5 Deep-Dive Short Stories from the Heroes of the Order of Thaddeus
Over the years, thousands of fans have been thrilled and entertained by Silas Grey, Celeste Bourne, Naomi Torres, and Matt Gapinski—catapulting the Order of Thaddeus series to the bestseller lists on Amazon for religious fiction, often launching as number-one new releases, and garnering raving and enthusiastic reviews. Along the way, these fans have gained a dose of insight into faith and been inspired for the journey.
Now comes a collection of short stories from J. A. Bouma that dive deeper into our heroes’ backstories—plumbing the depths of their tragedies and triumphs with the same craft and care he has given to the page-turning action-adventure thrillers.
First, Silas and his best friend find themselves on a mission in Iraq as community-relation managers for Uncle Sam—when something unexpected happens. Torres explores a complicated story we all can relate to at some level when we ask ourselves why we do the things we do, especially the things that hurt others and ourselves. In the third story, Celeste shares part of a past she would rather leave undiscovered. Gapinski retells some of his story to a special someone in the future, wondering how they will react. Finally, we return to Silas where he is grappling with the fallout from a fateful day—making a discovery that will change his life forever.
Each of these stories have been revealed at different times in the novels, but are released for the first time as stand-alone stories to give new depth and meaning to these beloved characters.
