The village of Whitwick is a simple one, like many British villages were around the country in the early twentieth century. Within its boundaries of pubs, small corner shops, farms and coalmines, is a small world in itself. Every person knows every other person and that sense of community and playing one's part in that community is what gives a sense of purpose to each citizen. ‘The Man Within the Compass' is home to Zachariah and Sarah Parker, a hardy couple that do everything together, a real team. Vital members of their community, Zachariah and Sarah, with their modest wealth but big dreams, build their lives and the future of their family in the walls of the Compass inn and in the boundaries of Whitwick. Though they won't change the world, ensuring the security and prosperity of generations to come is all they need.
