A Route of Hope: Katie Ruth

Our daughter Katie has just published her first book of poetry.

The book launch was held at the Fox and Hounds, Bishopsgate Road, Englefield Green, Surrey on Saturday 12th December. You can view photos here

“I have, in recent years, learned an extremely valuable lesson about the importance and rewards of perseverance. ‘A Route of Hope’ is a collection of my poetry which has been published with a prayer that I might be able to encourage people.

Anyone who struggles, feels alone, suffers with anxiety or stress; I want to inspire these people to persevere and rest in the knowledge that we are never alone. I hope that my simple poems bring you a smile for the moments you feel unable to. ” – Katie Ruth


After the Rain

Diamonds on the leaves
They’re perfectly round
The blue sky is settled
And there’s much less sound
The grasses looking happy
Waving to the trees
Where the birds are sitting
In the evening breeze
And the flowers are thankful
That now they can show
Their beautiful colours
Early, tomorrow.

At least 10% of the profits from the book are being donated to Umthombo and their work among homeless street children in Durban, South Africa.

Priced £4.99, you may pre-order copies from Katie
