Beginning ~ with a phone call

The First Phone Call from Heaven ~ by Mitch Albom, 2013, fiction (Michigan)
On  the day the world received its first phone call from heaven, Tess Rafferty was unwrapping a box of tea bags.
This book was a Christnas gift from one of my daughters to Donna, my roommate.  Donna has already finished the novel, and I am now on the third chapter.  All I had intended to do was skim the beginning to see what the book was about, and before I knew it, I was well into the story.

Gilion at Rose City Reader hosts Book Beginnings on Fridays.  Click here for today's Mister Linky.

I like this beginning. The author introduces his main character and gives me the impression that this is going to be a humorous book (I'm not sure why!) I'll read this one for sure.
My Friday post is from THE WHISKEY BOTTLE IN THE WALL.
