Will it work out in the end?

This was a really interesting concept, and as such, keeps you intrigued right until the end.

The small town Americana is reminiscent of Richard Russo's writing without the bittersweet comedy. Various inhabitants have been receiving phone calls from "heaven". The chief of police is most reluctant to believe the growing hype, until his dead son gets in touch.

There were quite a lot of characters introduced which made it tricky at times to keep up; but the use of Alexander Graham Bell's timeline of inventing the phone at the start of each chapter was genius, and gave you a wee chance to stop and take stock of who was who!
