The Compassby Tammy Kling
Synopses & Reviews
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 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 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.
The philosophy that everyone is connected is a major thread within this transformational parable. Each person travels a specific and unique path, yet all are linked by experiences and emotions.
A groundbreaking, inspirational story that leads the reader on his or her own personal life journey
