Overview

The Ascent chronicles my near death experience at the age of twenty-four. Thirty-two days in the ICU for a ruptured appendix led to two clinical deaths on the operating table. The spiritual people that I saw and the gift they gave me that would continue to haunt me for years. The experience would forever change my view on religion and death.
I died in the month of May. Twenty-four years old and it was my favorite month of the year. Flowers were in full bloom while dusty rains covered the desert sky. Stretched naked on the operating table with deep incisions splitting my entire abdominal cavity returning in death via the same manner as my birth. Life is always morphing rapidly from one moment to the next. Sometimes so quickly that you don't even notice how everyday activities are taken for granted. Death changed my notion of time and I would never be the same again.

Editorial Reviews

Sheri Mc Laren
The last paragraph of this book really sums it all up. Tracy does an amazing job at creating a word picture of her spiritual experience and makes you want to have been there with her. She is an angel God put back down on earth to affect the people around her!
Harry Longbaugh
A compelling recounting of the author's personal experiences before, during and after a near-death experience.
Edna Curry
I was intrigued by the premise and enjoyed the story whether or not it's supposed to be true.
Jennifer K.
Just finished it and I experienced something extremely similar to your story after an accident in my teens! Loved It ♥

This was a heartfelt read that had me crying in  parts. It is short story but the author has written with compassion. The gift she was left with was amazing. It was a detailed account of  near death experience which was an interesting read. I would highly recommend it.
