Editorial Reviews


Bonny Brookes' Linked Lives is enjoyable to read, even though you might shed a tear or two along the way. But the two life stories will bring sheer joy as well to any reader. 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, and addiction to achieve happiness and fulfillment.
5 Stars - Teodora Totorean, Readers' Favorite
In her memoir, Linked Lives, Bonny Brookes talks about her life and the beautiful friendship she shared with her best friend, and how this friendship helped them survive many challenges. Bonny showed me that you do not need to be near someone to be there for them when they need you. Her memoir tells a beautiful life story, with all life's challenges, tragedies, and triumphs, and I loved reading every single page.
5 stars - Faridah Nassozi, Readers' Favorite
Linked Lives by Bonny Brookes is a comfortable read. Good friends are hard to find. True and trustworthy: these are traits that few exemplify. Bonny and Lori find them in each other. 
There are excellent life lessons exposed, showing how critically important it is to listen, love and care. Honesty and integrity show in the many examples of trials, disappointments, and joys. Ultimately, the story 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 would recommend it. 
4 stars - Patricia Day, Readers' Favorite

From the Author

When I looked down at my best friend in her coffin, I realized her cherished grandchildren probably would not remember her. That made me so sad, because she loved them so much. I mumbled "I should write her story so they not only remember her, but get to know the person I knew." The person standing next to me, a nun, heard me and told me I should. I left her funeral with that sole purpose, to share her story with those she loved.

Writing the first draft of this book, which took only a few days, I felt as if she was sitting next to me, helping me, guiding me, reminding me of experiences we'd shared that I had forgotten. It was nice to spend time with her again, if only in spirit.

The book was originally going to be entitled, "Lori's Dash", but after completing it, I realized it wasn't just her, but all the lives she'd touched, and how their lives changed as a result of the connection. We all have friends, and because of that, we are linked to each other, and those friendships affect the lives we lead. Everyone can relate to this powerful story, Linked Lives. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
