The First Phone Call from Heaven (Large Print / Paperback)
One morning in the small town of Coldwater, Michigan, the phones start ringing. The voices say they are calling from heaven. Each call is greeted differently—some with love, some with religious zeal, some with fear. The question of whether these calls are a miracle or a hoax drives Sully Harding, a grieving single father with an inquisitive and hopeful son, to uncover the truth. A page-turning mystery and a meditation on the power of connecting with a loved one you cannot see, this latest novel is a virtuosic feat of history, love, and redemption.
“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.”
