I am inspired by the desire to communicate the fact that God loves all people of every nation and social standing and that he desires to connect with individuals in every age … to change his church ‘from one degree of glory to another,’” Waters says.

When a Puritan of noble birth joins his father to fight for religious freedom in England, he witnesses something that shakes his beliefs in “Blood and Roses” (published by WestBow Press), authored by Jacqueline E. Waters.

Simon, a noble Puritan, joins the Parliamentarians in their struggle for religious autonomy in 17th-century England.

When he witnesses the execution of the King of England at the hands of the Puritan New Model Army, he questions the values of his faith.

Additionally, the book explores the lives of three other characters – a royalist, a servant and another noble – whose separate yet parallel stories converge with that of Simon’s to form a complex journey toward collective spiritual realization.

“I am inspired by the desire to communicate the fact that God loves all people of every nation and social standing and that he desires to connect with individuals in every age … to change his church ‘from one degree of glory to another,’” Waters says.
