The House at Tyneford, by Natasha Solomons looks to be an excellent novel, filled with history, and so much more.
A Mitzvah can be as simple as helping another person out of a car, or walking someone into a store, helping them across the street, or bringing them a meal or two. A Mitzvah can be defined through helping in a non-financial manner. You can volunteer your time in a worthy organization, participate in a running or walking event for charity, visit a senior citizen at home and read to them, help clean up in your community, help at your synagogue, etc.
Help because you want to, not because you feel forced into a situation.
Try to make sure your life is filled with mitzvot, not because you should, not because you feel obligated, not because you are being manipulated into fulfilling mitzvot, but because you MUST, and because you have a deep desire to help humanity in some fashion, with an almost innate humility and humbleness in your heart.
