The intention for this book is different than for any other book I have ever written. It has history but it is not an historical novel. There are no fiction people. It is my life’s journey but I do not want the focus to be upon me. I would like folks to find the reading enjoyable but it was not written to entertain. Nor was it written to make a personal highlight or for money or gain.
It was written to share but not preach but to show how through an ordinary life and a very ordinary child a life of unexpected pathways can emerge. It is a story of the discovery of a Divine GOD who shows not just a beautiful reflection of all that is worthwhile but IS Divine LOVE, Divine PEACE. HOPE and BEAUTY. As long as rules are followed the MESSAGE of why Jesus was born and His Plan for the whole world was clarified to me in simplicity and through struggle and loss.
The address and website for the book is on line now.
I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions.
I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
