A Fiction Christian Suspense
amazonShort blurb:Shrouded in mystery, a precious relic known as Il Testamento, or The Proof, circulated among the early Christians for centuries. Before their deaths, its guardians hid it from their adversaries, leaving only a crude map of its location. For centuries, it lay in darkness. Until now. Reports of its existence have resurfaced, inciting an ancient rivalry between a ruthless group that seeks to destroy it, and a secret association that lusts for its power. Summoned to Siena by a grandfather he has never met, Gabriel Dolcini is thrust into a dark maze of danger. And into his divine destiny.Link to Amazon (Kindle copy preferred):

Reader Reviews:Cheryl Colwell's new novel, The Proof, did just about everything you could ever want a novel to do: Captivating characters who you came to care about and want to know more about; scene development that was so clear you could almost reach out and touch the walls; adventure (even including swords), that kept the pages turning as fast as possible; plot turns and twists that were surprising, yet believable; historic and geographic settings that were like travelogs and time machines in their clarity; and gentle teachings about both truth and character. Did I leave anything out that you hope to find in adventure fiction?
Oh! The writing! Cheryl is a seriously good writer. The book is primarily set in Italy, but the adventures take place over 20 centuries as a religious relic is fought over by good guys and thugs. The relic is believed to possess supernatural power, not just monetary value, setting up the ongoing tension.
If you like mystery, suspense, adventure, and intrigue in historic settings, you can't possibly go wrong with The Proof.
Passionate about all things creative, Cheryl finds inspiration in the countryside of Ashland, Oregon - her family's ancestral home and the perfect venue for her interests in writing, gardening, art, and relationships.
John, her husband, best friend, and chiropractor, keeps her in shape for gardening and writing long into the night. They are delighted to have four unique and talented children and three grandchildren. A smart and playful English Shepherd makes their empty nest a happy place. Cheryl says, "I am blessed beyond measure to know Jesus Christ as my Lord and friend."
She began writing fiction in 2007. Following the theme, "Stunning Suspense," her characters visit stunning locations while they pursue adventurous quests peppered with mystery, suspense, and romance. She thinks of her novels as "cozy" suspense.
