Trudy Harris began her career with Hospice in 1981, eventually becoming the president of the Hospice Foundation for Caring. This collection of more than 40 true stories of Harris's patients offers readers an incredible glimpse at what lies beyond and what the living can learn from the dying. Her patients have described to her visions of angels and loved ones who have gone on before, the sounds of ethereal music, colors that did not exist on earth. She has been with hundreds of patients as they took their last breaths and knows the kinds of questions that both the dying and the loved ones they are leaving behind ask.

  • What do you say to a loved one who is dying?
  • What happens when we die?
  • How can you make a dying friend feel safe?
  • Does a dying person really see angels, hear music, or see friends and family members who have already died?

Tender, heartbreaking, and eye-opening, Glimpses of Heaven offers a window into the world beyond and life after death.

    " This book was amazing, I was unable to put it down. Written by a HOSPICE nurse, it really brought me back to all the experiences that I had the blessing of sharing with those during their final journey as well, when I worked in HOSPICE. The journey of life is a special one without a doubt especially with those we share it with, but I came to find that the journey to the other side is a much more sacred relationship, and one that cannot but humble the most stoic at heart. I came to realize that many if not all experience pretty close to the same preparation, of course not identical but I found no one was ever alone in their journey. It is a must read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christine Pouliot-basnar | 2/13/2014

    " As a hospice volunteer, this is a must read book! Seeing through the eyes of a person who's in the dying process helps you love and appreciate God and in His promise REGARDLESS of what name you give Him, God welcomes ALLHis children Home Its a lovely read for ALL religious beliefs and helps you take a strong look at what you consider important in your life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Judy Wise | 2/4/2014

    " This was a wonderful book, also sad because they are true. A hospice nurse tells stories of the hope and peace at the end of life's journey. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Denise | 1/28/2014

    " This book was okay but I was expecting really amazing stories and while there were a few of those some were just blah. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joleen Richwine | 1/28/2014

    " Stories of people who have had a near-death experience as told by a nurse who witnessed it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lreyes0612 | 1/24/2014

    " The author (a former hospic nurse) writes on her patients experiences as they prepared for their physical life's end. Good gift for a terminally ill person. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carolyn Benton | 1/23/2014

    " WOW! This book will leave you in awe and wonderment. What is in store for each one of us when this life comes to a close? Harris does an excellent job capturing the final moments of some of her patients. It is amazing how similar the experiences are. It is even more amazing how the hand of God draws us even closer to him at those final moments of life, regardless of religious denomination. This book is well worth the read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 1/19/2014

    " The author, Trudy Harris, a nurse taking care of the terminally ill and dying for over 32 years wrote this book from stories that she has experienced over the years. She is obviously a woman of strong faith and wants to give the message of what she has learned from being with so many at the time of their death. Trudy details things that the dying have said and seen as they get ready to pass from this life into the next. What she describes is comforting to both those facing death and the people who love them and don't want to lose them. My intense feeling in reading this book is that no one should die alone and I am so grateful that we were all with my dad as he reached the end. My despair came to know that my grandmother did not have that when she passed away and that she died in a hospital room alone. I admit that this haunts me and I pray that the Lord sent my grandfather to be the person to welcome her home, as they were so devoted to each other. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 2/19/2013

    " Written by a hospice nurse, accounts of the last moments of her patients, many who claim to have seen angels, passed loved ones, heaven, Jesus etc. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joanna Smith | 10/15/2012

    " The description of the book is pretty misleading. Thought it would be more about people's experiences with the after life, but it's more about their journey getting there. (I.e. their last days of life and coming to terms with dying). Not very impressed and the book gets repetitive after a while. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura Bland | 9/13/2012

    " A lovely book to read, a wonderful glimpse at the work of Christ in the lives of those whose lives are about to transistion into eternal life. It gives a healthy respect to those serving Him through Hospice care to His children in their final hours, days, weeks and/or months. "

    " Written by a hospice nurse, it tells the stories of those dying who experience peace at the end of their lives. Many either see a glimpse of heaven, Jesus, a family member...or are able to share peace with someone they are leaving behind. Inspirational. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kara Prem | 5/21/2011

    " Rather than looking at death as a scary, powerless event, the author gives us a chance to see the serenity and even beauty that can be a part of the dying process. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Nancy | 1/8/2011

    " A very interesting subject, but I feel Trudy missed the mark by inserting such strong religious beliefs as a a part of each and every experience. Her personal beliefs peppered the account so much that it took away from the more important experiences. A HUGE disappointment! "
