Review:

Mitch Albom sees the magical in the ordinary Cecelia Ahern Beautiful and smart. Perhaps the most stirring and transcendent heaven story since Field of Dreams Matthew Quick, author of The Silver Linings Playbook A beautifully rendered tale of faith and redemption that makes us think, feel and hope - and then doubt and then believe, as only Mitch Albom can make us do Garth Stein, author of The Art of Racing in the Rain
