GRADY HARP REVIEW on AMAZON.COM for THE SOUL WHISPERER by J.M. Harrison

5.0 out of 5 stars
on April 5, 2016

British author and philosopher Jonathan Harrison is best described 
as a Teacher of Being. In his previous book WE ARE ALL ONE 
he gently but firmly and supportingly guided his readers towards a 
path of self-realization. And in his superbly written next book 
NAKED BEING: UNDRESSING YOUR MIND, TRANSFORMING 
YOUR LIFE he advanced his ability to assist the reader in purging 
the misconceptions of self, offers an understanding of the non-duality 
(not separating the individual from the universe but instead realizing 
that all is one) of each of our existences. And in his third book 
YOU are THIS: AWAKENING TO THE LIVING PRESENCE 
OF YOUR SOUL Jonathan opened his personal experiences and 
before delving into the content of the book he offered a very helpful 
glossary of terms that appears to be a signature in his writing.

Now we come to a novel – an unusual and particularly refreshing step
for a writer of self-improvement books – and he manages to underline
the concepts of his previous books in the form of story, another way
to communicate that processes of thinking that occur in his probing
mind.

Jonathan offers a synopsis that distills his tale well: ‘Following personal
tragedies and spiraling financial problems, Londoners Alex and Sara
are desperate to find ways to rediscover their zest for life. A free holiday
provides the perfect opportunity for a second chance, but not long after
arriving in France they discover that all is not what it seems...
A series of shocking revelations challenge their understanding of
humanity, as they are propelled into a dangerous world governed by a
ruthless occult society. Magical relics and extra-terrestrial objects 
promise to unlock incredible secrets, but what extremes will people 
go to in order to attain them? In a modern-day spiritual quest, Alex 
and Sara will be forced to take control of their destiny, facing their 
own demons along the way as time counts down, for them and the 
entire human race...’

As fine as his philosophically bent books are, Jonathan proves here 
that he is able to weave a terrific story that is utterly involving and 
allows the reader to grow along with the characters in a manner that 
hints at his previous books. He is a very fine author.
