From internationally renowned award-winning author, screenwriter, playwright and nationally syndicated columnist Mitch Albom, comes an allegory about the power of belief, certain to touch your soul.

A small town in Michigan gets worldwide attention when its residents receive phone calls from the afterlife. Is it the greatest miracle ever or a massive hoax? Albom skillfully incorporates today's technology with the spiritual.

Best known for Tuesdays With Morrie, Albom's books have sold millions of copies in over forty languages and have been made into acclaimed TV films. His eclectic career encompasses sports commentator, amateur boxer, nightclub singer, pianist and stand-up comedian. An enthusiastic philanthropist with charities in Detroit and Haiti, Albom hails from New Jersey. He earned graduate degrees in Journalism and MBA from Columbia University.
