COLDWATER, MI (WTVB) - So what do you think of Detroit Free Press columnist Mitch Albom now? You might have heard he has a new book out and it’s set in what he calls the “Fictional town of Coldwater in northern Michigan”. Oops! Apparently when he wrote it, he had no idea that there really is a Coldwater, Michigan. He apologizes to the real Coldwater in southern lower Michigan in the forward.
The premise of the book is that a few people who live in Coldwater get calls from relatives who died years ago. The calls come to a select few on a Friday. Most of the book is about how the local and national media and the general public react to the phenomena. The book is titled “Calls from Heaven” and it's out today.
