When her father passed away in 2006, Linda Cohen's busy life as a mother, wife, and entrepreneur came to a screeching halt. She took a spiritual sabbatical to work through her grief, and she came out of it resolved to embark upon a project: perform one thousand acts of kindness-mitzvahs-to honor her father's memory.1,000 Mitzvahs shares Cohen's two-and-a-half-year journey from sorrow to inspiration through simple daily acts of kindness. She presents each mitzvah as a short vignette, and the myriad forms they take-from helping the elderly to donating to good causes to baking and collecting food for others-highlight the many ways in which one person can touch the lives of others. As she pursues her quest, Cohen finds that her life is improved by these small acts-that every time she goes out of her way to do something good for someone else, she enhances her own well-being.More than a touching story of a daughter's love for her father, 1,000 Mitzvahs is a testament to the transformational power of kindness, and a call to arms for those who would like to follow in Cohen's footsteps with their own mitzvahs-no matter how large or how small.

She's in love with Clovis, though, and he says he loves her, too... But there's a coldness in his eyes that makes her wonder if he really does--or if he's just using her prophetic gift for his own gain.King Sygarius, meanwhile, wants Nimia back. When he captures her and sexually enslaves her again, she discovers a crystal chalice inscribed with a design that echoes those tattooed on her body. And when Clovis rescues her from Sygarius, she steals the chalice to take with her.A Christian priest suspects it's the Holy Grail, but Nimia has a strong feeling it's a remnant of her lost tribe, the Phanne. But even the chalice cannot tell her if the child she carries belongs to Clovis... or to his greatest enemy: Sygarius.
