The First Phone Call From Heaven

From Lisa Lando

Title:  The First Phone Call From Heaven

Author:  Mitch Albom

This is about people in a small town who start to receive brief phone calls from one of there deceased family members. When the public gets hold of it, it splits the town into believers & people who want to debunk it.  I have mixed feelings about this story.  I liked the premise, but w/o giving to much away, I wish it would have stayed the course.
