More Glimpses of Heaven by Trudy Harris, RN ~review

More Glimpses of Heaven: Inspiring True Stories of Hope and Peace at the End of Life's JourneyProduct Description from Amazon.com
Following her successful Glimpses of Heaven, Trudy Harris has collected even more true stories of the tender beauty and pain of life's end. Through her own stories and those of medical professionals and hospice workers, Harris brings readers with her on the search for God, forgiveness, faith, repentance, and ultimate acceptance and peace. The perfect gift for someone who has experienced the death of a loved one, More Glimpses of Heaven will bring peace and comfort to all who read it.
My take on this book:
This is a book of true stories from real people who are at the end of lifes journey ready to meet their God, and with these stories we are reassured that yes God is waiting for us.What an amazing legacy each of these people have left behind, and I felt as a reader I was fortunate to be able to read their stories!
I am sure that as a Hospice nurse Trudy Harris deals with death frequently, and to be able to share the stories of her patients in the final days is something that will bring comfort to many. Each story in this book is no more than a few pages, making it easy to pick up and put down again, but for me when I started reading it I didn't want to put it down. The stories that are shared within the covers of this book really touched my  heart.

I recommend this book to everyone, death is inevitable, something we all will face, and what a blessing to get a few Glimpses of Heaven from the remarkable stories in this book.

Even though I was provided a copy of this book from Revell Publishing (thanks Donna) it in no way alters my opinion of this book.


  1. aww this has to be hard and im sure makes a person take a good look at their life and their beliefs. Earlier this year my step-dad died of cancer and wow, it was like a speed course in how to deal with things. :) Great review.

  2. I think death is something that is difficult to think about but something we must all face, and in these stories you really know that God is there for us at the end of our journey. In my job I have been with a few of my patients when they have passed and they did see someone in the room that I couldn't see, when my mother died, she actually reached up and out to someone, I didn't see them but she sure did, and she seemed anxious to go with them.
