Edit: To Vanessa who reviewed the book (can’t reply to your review) I think that’s part of the design of the book. His other hardcover books in the past (I got First Phone Call From Heaven and The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto) look like that as well. I can upload photos of them later, if that helps. 😊
I enjoyed the experience of discovering what this book is about - what happens and why - way too much to in any way compromise another reader's enjoyment or meaningful discoveries. It's kind of personal, what each person might take away from the book. Instead of outlining what happens, then, let me just give a few words about my reaction or how reading the book impacted me.
The book is written thoughtfully - it encourages the reader to think about his or her life, other lives he or she has connected with in some way, and to look at a variety of things (events or meetings that happen by accident or chance, for just one example) in different, fresh ways. I liked how the book was written in a thoughtful, compassionate, warm way that encouraged many things: Questions (and possibly some answers; or maybe ideas of reasons why answers could be delayed or unknown), openness (not just an open heart, but an open mind), and many other refreshing exercises for the reader's mind and heart.
The book, including the ending, is satisfying and inspires courage even when you'd rather run away or hide your eyes; hope even when you feel like you've searched for an awfully long time and thought and reasoned and STILL can't figure things out; and being okay with missing pieces of yourself along your journey. You never know just where or when you'll find one of those missing pieces.
I enjoyed "The Next Person You Meet in Heaven" immensely and I can't imagine forgetting it.
