Genre: Inspirational/nonfiction/memoirs

MORE GLIMPSES OF HEAVEN is a collection of true stories that are shared about when a person reaches the end of their life. There is a lot more to death than simply ceasing to live. Trudy Harris is a hospice nurse who has been with many people when they reached the end of life’s road and she has some beautiful, heart-warming stories to tell.

Stories about Jesus coming to meet with a little boy dying of leukemia. Or the old Jewish man who had a young Catholic girl come to tell him how to die. And many other stories.

MORE GLIMPSES OF HEAVEN is a book that you want to read with a box of Kleenex close by as it is a tear-jerker in places. But it is also full of stories of hope and grace, stories that allow the veil to be drawn back so we can see how God moves in even our deaths.

I lost both of my parents—my dad to cancer, and my mom to pneumonia—and I have my own true-life death stories to share. Stories that many folk don’t believe, and won’t believe unless they are able to experience them first hand. I believe that Ms. Harris truly has experienced these moments and if you are dying, or are losing a loved one, or maybe you’re just curious about what happens, then MORE GLIMPSES OF HEAVEN is a book to consider reading. A must have for any hospice nurse, a library, pastor, doctor, or family member or friend. $13.99. 204 pages.
