I loved it from the very beginning and all the way to the end. Paula took me on a journey through Kip's dreams of angels and demons. Or were they Kip's dreams? Great visual descriptive writing let me see Kip's paintings and let me experience the dreams along with Raymond, a priest who just met Kip. Toward the end of the book, Raymond asks this question to a friend. "Do you think its possible for a dream, a dream that is so powerful, so full of desire that the dream is capable of manifesting its elements into our world?" It's a great question. If you want to know the answer, I suggest you read Night Sea Journey by Paula Cappa. I'm fascinated with dreams and the supernatural, so this story fired my imagination. Thanks, Paula for a great read. Kay Lalone

Reviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite Night Sea Journey: A Tale of the Supernatural is a metaphysical literary fantasy by Paula Cappa. Father Raymond Kera is having doubts about his calling; if he ever had indeed been called. His friend and fellow priest, Garcia, lives a different life than Raymond does. He's sworn off the clerical collar he refers to as a noose, and he's been secretly married by a compassionate superior to his beloved, with whom he has a child. Garcia is an at-large priest who preaches in the inner city, sponsors needle exchanges and is considered by some to be a prophet. Raymond is less flashy, and his superior has frequently called him to task for his uninspired sermons and generally lackluster performance. Raymond has petitioned the Vatican for laicization, release from his vows, which was not granted him. Instead, he is sent to a remote island off the Rhode Island coast where his dubious skills as a carpenter will be used to complete construction of the St. Gregory of Nyssa Church. Reading Paula Cappa's metaphysical mythological fantasy, Night Sea Journey: A Tale of the Supernatural, was a profound, vibrant and intensely moving experience for me. I was, quite literally, caught up in the spell Cappa weaves as her characters navigate their ways through mysteries and dreams manifested in the real world. Raymond, Garcia and the artist Kip Livingston are marvelous characters, especially Livingston whose world is recorded in her paintings; the paints she will use in her works instantly determined as she faces the horrors and turbulent landscapes of her dream-states. Cappa masterfully evokes the wild and natural world where the exiled Raymond finds himself -- you can see the waves breaking over the rocky shoreline, smell the salty, humid sea air and hear the cranes and shorebirds as they fly in formation overhead. Night Sea Journey is lovely, atmospheric and, oh, so very, very good. It's most highly recommended.

Night Sea Journey by Paula Cappa This is one fast paced book that will keep you glued to your seat asking, 'Can dreams really come true?' The writer tackles dream interpretation, religious philosophy, the supernatural and tosses in just the right amount of romance to leave the reader quivering, wondering what will happen next.... Her characters come alive with the complexity of their individual dilemmas, Father Raymond Kera, who is questioning the strength of his faith. Father Garcia, Kera's friend, and confidant, who has adapted his own beliefs quite liberally by taking a wife and child. And artist Kip Livingston who believes that Kera can save her from her dreams. A host of other well matched characters bring the story to life. The prose is lyrical, with words so expressive it's magical...... “He flies, full and fast, prowling the hump-backed crests. With a chest full of orange flames, the firehawk hooks his charred wings on a nest of stars. In a hot fit of pride, he races toward her.” With such beautifully descriptive language at the start.....I knew Cappa was taking me on a wonderful journey. A five star book, unequivocally. Highly recommended. This book was a gift from the author in exchange for a fair and impartial review

THIS BOOK IS A DEFINITE PAGE TUNER! From beginning to end you will not want to put it down. Paula has a way of writing that just grabs you and doen't let go. The characters in this book are great and you are likely not to foget them or th is book for a long time. You have have a different dout look on dreams no doubt!Is a ream just a dream or is it something more? you decide after you read this book. I think it is absolute greatness in writing and its I a book you will go back for from time to time to read again. Buy this book you will not regret it. If you like reading about Angels , Demonds and things beyond what you ever imagined you will love this book. I was given this a copy of this book for a honest review and I honestly loved it and I think anyone who takes the chance on reading it will too.
