Heaven is a popular subject these days. How is Heaven and Beyond different than so many other books out there on the afterlife? This is a work of fiction. I make no claim to have had a “vision of heaven” or anything resembling it.

Recently, Bondfire had the privilege of releasing Rescuing Faith: A Novel by first time author Carol James. Carol was kind enough to answer some questions about the story and her journey as an author. 1) Tell us about how this book came about and why you decided to write it.
