Author Mitch Albom never intended to write a sequel to his bestseller, The Five People You Meet in Heaven. But that ever present but queries from fans who wanted to know what became of Eddie and Annie prompted him to write The Next Person You Meet in Heaven.

Did Eddie ever see Annie again? He had saved Annie's life and lost his. Was he angry that he died saving her? If he had it to do over, would he sacrifice his life for someone he didn't even know? Did the last thing he ever did on Earth haunt him?

And what about Annie? Did she live? Did she and her mother reconcile? Do Eddie and Annie ever see each other again? Did Annie ever find peace in her life?

I won't answer these and so many other questions here. I'll leave readers to find the answers for themselves. Answers aren't the principal intent of the author. Albom deals with human interaction ... and acceptance of the hands we are all dealt. Forgiveness plays a large role. Being calm and peaceful is highly recommended.

The Next Person You Will Meet in Heaven is a lovely tale, written by a man with strong feelings he is willing to share.
