New York, NY – Entertainment Insider – The book “Saying Thanks and Beyond” is born out of the experiences and reflections of the author, Ralph Mosgrove, and his late wife who had suffered a bad fall, which rendered her disabled. As they moved forward following the tragedy, the couple experienced kindness and compassion from strangers they met along the way. This inspired the author to write a book that revolves around the topic of gratitude.
The words “thank you” were a common exchange when author Ralph Mosgrove’s wife, Elsie, became disabled from a fall, breaking her hip and causing a compression fracture at T12 and L1 of the vertebra. Confined to using a four-wheel walker, she experienced the kindness of strangers who stood aside to allow her to enter before them.
The Mosgrove’s took notice of the kindness offered and wondered how one could make “thank you” more meaningful in response. In Saying Thanks and Beyond, Ralph explores ways to respond to acts of kindness, to go beyond the words, and to find possibilities. He offers ideas to inspire you to become a better person and give someone else that emotional lift–like an elderly person who lost their independence or a soldier who can’t open a door for himself because of loss of limb. Mosgrove emboldens you to change your world and give a legacy of yourself to the generation who is watching.
Currently, the book is under negotiation with Harper Collins and is trying to solidify terms with the publisher. “It is a great honor to represent book like this. We are all excited and we are looking forward to finally ink a contract with the publisher” as per Mark Alvarez (Acquisitions & Development).
