Eddie is a wounded war veteran, an old man who has lived, in his mind, an uninspired life. His job is fixing rides at a seaside amusement park. On his 83rd birthday, a tragic accident kills him, as he tries to save a little girl from a falling cart. He awakes in the afterlife, where he learns that heaven is not a destination. It's a place where your life is explained to you by five people, some of whom you knew, others who may have been strangers. 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?"

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting read I enjoyed the journey of Eddie - I'm sure many can relate to the loss of opportunity or love that we carry with us much like a heavy load.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from life changing! This book will come into your hands when you are ready and it is time. I read it in one day, could NOT put it down! I needed to know who he would meet and why - each page captivated me and FORCED me to face my inner thoughts of the life I am leading, the purpose I am to fullfill and to stop wasting LIFE! In our life time we will cross paths with many others, some for a glimmer of a second, some for hours, days or years - all of this happens as it is supposed to happen - be more aware and in tunned to these moments because we do affect each other 's lives.
