On his 83rd birthday, Eddie, a lonely war veteran, dies in a tragic accident trying to save a little girl from a falling cart. With his final breath, he feels two small hands in his - and then nothing. He awakens in the afterlife, where he learns that heaven is not a lush Garden of Eden but a place where your earthly life is explained to you by five people who were in it. These people may have been loved ones or distant strangers. Yet each of them changed your path forever.
In The Five People You Meet in Heaven, Mitch Albom gives us an astoundingly original story with a stunning conclusion that will change everything you've ever thought about the afterlife - and the meaning of our lives here on earth.
