The Compass is a life transformation novel that will guide you on a journey of self-discovery. At the core ofThe 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 just a backpack, leaving behind his career, friends, family, and home. His travels begin in the dessert of Nevada, continue on to the pristine mountains of the Adirondacks, and then to a medieval village in Romania. At each destination, Jonathan encounters a pivotal person who offers a major life lesson, and he begins to realize that each individual was placed on his path for a reason.

The Compass is a metaphor for the journey of our lives.

In the tradition of the The Alchemist, The Compass provides readers with specific life lessons about authenticity, self-empowerment, and belief in their dreams. As humans we are all connectedby 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.

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
