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.

This book brings the first book full circle in a very thoughtful and inspiring way. I have always believed that every small thing that we do in life controls how our life and that of others, shapes the life that we we live.

It was a nice story

I loved this book. It was the perfect sequel to Five People You Will Meet in Heaven. It is very insightful. I like his representation of what the afterlife would be like and it gives me hope for a better life after death than just cruising through Heaven strumming a harp. I highly recommend people of all faiths read it.

I have read all of his books and this one was just as good as the rest!

I have read hundreds of near-death experience books and this one is very very good. None of us can have the overview and perfect clarity provided by the other side. We are here to learn how to keep our faith and our integrity. The road is Bumpy for all the reasons that Mitch mentions. We are all worthy no matter the mixed messages we may receive. Excellent book my friend. We have met and it's been a pleasure.

Love Mitch Albom's writing style & how the present and future explain the what/why of life circumstances! Also, he shares insight of the afterlife which I believe!
