Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Even fiction can have a message and if there is one that I hope readers take away from reading Truth Runs Deep, it would be this: "Love through the differences."

We all have different beliefs and biases based primarily on our life experiences. If we can learn to love, support and nurture each other through our differences -- not in spite of -- just imagine how totally empowered we could be as families, friends, communities and a global village. Loving through differences implies acceptance and respect. 

Isn't that really what each and every one of us desires?

About the Author

Sheila writes in Chapel Hill, North Carolina where she lives with her husband, four of their seven children, a pack of rescued dogs and a hen house full chickens. For fun Sheila enjoys reading mystery and suspense novels and, when the weather is cool, building a bon fire and roasting marshmallows with the kids. If you ask Sheila what is most important to her, she'll tell you that being true to yourself is the only thing that brings pure happiness and joy. How that manifests is different for each person. For Sheila, that meant leaving behind a corporate job to make time for what she most enjoyed: family, writing and motivating others to be all that they can be.

Besides showcasing Callaham's innate story-telling finesse, Truth Runs Deep ties together current controversial topics in society and the Church - both how to love gay Christians (particularly our kids) and how Protestants and Catholics can accept each other into the ecumenical fold. Callaham threads her tale with real, complex characters, stitching past mistakes as a Church body, as a family, and as individuals into a quilt of love.

With heartfelt, poignant moments, Truth Runs Deep draws out thoughtful reflections on the reader's own experience, memories, and values by focusing on bridging the gap of understanding, acceptance, and healing real people and families who are affected throughout America and the world by religious and sexual intolerance.

While a few readers may find that it starts a bit slow and that some of the characters' inner dialogues are similar to each other, the overriding mystery and deep, relevant issues in the Church today pull the reader into the main story, turning page after page to discover the truth behind Father Mario, Sergeant Walker, and the intriguing broken mirror of "society at large" in Hampton, Virginia. This enchanting first novel by Sheila Callaham weaves together an excellent mystery with a thorough understanding of the reality of church politics alongside honest faith and doubt.

This would be a very pertinent and interesting book club or Bible study selection. And, with the author's life coach/facilitator/mediator skills, I think this would be a fascinating and healing study for an evening or day-long author discussion or seminar.

Truth Runs Deep by Sheila Callaham - A truly thought-provoking, soul-searching look at present day issues in the body of Christ and the world.

After speaking to one person, it seems to point the Chief of Police in one direction but he's not so sure now that he's talked to someone else. It takes awhile to discover just what those mysteries are that the chief is privy to but not yet the reader.

Because priests are bound to secrecy in what transpires in a confession, whether in or outside the confessional, it adds an extra dimension to this well-crafted story.

This is one you'll not want to put down.

The book was very good. I was suprise when I realized what the subject was about. However it was written in the best of taste.
I was impressed with the fact that they had resources in the back of the book. I have already told someone about it and showed them the bookcover on my kindle because they want to read it. It is a difficult subject but I must say GREAT JOB!

When I started reading this book, I thought it was just another murder mystery. I had no idea that it would delve into such an emotional, controversial issue. Please take time to read this book. I want to say more but I want you to be drawn into this as I was, not knowing. The feelings and truth are very raw and very real.

While the author displays some talent for writing, this book comes across as a book touting political correctness. The impression given in this story is that the author is writing for her own personal agenda. If that is the case, this book certainly does provide a therapuetic outlet for that.

Watch out James Patterson, Sheila Callaham is in town! A must read for people into suspense and mystery. Luckily I had the time to read it all the way through without stopping, because I did not want to put it down once I started reading it. I was intrigued all the way through wondering what else was going to happen. Great job Sheila! I look forward to your next book.
