Carrie’s Synopsis and Review of “When Gulls Fly Low”

A Novel by Ned B. JohnsonWhen Gulls Fly Low Front Cover
© 2004 (251 pages)


The story begins….

 Henry Taylor, an accomplished author, moves his life to the picturesque village of Arch Cape on Oregon’s Northern Coast, to complete his fifth novel. Within days of settling into his routine is interrupted by a dream of such lucidity it shakes him off balance for a week. In the dream he meets a woman who he is destined to live out a real life adventure of sublime love, forgiveness, faith & collaboration with the enemy ~ only he doesn’t know that yet.

 Lessons (what you will learn) 

  • Forgiveness & Empathy – a different take on ‘putting yourself in someone else’s shoes’, get beyond anger in your relationships, learn how to form intimate & mutually beneficial relationships, your worst enemy could be your biggest opportunity staring you in the face 
  • Living with integrity – Conflict Resolution  – Do the right thing– achieving harmony in your relationships through living with integrity, taking personal responsibility, navigating difficult relationships, gaining alternative perspectives, being open to the lessons 
  • Learning through experience & Recognising opportunity – everything we experience is for a reason, a lesson to be learned. We can be levelled by challenging experiences, or we can recognise them for what they are (lessons meant to be passed) & what they are meant to introduce into our lives (recognising opportunity) 
  • Perhaps there is more to it than meets the eye – a look into the world of lucid dreaming, destiny and how we all work together on the other side to accomplish our dreams and learn what we need to learn here on earth.
