Viele Wege führen zu Gott!

Mitch Albom ist überrascht, als Albert Lewis, der betagte Rabbi seiner Heimatgemeinde in New Jersey, ihn darum bittet, bei seinem Tod die Trauerrede für ihn zu halten. Er versteht nicht, weshalb der Rabbi ihn dafür ausgewählt hat, denn den Bezug zum Glauben hat er schon lange verloren. Schließlich willigt er unter der Bedingung ein, den Rabbi besser kennenlernen zu dürfen. Und so erfährt er Albert Lewis während der kommenden acht Jahre bei ihren Treffen nicht nur als einen engagierten Mann der Kirche, sondern auch als einen ebenso klugen wie humorvollen Menschen. In dieser Zeit begegnet Mitch Albom in Detroit jedoch auch Henry Covington, einem Pastor mit krimineller Vergangenheit, dessen Schicksal eine fast unmöglich scheinende Wandlung erfahren hat. Die beiden Männer lehren Mitch Albom, die Welt und den Glauben mit neuen Augen zu sehen – und er nimmt aus den Gesprächen mit ihnen kostbare Anstöße und Erkenntnisse mit, die sein Leben verändern.

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.
