THE FIVE PEOPLE YOU MEET IN HEAVEN addresses the meaning of life, and life after death, in the poignant way that made TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE.An elderly amusement park maintenance worker named Eddie who, while operating a ride called the 'Free Fall', dies while trying to save a young girl who gets in the way of a falling cart that hurtles to earth. Eddie goes to heaven, where he meets five people who were unexpectedly instrumental in some way in his life. While each guide takes him through heaven, Eddie learns a little bit more about what his time on earth meant, what he was supposed to have learned, and what his true purpose on earth was. Throughout there are dramatic flashbacks where we see scenes from his troubled childhood, and with his first and only love, his wife Marguerite.

The seeds of his 1997 phenomenon Tuesdays With Morrie lay in Albom reconnecting with his sometime sociology professor Morrie Schwartz, and the result was a slim volume of conversations that struck a deep chord with the American public. Albom’s continued his success with 2003’s The Five People You Meet in Heaven, and has explored similar themes of fate and redemption over the books that followed.
