Editorial Reviews

Edna Curry
I was intrigued by the premise and enjoyed the story whether or not it's supposed to be true.
Harry Longbaugh
A compelling recounting of the author's personal experiences before, during and after a near-death experience.
Jennifer K.
Just finished it and I experienced something extremely similar to your story after an accident in my teens! Loved It ♥
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!

    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.

Tracy does an amazing job at creating a word picture of her spiritual experience and makes you want to have been there with her.
