The book begins with the end of Eddie’s life. He was a grumpy old man, who lived, but didn’t see the sense of his own life, he felt like it was a waist. Eddie dies trying to save a little girl’s life. When he “wakes up” he finds himself in heaven where he meets 5 different people who were important in his life. Not all of them he knew, but each of them had affected his life and he had changed their destinies without even knowing it.
It’s an unusual explanation about the afterlife, sweet and moving, it will make you think and cry. A fairy tale you want to believe in.
