Searching For Home

"Searching for Home" is a powerful story of a young woman’s love, hope and healing after a near-death experience. Martin’s personal account begins at the height of a promising tennis career when she has a routine surgical procedure that goes awry. Clinically dead, Martin is catastrophically sent on a voyage to the Light. She describes her near-death experience as being Home – Home in the Light! Upon her reluctant return from the "other side," Martin becomes a chronic pain patient, relentlessly looking for that place called "home." And thus beings her journey - Searching for Home.
