Owlstones: a tale by Philip M Solem

Nome Ogrodni is forced into the wild Outlands seeking money to save his ancestral home. He finds fortune in the service of a dangerous man, who guarantees either success or death. Nome fails the man and loses almost all. Ravenna Rosealice enters with her own story, losing all and fleeing abduction. Their stories become one, as they are caught up in a travel drama of war and prison, heroism and despair, loyalty, betrayal, and love. Owlstones is a tale of the loss of all that was hoped for, replaced with experiences of transformation and joy. "Nome could not have known he would be eating supper in his own cozy house for the last time, sleeping in his own bed for the last night. He could not know that he would become a traveler on the open road (which is no road at all), that the love of his life would just walk up to him and sit down; that, without intending it--impossible to imagine--he would change the fate of his country. Good thing he knew none of this, for he slept well that night."

About the Author

Philip Solem began writing Owlstones in 1985, finished it in three years, and read it in 1988 as a serial on Radio KAXE in Grand Rapids, Minnesota. After that, the manuscript lay in a file drawer for the next twenty-eight years. He happened upon it in late 2014 while cleaning out files, but kept reading it instead. During a stay in Mexico, he gave the tale the re-write it needed earlier. Philip Solem is also the author, with Jacqueline Vesel Solem, of Such a Road: autobiography of a marriage (2008). Jackie and Phil live in rural Bovey, Minnesota.
