Reading Linked Lives reminded me of my own dear friend Charlene who died way too soon. Like Bonny and Lori, Charlene and I had a friendship that lasted many years, through husbands, pregnancies, children, job changes, and tragedies. Bonny's book brought it all back to me, and I must admit, I grieved again for the friendship that enriched my life. Bonny Brooks wrote this book to honor her friend Lori and in doing so has reminded us all of the beauty and joy of long-term friendships. I enthusiastically give this book five stars. I finished it with a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes.
