The story of Beyond the Ashes began on a coach to Central Australia in 1968. I asked the question in my heart……What happens to ordinary folk when unforgiveness is allowed to fester in their lives?

Could a tragic accident pull a family apart?

Can issues in past lives significantly effect the present?

These are some of the issues dealt with in a very simple way in this my first STORY.

                                                 Daniel believes at the time of his son’s death that his whole life has crumbled into Ashes.    ‘Ashes,  Ashes, everywhere is his heartbroken cry.



I’m  simply testing.   I did not realize I have a website inside my blog site and I’m not sure but will find out how it is supposed to work.   Wondering where this will publish to.

Bemused but trying.

The full story of my writing life.     I wonder why I am having such a learning curve in understanding today exactly where ‘stuff’ is flowing and saving.

All the books are available now as e-books in many places but Amazon features best aspects.    All I really care about is that books are loved, enjoyed and my Lord is seen in the creativity expressed.


About me

2017 (4)     Hi! my name is Faye Roots, I am wife – married to David for 48 years in October 2018. Mother of three children and now five grandchildren.   I am a Christian writer and hope all the things I both blog and share are honouring to the Lord I love and desire to follow as My Shepherd.  I have begun a Word-press Course from the beginning in the hope it will help me with some of the basics I still have trouble with on my site.  I am a passionate writer and life for me continues to be a balance between the spiritual and the natural and being the best I can be but truthfully acknowledging that the Valleys and the Hills of life must be treated as lessons on the Way.

Picture above was 2017 before the pre-Christmas unexpected valley and the radiation  journey of early 2018.    Hopefully although a bit shaken I have not altered too much from this photograph.
