What do you do when the man you pledged your life to breaks your heart and shatters your dreams? You pack your bags and travel the big, wide world to find your destiny--and your true love . . .

Ten years ago, a young and naive Cassie married her first serious boyfriend, believing he would be with her forever. Now her marriage is in tatters and Cassie has no career or home of her own. Though she feels betrayed and confused, Cassie isn't giving up. She's going to take control of her life. But first she has to find out where she belongs . . . and who she wants to be.

Over the course of one year, Cassie leaves her sheltered life in rural Scotland to stay with her best friends living in the most glamorous cities in the world: New York, Paris, and London. Exchanging comfort food and mousy hair for a low-carb diet and a gorgeous new look, Cassie tries each city on for size as she searches for the life she's meant to have . . . and the man she's meant to love.
Garth Callaghan has been crafting lunches and napkin notes placed in those lunches since his daughter, Emma, was a small child. As she grew older, the notes became more meaningful. Shortly after she turned twelve, the notes became a legacy. Garth had been diagnosed with kidney cancer and was given a grim prognosis.

Garth has now been diagnosed with cancer four times and been given an 8 percent chance to live long enough to watch Emma graduate from high school. Yet rather than dwell on the dire facts, he takes each day as a gift and a chance to connect with those he loves. And he promised to write 826 napkins so that Emma will have one every day until she graduates from high school--no matter what happens.

In the pages of this book, Garth continues his mission, spurring readers to appreciate life and the relationships they have through the simple act of composing a handwritten note to a loved one. A reflection on what it means to be a father, what we want to leave behind once we're gone, but mainly a celebration of the human spirit, Napkin Notes is a reminder of the power we all hold to make every moment count.

In The Law of Divine Compensation: On Work, Money, and Miracles the #1 New York Times bestselling author Marianne Williamson provides a unique perspective on our financial condition through the lens of A Course in Miracles. She reveals a path to abundance by way of a powerful spiritual principle called the Law of Divine Compensation. The Law says that when we lack faith in our higher selves and focus on the negative, we create and perpetuate our own negative circumstances; conversely, when we have faith in God and in love and all that can go right in our lives, we open ourselves to receive the miracles the universe is holding for us.

While millions have suffered heartbreaking and seemingly intractable financial woes, every one of us possesses the power to believe that something else is possible, that our destinies can change, that a miracle can happen. This simple shift in how we think can have a monumental effect on what happens next.

In The Law of Divine Compensation you will discover how the power of your thoughts can attract—or deflect—miraculous breakthroughs in your life. Williamson reveals that the Law is not about hoping, dreaming, or wishing we'd win the lottery; rather it is about faith as a mental and emotional muscle we must exercise in order to benefit from. This powerful spiritual principle will us help us overcome financial stress and unleash the divine power of abundance. If we have faith in God's promise of prosperity for all, we need never fear the future.
