About the Book

This story begins with the exciting and unpredictable journey of a young man as he comes of age as a traveling musician and poet. His journey takes him across the country through various subcultures and the musical underworld. He experiences the thrill of adventure and discovery but also succumbs to substance abuse and addiction, emotional and relational issues, brushes with the law, and eventually, a near suicide.

Through spiritual healing and a long and hard look at the truth about himself and his purpose, he learns to live and love again. He comes to understand that life is about using the experiences God had brought him through—the hard times and the good, the graceful ones and the talents, and the knowledge He has provided—to live a life with true purpose, meaning, and peace.

About the Author

Jonathan C Wiles is an accomplished writer of prose, poetry, and song. He has spent a lifetime living an artist’s life as a songwriter and poet, and dealt with the underlying depression and emotional issues that often accompany creative people of this ilk. He has battled substance abuse and self destructive tendencies, almost losing his life before finally finding recovery through the healing grace of God and the truth of love, faith, and family. This book is the story of his journey to redemption and peace. Jonathan is a member of the Mississippi Writers’ Guild, Mississippi Poetry Society, and Mississippi Music Program. He treasures everything outdoors, most likely to be found exploring the enchanting forests of the western North Carolina mountains and the mysterious swamplands of the Mississippi Delta. He finds his inspiration in nature, music, a life of hard-earned lessons, and the faith cultivated by God and his loving family. You may contact the author at the following email:
