This is a well-written story by an author who walked around with pencils when she was a young child. Personally, I am glad she scribbled in her youth and as an adult wrote this suspense filled novel. I personally know how teachers can influence us - as my English teacher became my mentor. She and I still keep in touch. Like this amazing author - I would also like to thank my teachers.

I believe anyone who is looking for a good read will be hooked once you start reading Truth Runs Deep.

Most of the book takes place in a small town in Virginia. The narrative follows members of a local Catholic church, the town police chief, and a newspaper reporter.

Although, as the story began to take shape I could tell that the author was not necessarily endorsing the religious aspects but rather including them because they were important to the characters in the story.

Rumors, Murder, Scandal and the Catholic Church. It’s not what you think.

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 has a bit more information. 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.

I can't remember a book evoking so much emotion, the torment of LGBTQ youth, especially those in "religious" families torn between familial love and perceived spiritual obligation is so beautifully and painfully portrayed here. Thank You Sheila, for telling this story!!!!!

Author and success coach Sheila Callaham splits her working hours between the two things she enjoys most: writing and motivating others to be their best.
