Compass of the Heart

When Steve Bernard finds his college classmate Ava Jones stranded in the rain, he takes his chance to be a knight in shining armor and offer her a ride home. Only instead of a white steed, he’s driving a white Volkswagen camper van named Pearl. 

State by state, Ava and Steve get to know each other on a road trip of a lifetime. When they reach the West Coast, will the compass of Ava’s heart point toward a new home?

Compass of the Heart is a short story originally included in the Loving Hearts Anthology in honor of Richard and Mildred Loving.
