Linked Lives by Bonny Brookes

“It is an honor,” stated Ms. Brookes, “to be included in this year’s “50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading”. The fact that Linked Lives has enriched the lives of readers by reminding them how important our friendships are to create a life well lived, increases the need for recognition and publicity.  While I am excited to receive this recognition and very much appreciate it, I realize this is really only the the beginning of my work to promote the book.”

Upon the sudden death of Brookes’ best friend, Lori, the burning desire to keep Lori’s memory alive for her children and grandchildren, was the catalyst that brought Linked Lives to reality. Bonny Brookes wrote the first draft of the book in record time: just four short days.

Readers are unanimously giving this book 5-stars on Amazon.

“I just finished a book called LINKED LIVES…which I am going to send to my friend ….based on an actual friendship that lasted over 40 years. One girl stays in town, one roams the country looking for…whatever. IIlnesses, deaths, celebrations, ups, downs, they stay connected even if its only through mail and visits interspersed over the years. Bonny and Lori could be named Linda and Cheryl, with some differences, of course. The author doesn’t hold back, tells the truth in her relationships, her losses and her joy. Anyone would love this book, anyone in the boomer generation NEEDS to read this book. Finished this book searching for my kleenex.”

Another Amazon review states:

It’s been said you’re stuck with family, but have the privilege of choosing your friends. And when friendships last for decades, “till death do us part,” they are more precious than gold. Such is the story Brookes shares in LINKED LIVES, her tribute to her best friend of 40 years, Lori. I fell in love with both these gals. I shared their laughter, their tears, their ups and downs as they traveled through this journey called life. While Lori’s life ended way too early, their shared memories are what Bonny wanted to relay to Lori’s family after her passing. She’s done her friend proud. This is truly a wonderful book in every way and I tip my hat to Bonny for having the strength to tell such an intimate and personal story.


Brookes spends her time writing, photographing animals and nature, playing guitar or piano, talking to animals and exploring the world. She has one grown daughter, 4 cats, and currently calls Southern California home.
