In a small, fictitious Lake Michigan coastal town Coldwater, random people started receiving phone calls from their deceased loved ones. From there, the spread of the miracle and how it affected the world. In this story, we see how the town changes and people are effected in both positive and negative ways. This was about the only think I liked from this story – people’s selfish ambitions, and the good and bad that can accompany a so called miracle.
I did like the historical account of Alexander Graham Bell and his invention of the telephone. But with that alone, I absolutely hated the story. While the general idea was good, I really wasn’t in the mood. The account is a bit far fetched and the characters really didn’t have depth to them. In addition, the story wasn’t really that believable and the ending is bland.
I would recommend “Tuesdays with Morrie” by Albom instead.
