About the Book

Flat-lining for thirty-seven seconds after giving birth to her second child, the author, after remaining unconscious for more than two days and spending weeks in recovery, recounts details of her experience.

Book Synopsis

Like Proof of Heaven and To Heaven and Back, a medical drama with heavenly implications in which a woman receives premonitions of her death that come true, and her discovery of the heavenly help available to all of us.

When she was pregnant with her second child, Stephanie Arnold had a sudden and overwhelming premonition that she would die during the delivery. Though she tried to tell the medical team and her family what was going to happen, neither the doctors nor her loved ones gave her warnings credence. Finding no physical indications that anything was wrong, they attributed her foreboding to hormones and anxiety.

One member of the medical team did take her concerns seriously enough, and made the fateful decision to order extra units of blood "just in case." Then, during the delivery, Stephanie suffered a rare Amniotic Fluid Embolism. She went into cardiac arrest and flat-lined for 37 seconds. She died. Using the supplementary blood, the medical team revived her, and she remained unconscious for more than six days.

After months of recovery, Stephanie began to remember details of her experience, details she knew because she had witnessed the entire dramatic event, including her death, from outside her body--beside other spirits that were with her. In this remarkable true story, Stephanie recounts her harrowing journey and shares her surprising spiritual discoveries: we are not alone and have more loving help than we can imagine surrounding us.

Review Quotes

"Stephanie Arnold's journalistic instincts made this remarkable happening a compelling reading experience." -- Dennis Swanson, President of Station Operations at Fox Television

"Engaging, riveting, terrifying, inspiring, enlightening...this book isn't just for the believer, this book is for the curious and the cynical...No matter who you are, the story of what happened to this woman when she died for '37 seconds' will make you rethink how we all should live." -- Maureen Maher, CBS News correspondent/48 Hours

"Arnold's amazing, enthralling, and revealing story of how her clairvoyant visions anticipated and ultimately brought her back from the clutches of death could redefine the way clergy, physicians, and scientists think about dying...Nay Sayers and believers alike must take note of what really happens during those 37 seconds of death." -- Dr. Rachael Ross, co-host of The Doctors

"I found myself wanting to read page after page without a break. There are so many thoughts I had and have - thoughts about western medicine, thoughts about life, thoughts about afterlife, thoughts about speaking out, thoughts about intuition." -- Debra Wong Yang, Former Judge and US Attorney

"A remarkable story of strength and love, Arnold's simple, direct prose reaches deep into your heart. This is a beautiful story of spirit about how life is to be cherished and how love is to be honored. I'm looking forward to the movie!" -- Diane Alexander, Producer, The Second City

"A vivid account of Arnold's clinical death--a death she foresaw--following the birth of her son. If you're skeptical of such things, Arnold's reporting on her own story will make you a believer. You won't want to put it down. -- Bethany McLean, Vanity Fair contributing editor and New York Times bestselling author

"Not everyone with a great story to tell is also a great writer. Fortunately for us Arnold is the whole package; a truly gifted writer who gives us the gift of her heartfelt and life-changing story. Life and death, love and caring come together in this must-read remembrance." -- James Rickards, author of The Death of Money

"A phenomenal read. This novel is for anyone who needs to be reminded that your own intuition is a perfectly good explanation for any of your thoughts, perceptions, or beliefs. It's your inner wisdom designed to guide you through life and protect you." -- Briana Williams, MamaGlow.com

"Wow! Riveting. Stephanie Arnold takes all her readers--even the hyper-logical--on her journey along the most fascinating paths of the human spirit." -- Matthew Rhodes-Kropf, Associate Professor, Harvard Business School

"A rapid, tense drama... a medical phenomenon coupled with her unusual ability to follow through on the forewarnings she received. Arnold's explanations are non-melodramatic, illuminating, edifying, and leave the door wide open for new discussions about souls and where the life force goes when the body dies." -- Shelf Awareness

"I loved 37 Seconds. Loved. It. This book is emotional and moving and contains such an important message of God's love." -- Tracy A. Fischer for Readers' Favorite Book Review

"Stephanie Arnold's ability to create a well-constructed out of body and near-death experience enables readers to ponder such things for themselves...a must-read. It encourages us all to believe that there is so much more beyond our understanding of our physical lives. A thought-provoking and inspiring read." -- Hilary Hawkes for Readers' Favorite Book Review
