'As It Was'
With this book come thoughts and journeys from days gone by to inspire us all today. A little mystery, excitement, intrigue and magic. Some surprises for you, some joy and happiness too. Hope of another day, another life, another way for our future. 'As It Was' is most of all about "Hope". A hopeful 'Now' brings us a hopeful future.'
