Rona's Book Recommendation: The Five People You Meet In Heaven by Mitch Albom

Here's a book that had been on my reading list for a long time. I finally had the opportunity to get my hand on a copy through PaperbookSwap.com. This much talked about book is just amazing, heart warming and caused me a few tears. It's a lovely little book that follows the main character, Eddie, through a series of meetings with people who have affected his life, after he dies. The last thing he remembers is two small hands linking with his, as he tries to save a young girl from an amusement park ride accident. Some of the five people he meets surprise him, as well as the settings in which he finds them.
This book really puts light on those of us who may feel we have a dull, boring life with no purpose.
Here's a book that makes a fantastic gift for anytime of the year. With all the horrible news recently we should all get a copy and read it.
