Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Dear Voracious Reader: 

Thanks for considering Rebecca.  Before you decide whether or not to read it, I'd like to set the record straight on a few things you may have heard about the book.

I did not write Rebecca to make a statement about Christianity, and I did not write Rebecca to promote the "gay agenda," to whatever extent such a thing even exists.

I wrote Rebecca to immerse myself in a viewpoint I've never experienced.  I wrote it so that other people like myself could maybe experience the same thing, and so that people who identify with the protagonist can realize they are not alone.  

Rebecca involves a lesbian main character, going through a very difficult time in her life.  

If that sentence sounds familiar or makes you uncomfortable, I wrote Rebecca for you.

- Adam J Nicolai

More About the Author

Hi. My name is Adam J Nicolai.

I write novels that come from the fear I feel everyday, the wild hopes that drive me, and the things I wish were true. My writing may have swearing. It may deal with uncomfortable topics. It may go to places none of us want to visit. The problem is, in our nightmares and daydreams, while driving or showering or sleeping, we all visit these places anyway.

I write so we don't have to visit them alone.

This was hard to get into initially. It's a perspective I am not familiar with in any way, similar to The Average American Male by Chad Kultgen, but instead of a straight male it was a repressed lesbian. Her struggle was very accurate in regards to strong religious upbringing but at the same time dynamic in that she was already dealing with her future forever changed. I would definitely consider this a horror novel in a Shirley Jackson-ish respect, events and dialogues that can be easily conveyed as rhetoric of the mentally ill but at that same time have enough weight to be otherworldly or sinister. I think Adam J Nicolai should get a lot more credit for being a man and trying to flesh out the story arc from this perspective. I feel he was successful but again I'm a gay male and its not my place to say it's accurate. However, I felt it was truly jarring. I heartily recommend this to anyone who loves slow building horror, vividly descriptive journeys through a mind during duress, or simply a story about the varieties of unconventional love that exist today.

Due to the visceral reaction I had to Alex, a book that truly tore at this mother's heart, I expected the some emotional connection to Rebecca's protagonist. I wasn't, however, prepared to find that this independent author nailed the experience of an exhausted mother of an infant. Rebecca speaks the unspoken thoughts born of exhaustion and frustration. Like Alex, I was unable to put Rebecca down until I finished it.

Wow. What an emotional story. The author nailed it on the head with his descriptions of the feelings a new, very inexperienced young mother might have. Honestly, how a MAN was able to do this is a mystery to me,, this is a very talented author! While I never had that degree of negative thoughts when I was a new Mom, I could 100% relate to the raw emotion portrayed,, the exhaustion, feeling overwhelmed, the pain of nursing,, I was drawn in from page 1 until the very end. Bravo... Keep writing Mr. Nicolai, you have a new fan.

I found Rebecca to be a pretty emotional story. The feelings you experience as you read the thoughts of Sarah, an unprepared young mother, are intense. You're disturbed, worried, angry, scared... but then become hopeful and happy as new life emerges.

I was drawn in within the first few minutes of reading, just as I was with the author's first book, Alex. Another beautifully written story, and one that I'd definitely recommend!

I couldn't put this down. I related to this book so much because my family raised me as a Jehovah's Witness. I left when I was 15. The way the author describes the thoughts Sarah had in the beginning hit very close to home for me because I suffered from postpartum depression when I had my first child. I really liked how descriptive and honest this book was. Props to the author. Definitely read this.

Just read the negative reviews on this book and you will see why the author wrote it. The bigotry that exists out there against homosexuals is an issue that must be dealt with honestly. This book does that. For those who say he was "hard on" the church, I tell you that he was NOT. I live in the Bible Belt and the opinions/words expressed by the preacher and Sarah's mother are commonplace. Homosexuals are outcast; labeled as sinners going to hell unless they "fight temptation". The emotional damage this does to young adults is evidenced by the number of gay teen suicides we see all the time now. And the gay bullying on social media sites that is so commonplace.

I know that a lot of readers found it hard to read Sarah's story in the beginning. But that is sometimes the true face of motherhood. It isn't always a Hallmark Card moment. Sarah has a baby that she felt emotionally pressured to have from a boy she didn't even like, all so she could appear to be "normal" to her family, friends and church. It's disgusting that our gay youth is treated this way in real life, and not just fiction.

The Messenger put a lot of people off. But he was NOT some supernatural demon who possessed her. Nonsense. They totally missed the point. He was all of the bigoted voices of the world put together inside of her mind. Everything she'd heard spoken about her, all the hate she'd experienced up to that point, evolved into this dark voice that constantly tried to put her down and make her fail. Did Sarah need therapy? Yes. So did her mother and especially the pastor. He didn't love his church members. He judged them. If you think this doesn't happen in churches then you need to pull your head out of the sand.

Rebecca was a bit of a difficult read for me. So much so that after i finished I wrote the author to share my opinion. It is a story about a mothers love and the sacrifices she is willing to make (or not make) for her child. It is also a story about hate - and thats the subject that hurts. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a good book that has painful issues and redemption at its core.
