A story of best friends

Linked Lives by Bonny Brookes epitomizes true friendship

Received a note today…

Linked Lives by Bonny Brookes

Linked Lives is a two-time international book award winner.

I received the following note from a woman who recently read my book, Linked Lives.

You owe me….one whole box of Kleenex tissue! Please Jesus, God almighty, for cripes sake, I can’t stop crying. You hit a nerve…I am you, and my best friend, since I was 11, is Cheryl (to whom this book is going). She stayed in the town she grew up in, and where I lived for 4 years…I spent my life living around the country. And that’s just the start…we are now 58 years old.

Bonny. thank you for touching my heart.

Thank you Linda, for taking the time to write to me! Your note has made all the months I spent writing, editing and going through the publishing process worth it. Thank you!

If you’ve read Linked Lives, I’d love to hear from you. If you haven’t, get your copy today!

Ever heard of International Friendship Day?

Have you ever heard of International Friendship Day? It’s a day that’s been celebrated for nearly five decades by several southern South American countries. But why celebrate friendships? What’s the big deal? The day originated in acknowledgement that friendship plays an important role in maintaining peace between people (and countries/cultures). Through the years, study after study has also shown close confidants outside of our families are very important to our health and sanity. Today it’s celebrated around the world and this year International Friendship Day falls on Sunday, August 3rd.

LINKED LIVES, the 2014 Beverly Hills International Book Award Winner – Relationships (ISBN: 0966134214 / Publisher: Wizard of Words) by Bonny Brookes, beautifully portrays such a friendship. This story, as shown by the reviews below, is filled with raw emotion, successes and tragedies, encapsulates the truest form of unconditional love and support between two best friends and the reason to celebrate and recognize our dearest friends on Sunday, August 3rd—International Friendship Day:

“The story could be the story of any friendship and this is the powerful message of the book. No matter what kind of life you have and whether you’ll find “the one,” go to college, have a career or raise children, if you have a Bonny-Lori kind of friendship in your life, you can conquer anything, from illness, poverty or addiction to achieve happiness and fulfillment.” -Teodora Totorean, Readers’ Favorite

Linked Lives reminds us all of the beauty and joy of long-term friendships. I finished it with a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes.” – Kelly Marshall, Author of 6 White Roses

“Brookes’ memoir tells a beautiful life story, with all life’s challenges, tragedies, and triumphs, and I loved reading every single page.” – Faridah Nassozi, Readers’ Favorite

“Well written with a heart. Get the tissues ready.” – Lane Elliott, CEO – WeTubeU.com

Linked Lives shines as a bright light into the recesses of the mind, and exposes wisdom and discernment as each woman does her best with what she has. Interesting, yet somewhat poignant, I recommend it.” – Patricia Day, Readers’ Favorite

Friends make the world go round

I just got a call from someone I haven’t spoken with in years. He found me by googling my name and we had a nice chat and it was the highlight of my day.

 

His call make me realize how easy it is to reconnect with long, lost friends these days. Yet, why don’t people do it more often? Take 5 or 10 minutes out of their hectic lives to just say hi? I know we are all busy, but in the end, it’s the people in our lives that make our life worth living. Ask anyone who is dying and they’ll say that’s their biggest regret – not staying in touch with friends.

So live life to the fullest! If someone has been on your mind lately, google them. Call them. You’ll both feel so much better and have a new memory!
