From the author of the number one New York Times bestseller Tuesdays with Morrie comes this long-awaited follow-up.Eddie is a wounded war veteran, an old man who has lived, in his mind, an uninspired life.

One by one, from childhood to soldier to old age, Eddie s five people revisit their connections to him on earth, illuminating the mysteries of his meaningless life, and revealing the haunting secret behind the eternal question: Why was I here?A moving and profound contemporary fable, The Five People You Meet in Heaven is an important reminder of the interconnectedness of us all.From the Hardcover edition.
