The Journey is (so far as we know) the first book of its kind: a full-length novel in which the subject of network marketing plays a pivotal role. It is the story of a young woman, Annie, who grows up full of hopes and dreams, marries, then watches in despair over the next decade and a half as her dreams stall and her marriage falters. This chapter-length excerpt details Annie's chance encounter with her husband's grandmother, which proves to be a pivotal point in her journey towards finding her true path.
