ARE YOU LIVING THE LIFE YOU WERE DESTINED FOR?

The Compass is a life transformation novel that will guide you on a journey of self-discovery. At the core ofThe Compass are specific life lessons about belief systems, authenticity, 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 existence and plans for the future.

Numb and paralyzed by grief, Jonathan 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, to journey around the world. 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 every 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, and represents a specific element of life.

The Compass is a metaphor for the journey of life, with its intermittent peaks and valleys. Each destination Jonathan visits is unique with a diverse mix of people, representing the kaleidoscope of our individual lives. His journey of self-discovery will move you to contemplate your own life, gaining valuable lessons along the way.

In the tradition of The Alchemist, at its core The Compass teaches specific life lessons about belief systems, authenticity, self-empowerment, believing in dreams, and understanding who you truly are. As humans we are all connected—by love, by pain, and sometimes even by tragedies or events we cannot control. Each one of us travels a very specific and unique path, yet we are linked by experiences and emotions. In this connectedness, there is life. Reading this story will lead you to ask the ultimate question:

What will move your inner compass?

From AudioFile:

Jonathan's life has changed in ways that are inconceivable to him, so he takes off, not sure where he's going. At each stop in his journey he discovers something about himself that moves him along to further self-discovery. Dan John Miller presents Jonathan as a calm, somewhat detached, self-absorbed young man. Miller speaks with a conviction that makes listeners believe in the significance of Jonathan's discoveries and in the wisdom of the characters he encounters on his journey. Miller uses varying accents and vocal tones to distinguish these characters and the regions Jonathan is passing through when he meets them. J.E.M. AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
