Embraced by the Light

Embraced By the Light is a true story about a woman named Betty Eadie who had a near death experience. Betty was in the hospital to undergo a partial hysterectomy. After her surgery Betty ran into complications and passed away for a period of time the doctors are uncertain about. Betty went to Heaven and communicated with God and other spirits. Through Betty’s story, readers learn what Heaven was like. She loved every minute she spent there. She explains how when you enter Heaven you go through a tunnel that changes you; your perspective on life changes and you see what is truly important—to love one another. Betty was forgiven for her sins and was ready to be with the angels and God in Heaven. She told us how beautiful and magical it was. It almost makes you want to go there yourself, but of course, we all can wait until it’s our time. This is an amazing book and I would recommend it to anyone. It will change your views on life. This book would be perfect for someone who believes that there is a Heaven out there and all spirits go somewhere. When we die we go to a much better place; it’s just the beginning. This book would also be great for someone who doesn’t believe in God, or angels or even Heaven. This will truly change your mind and make you a believer. You will want to change your ways and be a better person. I would most definitely recommend this book to someone who has lost a loved one. It truly gives you comfort knowing that they are in a far better place. She answers complicated, vexing questions like why babies and young people die. There is an answer for everything; everything happens for a reason.  Earth is our temporary home and Heaven is where we will spend eternity. You feel happy and relieved to know a loved one is at peace and happy. Betty explains how warm and comforting Heaven was. She did not want to leave. She felt love and happiness she has never felt before. She felt safe. She begged God to stay, but she had to complete her mission on earth first. She had a purpose on earth and needed to finish it before returning. I would give this book five stars. It was an amazing and inspirational true story that I will never forget and I will cherish it forever. Anyone who reads it will most definitely feel the same.  133.9 EAD (review by as [Class of 2013])
