off the wrapping and scrunched it in her palm. She knew the phone would go the answering machine if she didn't grab it before one more -

    Drrrnnn -

    "Hello?"

    Too late.

    "Ach, this thing," she mumbled. She heard the machine click on her kitchen counter as it played her outgoing message.

    "Hi, it's Tess. Leave your name and number. I'll get back to you as soon as I can, thanks."

    A small beep sounded. Tess heard static. And then.

    "It's Mom...I need to tell you something."

    Tess stopped breathing. The receiver fell from her fingers.

    Her mother died four years ago.

    In the latest novel from best selling author Mitch Albom, he was more has created a longing in the heart for so many who wish for just one more phone call or a way to talk to those who have died. Only it isn't just Tess who is getting the phone calls, it is others in the small town of Coldwater, Michigan. Those once lost in their grief are finding comfort in the short simple phone calls conveying that everything is perfect and that those loved ones are calling from heaven and they want everyone to know about it.

    Amy Penn was hoping to finally get the one big break all reporters long for and when she gets the assignment to investigate the phone calls from dead people coming to those residents only in the town of Coldwater, Amy wonders if she is being sent on a wild goose chase because if she fails, the station doesn't have to worry about what the ratings will do. No one knows who she is anyway. But will Amy find more than she truly ever bargained for? Is this God's way of leading her down a much different path then she ever dreamed possible?

    You'll have to pick up this book to find out. If you've read Mitch Albom's other books, The Five People You Meet in Heaven or Tuesdays With Morrie, then you will definitely WANT this one. It's guaranteed to keep you wondering long after you finish the final page. In my opinion, this one hands down gets a 5 out of 5 stars. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review and the opinions expressed here are strictly my own. This was a self purchase and being a huge book lover, I had to read this one. What a great Christmas gift!
