FACETS” (published by Xlibris AU) is a testimony of the author’s journey, describing a life of joy and happiness, failures and disappointments, despair and brokenness.

In this book, Ross portrays how it took courage, strength and tenacity to piece her life back together again. As a last resort, she turned to the One who picked her up and set her on solid ground. God’s unfailing love shone brightly in her darkened world of struggles and the resilience she experienced was a turning point in her life which inspired her to share her story. A painting in words about her early childhood through to a young adult, an unhappy marriage and the ultimate divorce, this book reveals the trials and challenges faced by a single mother of three children. She refused to be beaten and soldiered on only to realize that her trials ‘shaped’ her to become a far better person than she would have otherwise been.

An excerpt from “Facets” (Chapter Six),
The taste of triumph is always sweet, but with failure comes invaluable lessons to be learnt. My once-sunken spirits were now soaring on the wings of an eagle as my recent success in flying colors was the wind beneath my wings.

“FACETS” is a story of ignorance, failures, courage, tolerance, patience, which many people would be easily able to relate to. It also bares wisdom which came from seeking God, bringing about resilience, strength and eventually the much sought after - peace and contentment.
