Early Comments from Readers

“I’m so very happy for you, Tricia! It was such an honor to write your feature for our Easter issue of Woman’s World coming out April 11th! You’re a light that inspires millions! Sending you proud hugs! This book is life changing!!!” —Diane Nichols, Author of God Gave me You:  A True Story of Love, Loss, and a Heaven-Sent Miracle

Tricia Barker’s Angels in the OR:What Dying Taught me About Healing, Survival, and Transformation, is a page-turner and the most service-oriented book I’ve ever read. After crushing her back a few weeks short of her college graduation, and the profound experience of dying during surgery, she was given a mission by the light of God, to go back and teach. With the new blissful awareness of her eternal being, she dedicated her life to teaching and sharing the beautiful, life-altering message of  unconditional, all-encompassing love. In the face of setbacks, a cruel rape, and the harsh mistreatment that students and females commonly experience, she learned to balance the broken with a fierce, spirited sense of purpose that shows an inspirational triumph, an empowerment that we can all tap into.” —Tiger Wiese Jones

“This is one book you won’t want to miss! Angels in the OR: What Dying Taught Me about Healing, Survival, and Transformation is exceptionally poignant and moving. This spiritually uplifting book is beautifully written, hard to put down, and enthusiastically recommended.” –Jeffrey Long, M.D., author of New York Times bestselling Evidence of the Afterlife: The Science of Near-Death Experience 

“I’m honored to be the narrator for this light-filled memoir. I cried through the last two chapters, for the beauty of it as my heart was overflowing with the love Tricia Barker shares with us in this book.”  Leslie Howard, Audible Narrator for Angels in the OR

“This is a story of faith, love, courage, and strength.  I can only imagine the amount of bravery it took for Tricia Barker to open herself up in a way that will motivate many people.  The message of ‘Love is all that matters’ comes across clearly.  I have friends and family going through health challenges, and after reading this book it hit me that I need to make sure that I’m loving them like a little child.  I see now how Angels in the OR will have a big impact on many people.” —Andy Parks, Seattle

“Angels in the OR abounds in rarities. It is rare for a near-death experiencer to have the command of English to make the ineffable experience clear.  Those unfamiliar with near-death experiences will find an excellent introduction to the experiencer’s perspective; those familiar will find wonders anew in Tricia’s story.” –Janice Miner Holden, EdD, is professor of counseling at the University of North Texas

“Tricia Barker’s Angels in the OR is far more than the story of a profound near-death experience. It is a book of profound spiritual wisdom, which comes from the author’s life of healing from great physical pain, emotional trauma, and most of all from her inspiring dedication to her life as a teacher. I was deeply moved by this book. The light and infinite love of God often shines through Tricia Barker’s words.” —Kenneth Ring, Ph.D., retired Professor Emeritus of psychology at the University of Connecticut and a researcher within the field of near-death studies

“In Tricia’s story, I see my story, and I imagine you will see yours as well because it is a tale of how we must struggle sometimes to bring the light of our spirits into a world that can be cruel.  Tricia captivated me; her writing is so beautifully detailed and authentic as she shares not only the breath-taking moments of her near-death but also the challenges of bringing the light back to this world….” —Lisa Smartt, Author of Words at the Threshold

Angels in the OR is about a spiritual journey of a very alive and honest woman. She hides nothing from her truthful account of living dying and living more fully. Tricia Barker is an engaging and compassionate person who has found her purpose in life. Following her beautifully written story will confirm the readers about their own journey. Share the light with her as she brings the love into our world.” —Howard Storm, author of My Descent into Death, is a minister, writer, and painter.

“I relate to so much about this book.  I cried, but I felt my heart healing as I read certain passages.  I wanted to be more of a community like the author suggests and really support one another. The near-death experience is written so clearly and seems like a movie scene.  I haven’t read a book like this one before.  Her voice is authentic, real, and polished.  Spiritual lessons are woven into lessons in reality.  There are painful scenes, beautiful scenes, heart-breaking scenes, and triumphant scenes that really moved me.” –Megan (former student)
