A cloistered nun goes missing, leaving behind a cardboard box for her niece, Mare, along with a mysterious note which reads: "This is from the thirteenth disciple. Follow where it leads." The mystery deepens when Mare opens the box and finds a solid gold reliquary, a receptacle that holds a saint's bones. Was the artifact stolen? What is the meaning of the note? Was there indeed a 13th disciple? And where did her aunt disappear to? Mare sets out to find the answers with the help of a ragtag foursome of skeptics and sinners. They soon discover a secret contained in the reliquary that could well change the history of Christianity, and forever redefine what it means to be a person of faith. Like his prior novels, Buddha and Jesus, Deepak Chopra blends spiritual truths about a religious icon with masterful storytelling, this time in an intriguing mystery that invites readers to experience religion in a whole new way.

Why would God plant within us such a deep longing to be loved, not only impersonally by Him, but also personally by a single other, if He did not also intend to fulfill that desire? In this romantic novel, one of the great spiritual teachers of our time answers that question. This is the story of one soul's search for her eternal mate: God. And also the story of two divinely destined lovers—twin souls—who meet, separate, meet and separate again, in countless tumultuous, dramatic lifetimes. Never until now has the question of soul-mates been raised and answered with such a perfect blend of poetry, romance, and wisdom.

The phone calls start arriving in Coldwater, Michigan: voices from the deceased. Voices bearing messages about the lightness of souls, and happiness and love and freedom from pain. Even the chief of police receives calls…from his dead son. But nobody dares to mention these miracles until a woman stands up in church to break her silence. It doesn't take long for a TV station to get wind of the story and the news to go viral. Strangers pour into town hoping to receive their own calls from the afterlife. The local clergymen are hesitant to validate the occurrences. At the center of it all, Sully Harding, a man still grieving over the loss of his wife, wants to get to the bottom of this, to prove that these claims are a hoax and there is no life beyond the living. Albom once again writes of faith and doubt and the connection between humans and spirit in a magical mystery that keeps the reader hooked for answers.
