Kim Dinan's The Yellow Envelope (April 2017) received a wonderful review from Booklist:
"This is a capably narrated, decidedly introspective, soul-searching travel memoir of the Eat, Pray, Love variety and will likely draw the same audience."
The full Booklist review will be in their March 1st issue. So be on the look out for it!
What Would You Do with a Yellow Envelope?
After Kim and her husband decide to quit their jobs to travel around the world, they're given a yellow envelope containing a check and instructions to give the money away. The only three rules for the envelope: Don't overthink it; share your experiences; don't feel pressured to give it all away.
Through Ecuador, Peru, Nepal, and beyond, Kim and Brian face obstacles, including major challenges to their relationship. As she distributes the gift to people she encounters along the way she learns that money does not have a thing to do with the capacity to give, but that giving―of ourselves―is transformational.
