welcome to the journey
...that just may change your life.
Unlike most series which are linear on a timeline, the Compass Series walks around one storyline for the first 3 books, with the fourth book carrying on where the others left off. It is one story from four vantage points. Each book fills in more details about the main characters and is written from a different character’s perspective.
Book “N”, lays out the main storyline from Joshua’s perspective. I liken it to laying the foundation for a house. I’ve had many interesting comments about “N” by readers so far. Some have said it is like a spiritual experience, one person related it to the feeling that the perfect song at just the right moment gives you. Other people have likened it to other books they have connected with. But no matter what your thoughts are on it, the reason it was written and the reality of the experience it invokes is to lead you to where you could not go, without it. This is why the whole series is so important. It was designed to be more than fiction, it was designed to illuminate the next step on your journey through life.
In Book “S”, which is the second book in the series, you will find the story behind Bridget. You will learn the many reasons why she made the choices she did. You will also see further into what happened on that stormy night.
Book “E”, which is the third book in the series, is from Ralph’s perspective. This has a surprising twist to it. And was the most difficult for me to write. From the beginning I’ve told people that if they like “N” then they will love “S” but they will struggle with “E”. For good reason, we tend to prefer the good parts of life but shy away from dark realities.
“W” is the last book of the series. It is the rest of the story, and I consider it the great crescendo. It ties up loose ends, brings clarity to cloudiness, and ultimately helps the reader carry the understanding and revelation out of the story and back into their own life circumstances.
One thing that has become very clear to me in the process of writing and editing these books is that it is beyond a story. This whole series is about an experience. I didn’t set out to try and make people feel things, I was directed to write a book and so I sat down and wrote, and what you will find within the pages of this series is the product. I believe with all my heart that this series is not just about Joshua and Bridget’s journey. It is the story of all of our lives in some way or another. And the true miracle of the story is its ability to uncover your wounds, reveal the path of healing, and encourage you to reach out your hand, receive the invitation and take the next step.
