Five people five lessons narrated beautifully in an engaging story.
As I flipped the pages I learned to anticipate—eagerly, patiently—who Eddie is going to meet next.
Eddie “Maintenance” is the stronger of the two sons who would have done anything to get his father’s attention; in return for a bit of a fatherly love. Eddie’s story unravels in three time eras, Eddie’s present on earth, his present in heaven and his past. You bond with Eddie and perhaps often find yourself identifying with his story –shaking your head—you’ve been there, done that, felt it! No life is wasted. There is meaning and purpose to each and every one of our lives. We might not know it at this time. Does heaven, after life, exist to help us make sense of it all?
Mitch Albom’s “The Five People you Meet in Heaven” is a great read!
