The Yellow Envelope is an incredibly raw and honest memoir about having the courage to go after a dream. After establishing her career and acquiring everything she always thought she wanted out of life, Kim Dinan realized that she wasn’t happy. She didn’t want that life. She wanted to quit her job to travel the world and write. And she was able to convince her husband to support her in this journey. But that doesn’t mean it was easy. With the help of some amazing friends, Kim and Brian’s plans expanded to include giving away money to whomever they chose while traveling the world. This book is Kim’s account of their time abroad. It’s emotional, it’s funny, it’s so real and so captivating. I wasn’t sure what to expect with this book. You know I don’t often enjoy memoirs, but something about Kim’s email hooked me, and I couldn’t resist accepting a review copy of this book. I’m so glad I did. This book will be one of the ones that sticks with me long after this year is done. Kim’s writing sucked me in right away. But it’s her courage and daring that kept me reading. She had the guts to follow her dream, and it was really hard. This book had all the plot I am always seeking in the books I read. And best of all, it’s true! She really did these things – that rickshaw race. OMG! So amazing. If you enjoy memoirs at all or if you just want a great story, do not miss this book. It’s fantastic!

Loved this book. I am typically not a reader of any nonfiction books, let alone travel or memoir, but this book is written with such honesty and emotion, I couldn't put it down. I think everyone will find enjoyment and inspiration in these pages.

The Yellow Envelope is a refreshing and realistic look at how travel and the kindness of others can transform your life. Before heading out on a trip around the world, Kim and her husband are given a gift to give away during their travels and three rules on how to give it away. These rules unexpectedly help guide Kim’s transformation. Like most transformations, it’s not always an easy or pretty process, and Kim bares her soul to share her transformation with her readers. Kim’s multi-level journey, around the world and into who she is at her core, makes for a riveting story and one that sets this book apart from most other travelogues. Anyone who has the travel bug or has traveled themselves will find this book a great read.
