A minister who lives in Montrose has had her first book published with another five on the way.

The Rev, Eliza Armstrong was minister at Woodside Parish Church in Aberdeen and then Greenock East United Reformed Church before moving to Montrose with her husband, Ron, 10-and-a-half years ago to retire.

The Rev. Armstrong has had her first book, Where Is Tomorrow?, published by Xlibris, which is about death and coping with loss.

She said: “This book is a book of hope and thoughtfulness.

“It is about life after death. Life goes on.”

She was born in the tiny village of Sterling on the Buchan coast.

She studied Systematic Theology and Philosophy at Aberdeen University. Years later, she decided to research for an M.Th at the university.

She added: “I wrote my dissertation when I was at university. I thought it was silly and put it on a shelf. Years later I was looking at it and thought this is not just a silly dissertation.

“It went from 5000 words to a book. I spent five years researching it.”

She added the book does not have to be read in one sitting or in order but each chapter can be read separately.

The Rev. Armstrong has dedicated Where Is Tomorrow? to her husband Ron, who she says has been by her side for 58 years and her eldest grandson Jonathan who helped her with computer skills to put the book together.

The Rev. has also sent five children’s books about the adventures of cavalier King Charles spaniel called Chumley, named after a family pet, to Xlibris to be published.

Where Is Tomorrow? can be bought online on Amazon. It will be available to buy in shops in the near future.
