"In this enchanting sequel to the number one bestseller The Five People You Meet in Heaven, Mitch Albom tells the story of Eddie's heavenly reunion with Annie--the little girl he saved on earth--in an unforgettable novel of how our lives and losses intersect. Fifteen years ago, in Mitch Albom's beloved novel, The Five People You Meet in Heaven, the world fell in love with Eddie, a grizzled war veteran- turned-amusement park mechanic who died saving the life of a young girl named Annie. Eddie's journey to heaven taught him that every life matters. Now, in this magical sequel, Mitch Albom reveals Annie's story. The accident that killed Eddie left an indelible mark on Annie. It took her left hand, which needed to be surgically reattached. Injured, scarred, and unable to remember why, Annie's life is forever changed by a guilt-ravaged mother who whisks her away from the world she knew. Bullied by her peers and haunted by something she cannot recall, Annie struggles to find acceptance as she grows. When, as a young woman, she reconnects with Paulo, her childhood love, she believes she has finally found happiness. As the novel opens, Annie is marrying Paulo. But when her wedding night day ends in an unimaginable accident, Annie finds herself on her own heavenly journey--and an inevitable reunion with Eddie, one of the five people who will show her how her life mattered in ways she could not have fathomed. Poignant and beautiful, filled with unexpected twists, The Next Person You Meet in Heaven reminds us that not only does every life matter,but that every ending is also a beginning--we only need to open our eyes to see it"--

I read the entirety of The Next Person you Meet in Heaven in one evening. It wasn’t too easy. It was just so good.
The Five People You Meet in Heaven is one of my favourite books of all time, so of course I picked this one up right away. The themes may seem a bit daunting, but it is anything but dark. It is a beautiful story of intertwining lives and unseen consequences. This sequel is a little more obvious in its choices of the people met in heaven, and is clearly meant to tug on the heartstrings. My advice? Just let it. Let it pull you in. Let it make you cry. Then recover, and let the whole process start all over again.
Normally I don’t go for obvious books. But this one is obvious in a beautiful way.

Amazing author and a fantastic sequel to his previous book! It's hard not to love what he writes and the life lessons he teaches us through his stories.
