KINDNESS

A simple act of kindness can go a long way to soothe frayed nerves and weary spirits in this negative hate-filled world .

This week is designated as the Jan Hawke Random Acts of Kindness Week at the RAVE REVIEWS BOOK CLUB.

It simply feels good to do something for someone solely because you want to!

Today is also RRBC and RWISA Author, Peggy Hattendorf‘s birthday! So in honor of her birthday, the first person who responds in the comments below, who has not yet read her book, will receive an eBook of “Son of My Father – A Family Dynasty!”

Here is my review of this book. I read it in July of last year.

This was an enjoyable read for me. The best part of the book, in my opinion, was the climactic ending. It was totally unexpected. Early on in the story, I figured out who the arrogant young man, Christian, was and his relationship to the powerful and rich tycoon, Jonathan Barrington. With only one daughter, Christiana, to carry on the family legacy and fortune, the intrusion of the young man irked her to no end. I won’t give away any spoilers, but I could easily see this book made into a Lifetime or Hallmark movie. Lots of drama unfolds throughout the story. At times, it seemed redundant and moved a little slow, but the ending made up for it. If you like plot twists, family drama, high stakes business gambling, you will enjoy this story. Don’t spoil it and read the ending first. 🙂

Here is the Book Trailer:

Do something kind for someone today! It doesn’t have to cost money, only your effort! Let’s make the world brighter through random acts of kindness!

  1. The above quote reminded me of another: “My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.” May this religion pervade all around humanity.
    Lovely post Jan. Thanks for sharing the review of Peggy’s book.

  2. I can’t say enough about the importance of kindness, Jan. People forget what it even means.
    I had bosses who told a confidant that they saw my kindness as stupidity! Meanwhile others define it as charity or even insincerity.
    No. Kindness is what can save this poor planet.
    Happy birthday to your friend. Thanks for the review.
    Hugs.

  3. We need more kindness in the world. Even little overtures, no matter how small can make a difference in someone’s life.

    I was just thinking of Jan the other day. She is sorely missed. What a nice thing to do in her memory.

    Happy birthday to Peggy and congratulations on her book. It sounds intriguing!

  4. Thanks, Mae. The one thing we can hope for after we leave this earthly walk is that someone remembers us. That is what we’ve done for Jan Hawke. She will be forever missed. She always had a smile and a kind word! Thanks for stopping by! Hugs!
