Jonah The Seer

by Howard Littleson

In 1936 Jonah Cook was twelve years old. He lived in a tiny rural Michigan town gripped, as all towns were, by the economic ravages of the Great Depression. He was in every way a typical boy, or at least he thought he was, until the day of his Uncle Jasper’s funeral when he discovered he had a bizarre gift. This gift, or curse as some would later come to refer to it, sent Jonah head long into a hair raising supernatural journey that brought him face to face with his greatest fears and released unintentional consequences that forced him to fight for his freedom, to prove that he wasn’t schizophrenic, and to protect the lives of those he loved the most.

It starts with a small town graveyard and the secrets buried beneath its granite markers. The journey continues through the stately halls of a well-intentioned asylum of the day where murky diagnoses and crude courses of treatment force Jonah to question everything including his own sanity. Finally, the journey takes the reader back to the tiny town of Davisburg where Jonah struggles to live a normal life, find purpose and meaning for his controversial gift and put away, once and for all, the demons that haunt him.
