About the Book

The Compass

What Will Move Your Compass?

THE COMPASS is a life transformation novel that will guide you on a journey of self-discovery. At the core of THE COMPASS are specific lessons about belief systems and understanding who you really are in order to live out your destiny. Jonathan, the main character, escapes his suburban life after a tragedy that alters his plans for the future.

Paralyzed by grief, he decides to journey across the globe in an effort to realign his inner compass. He sets off with a backpack leaving behind his career, friends, family, and home. His travels begin in the dry desert of Nevada, and continue on to the pristine mountains of the Adirondacks, and then to a medieval village in Romania. In each destination Jonathan encounters one pivotal person who offers a major life lesson, and he begins to realize that each individual was placed there for a reason.

THE COMPASS is a metaphor for the journey of our lives.

In the tradition of THE ALCHEMIST, THE COMPASS provides you with specific life lessons about authenticity, self-empowerment, and believing in your dreams. As humans we are all connected—by love, pain, and sometimes even by tragedies or events we cannot control. Each one of us travels a unique path, yet we are linked by experiences and emotions. In this connectedness, there is life.
