The First Phone Call From Heaven by Mitch Albom

The First Phone Call From Heaven by Mitch Albom

After multiple personal tragedies, including the death of his wife, Sully Harding returns to his hometown with his son to start over.  But quiet little Coldwater, Michigan becomes anything but quiet when a local resident receives a phone call from heaven and spreads the word to the world.  People flock to the tiny town to pray or protest the idea of phone calls from heaven, especially when other residents come forward that they too are hearing from people who have died.

Sully is convinced it has to be a hoax; he knows deep down that you can’t get a phone call from heaven.  He starts to investigate the calls when his young son starts carrying around a plastic telephone because he’s waiting for a call from his mother and it breaks his heart to know they will never hear her voice again.

This is a mystery with an interesting twist which takes a deep look at what would happen if these claims were actually made.  What would the media frenzy be like?  What makes a miracle?  Does it matter if something is true or not if the result is a better, happier, existence?
