    'A fantastic motivational book' Sunday Independent

    When was the last time you were really excited about your life?
    Do you suspect you have settled rather than made as much of your talents as you could have?
    Do you dismiss ambitions you once had as 'youthful delusions'?

    Norah Casey wants you to think again!
    Norah had a life that she thought was the right fit for her. Then she lost her husband and was forced to take stock. Despite a stellar career as a businesswoman she realised that in her own way, she had settled. It was time to rethink everything.
    In Spark! Norah shares her journey the lessons she has learned. She explains how we remade her life and how we can all renew our passion and our ambitions and become the best we can be.
    This isn't about blinding flashes of brilliance or razzle dazzle You don't have to be super-clever or endlessly fascinating to recover your spark. But if you're prepared to do a bit of homework it's amazing how quickly you will rediscover a more splendid you!
