While establishing himself as the world’s foremost relationship coach, Michael Elliott discovers he is in love with two women at the same time and must choose between them (the soul mate or the special mate) to fulfill his destiny.



Short Summary

Michael Elliott, a relationship coach based in Chicago, is stirred up out of deep sleep by an unusual dream - a beautiful woman leads him to the Pacific Ocean and whispers that the ocean will help him discover his destiny. When Michael is invited to Lima, he wonders if he will find his destiny here.

A mentor's legacy, the sacrifice of Dorothy, and the support of Meher combine to make Michael the preeminent relationship coach. He now longs to return to Dorothy, but he has come to love Meher as well. Dorothy convinces him to choose physical love (Meher) over spiritual love (Dorothy).


Exotic locations - Lima (Peru), Chicago, and India enhance the story and provide compelling visuals. Perhaps, no book or movie has woven a story around Peru, the US, and India (three divergent worlds).
