IN HIS SOUL

Lessons from My Brother's Schizophrenia
Release Date: April 28, 2018

Call Richmond went missing.


Twenty years later he showed up on a family member’s doorstep. He was homeless, broken, and suffering from paranoid schizophrenia. For the next fourteen years, his sister Rebecca took on the struggle to restore him as they faced the dark traumas and painful memories of their past.


The Light in His Soul: Lessons from My Brother’s Schizophrenia is her intimate memoir of helping Call as she learns that his extraordinary gifts are helping heal her and her family. Both Call and Rebecca bring light to the dark shadows of their past.

The Light in His Soul is based on the award-winning documentary A Sister’s Call

"The power of this memoir lies in the way it demystifies mental health issues by examining them from a deeply personal perspective. Individuals and families facing similar experiences will certainly find solace from it... A moving, passionate, personal narrative of trauma and healing."

Kirkus Reviews

“This delightful story is a must read for anyone who loves another soul living with mental health issues. Rebecca shows us that the wonderful parts are still there, such as genuine love, humor, compassion and deep spirituality even when hidden by the illness. Recovery really can happen. Read this story and leave with hope!"
