By Mitch Albom
5 out of 5 stars
Endings are also beginnings, we just don’t know it at the time…..
I don’t know one person who did not love The Five People You Meet in Heaven. And I don’t know anyone that won’t love this book either. It is so needed in the times we live in. It is filled with love, wonder, hope, and faith. I know some people will find it too saccharine because there are always those that scoff at anything with goodness, but I, for one, found it uplifting and elevating to the soul.
This time it is Annie, the little girl from Ruby Pier, that enters heaven. Her journey brings people that have been part of her life, even if in a small way that lead to something more. You know you all want to see Eddie and you won’t be disappointed.
The ending was a surprise and such a tender reminder of how much we miss out on life if we aren’t letting it happen genuinely.
Mitch Albom is the king of touching your heart and making you think. He reminds us to embrace what we have and who we love. I will always be first in line for one of his books and his wise, heartfelt words.
Thanks to Harper Books for a copy of this wonderful book.
