The First Phone Call From HeavenMitch Albom
Rating: 3/5 stars
Reviewer: Denise G.
Summary: Coldwater, a small town in Michigan is thrust into the global spotlight when some of its residents start receiving phone calls from loved ones in Heaven. Not everyone in town is a believer, and one of its residents is set on getting to the bottom of this mystery, whether it be an act of God Himself, or someone who knows a little too much about the residents of Coldwater.
Review: I'm a big fan of Mitch Albom, and always find his books to perfectly balance tugging on the reader's heartstrings with an uplifting and positive message. The First Phone Call From Heaven left me wanting more, which was a first for anything Albom has written. This is a quick read, yet another book I read within 24 hours of starting it. I found the main character to be a little difficult to like, which was unfortunately because he had a sad back story and I wanted to like him as the book progressed.
