As a cabin awaits its form and purpose, an elk seeks comfort in the tall grass, and a man ventures into the woods with his ax. His goal is to find logs that will help him build the walls, floor, and roof of his new home. At the end of the day, he returns to his wagon, his family, and his dreams. As he labors day after day, finally the cabin becomes a reality. He and his family have completed their journey toward a new life--and home. With his dream now fulfilled, Anviel welcomes his wife, Lakina, and their children, Svend and Astrid, to the cabin to laugh, cry, sing, dance, pray, and give thanks for the bounty given to them. As the family ekes out an existence in the serene valley they share with an owl--whose voice haunts Anviel--despair and tribulation eventually visit. Still, the family endures year after year. The children come of age and Anviel works hard to make ends meet--until the owl calls his wife's name, leaving Anviel left wondering when his own time will come. In this poignant tale, an immigrant family embarks on a journey toward a new beginning where a lonely cabin beckons hope for the future and renews their spirit as life comes full circle.

Following the advice of his English teacher, Paul Garner uses his part in a school play to embark upon a journey of discovery. By attempting to rewrite and redirect the story, he finds that his quest assumes reality. Not only do the characters escape direction by his pen but he loses distinction between himself, as author, and the character he plays. He becomes lost within the narrative, which moves in ways not of his choosing. However, the bond between him and the one he seeks is never broken. Whether from dream and memory, part of reality or the image of a goddess, she is always the inspiration for the play. Yet where did the play originate? Jonathan is an orphan; whether he be the dead foster brother of Bethany, the imaginary friend of Daniel or the fostered child of the reclusive Aunt Sheelagh, his tales transform loss into a search for love in all worlds and beyond. Tales of Jonathan is a self exploration of one person’s mind, culminating in his discovery of truth in the deepest chamber. By transcending the restrictions of rationality, he finds a new reality. Dreams which have no end are no longer dreams. His previous loss and grief have become the fiction; the tales of Jonathan are now his reality. It is a story about the power of faith and love. I believe that with reflective thought, the reader will find it a challenging and rewarding book. Nicol addresses the slippery substance of reality from every angle, repeating the main story and many of its key phrases in slightly different contexts each time. While the intellectual exercise is fascinating, it is easy to lose the thread of the story in all of the rearranging, which makes for some challenging reading. --CLARION As Nicol invites readers into dreams and memories cobbled into a Möbius strip, there’s little sense of what’s real and what’s not. The first of seven segments suggests that the novel will concern schoolboy Paul Garner and the enchanting Bethany Dean, who tragically dies young. --KIRKUS There is a certain charm to Nicol’s prose, and he captures difficult emotions (grief, awe, adoration) with notable skill. --BLUEINK
