Acclaimed Newbery medalist Katherine Paterson’s Bridge to Terabithia had always been a favourite read of mine growing up as a child, so when I saw her name linked to this one, I had to read it.

Brotherhood by Deepak Chopra
Hello all to this last post for June!! This post is a biography that caught my eye a few years ago, and being the generous person that I am, passed it onto my mother, who ended up recommended it to her friends before I had a chance to read it!!
