Publisher's Summary

A life-altering car accident, an act of unforgettable violence....

One woman’s courageous story. 

Tricia Barker was a depressed, agnostic college student at The University of Texas in Austin...until a profound near-death experience (NDE) during surgery revolutionizes her entire world. As she learns to walk again, Tricia lets go of painful wounds from childhood and integrates some of the aftereffects of her spiritual journey into her daily life. She returns to college with renewed vigor, intending to embark on a new path by becoming an English teacher. 

But after a year of teaching in the US, Tricia travels to South Korea, where she is the victim of a sexual assault. Now, she must use the wisdom she gained on the Other Side to heal herself, and later, guide countless junior high, high school, and college students to greater peace. Through teaching and mentoring others - many of whom are struggling with traumas of their own - Tricia decides to devote her life to bringing the “light” she experienced during her NDE to individuals who are seeking solace, inspiration, and overall well-being.

A most worthy read.

I will admit I am curious about angels and looked forward to hearing the author’s accounts of visiting the realm beyond this life; her details of which were uplifting and deeply thought provoking. What I had not anticipated was the inspiration I received as I was taken through her remarkable journey of healing, and the subsequent challenges of survival she would encounter thereafter. Tricia Barker’s writing is clear and frank and convincing. Yet her gift of description through her vivid choice of words swept me off the pages and into the grit of real life. My lasting impression lies in her work as a teacher and the gifts her life experiences have imparted to our youngest most valuable members of our human society... those kids whose needs for healing and guidance are of great import to the very success of our lives, to the very success of my own life. Healing those who hurt the most and the ripple effect of good this brings into our communities is a difficult thing to quantify but is easily understood in the heart. This book is a most worthy read. The Audible version and voice of the narrator Leslie Howard are a perfect paring. I could listen all day.
