<p>In this enchanting sequel to the number one bestseller <em>The Five People You Meet in Heaven,</em> 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.</p><p>Fifteen years ago, in Mitch Albom’s beloved novel, <em>The Five People You Meet in Heaven,</em> 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.

When, as a young woman, she reconnects with Paulo, her childhood love, she believes she has finally  found happiness. </p><p>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.</p><p>Poignant and beautiful, filled with unexpected twists, <em>The Next Person You Meet in Heaven</em> 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. </p>
