#1 New York Times BestsellerWhat would happen if we cried out to God for help and someone claiming to be God actually appeared before us? In Mitch Albom’s profound novel, a group of shipwrecked passengers must face that challenge when a strange man they pull from the water says he can save them all, but only if they believe in him.

Adrift in a raft after a deadly ship explosion, ten people struggle for survival at sea. Short on food, water, and hope, they spot a mysterious man floating in the waves and pull him in.“Thank the Lord we found you,” a passenger says. “I am the Lord,” the man whispers.So sets the scene in Mitch Albom’s most beguiling and inspiring novel yet, one that drives to the core of our deepest beliefs.For the first time in fiction, he ponders the question of divine intervention. What would we do if God—or someone claiming to be God—actually answered our call? Would we accept it? Dismiss it? Would our belief be based on the stranger’s looks, words, actions—or our own desperation?In The Stranger in the Lifeboat, Albom weaves a web of fast-paced mysteries that jump time and keep us guessing: What caused the ship to explode? Who was actually in the lifeboat? Is the man claiming to be “the Lord” for real?The story is narrated by a lonely passenger named Benji, who recounts the events in a notebook that is discovered—a year later—when an empty raft washes up on the island of Montserrat. It falls to the island’s chief inspector, Jarty LeFleur, a man battling his own demons, to solve the mystery of what really happened out at sea.
