Mitch Albom - “The Five People you meet in Heaven”

Eddie is a wounded war veteran, an old man who has lived, in his mind, an uninspired life. His job is fixing rides at a seaside amusement park. On his 83rd birthday, a tragic accident kills him as tries to save a little girl from a falling cart. He awakens in the afterlife, where he learns that heaven is not a destination. It's a place where your life is explained to you by five people. One by one, from childhood to soldier to old age, Eddie's five people revisit, their connections to him on earth, illuminating the mysteries of his "meaningless" life and revealing the haunting secret behind the eternal question: "Why was I here?"

MITCH ALBOM was born in 1958 and is a bestselling author who has written eight books, including the phenomenally popular “Tuesdays With Morrie“. Published in 1997, it stayed on the New York Times bestseller list for four straight years. Albom serves on the boards of various charities and in 1999 he was named National Hospice Organization's Man of the Year. He lives with his wife, Janine, in Franklin, Michigan.
