‘No act done for someone else is ever wasted...‘
At eight years old, Annie was saved from a tragic accident by a complete stranger and her life changed forever. Her mother, ravaged with guilt, whisked Annie away from the world she once knew. Bullied by her peers and haunted by something she cannot recall, Annie struggles to find acceptance as she grows. When, as a young woman, she reconnects with Paulo, her childhood love, she believes she has finally found happiness.
But when her wedding nights ends in an unimaginable accident, Annie finds herself on her way to heaven. Little does she know that in this world, she will reunite with five people who will show her how her life mattered in ways she could never have imagined.
Poignant and beautiful, filled with unexpected twists, The Next Person You Meet in Heaven reminds us that not only does every life matter, but that every ending is also a beginning – we only need to open our eyes to see it.
