Rosie's lost without her best friend. But on the eve of her departure to join Alex in Boston, Rosie gets news that will change her life forever - and keep her at home in Ireland. Their magical connection sees them through the ups and downs of each other's lives but neither of them knows whether their friendship can really survive the years and miles - as well as new relationships. And at the back of Rosie's mind is whether they were meant to be more than just good friends all along.

Destiny, Alex and Rosie discover, is a funny thing and fate isn't quite done with them yet!"

I love it I love it!!!!!!
This book is fantastic! It's a wonderful book about friendship and love. About 'best friends' and 'soul mates'. I fell in love with the characters of this book and I found it so hard to put down. I just wanted to read read read!!!
When the book finished, I felt sad because I enjoyed it so much and wanted to stay in their lives.
I liked the way this book was set out, the whole book was set in email and snail mail form,. so each page was a conversation one was having with another. It reminded me of the movie 'You've got Mail'.

I highly recommed this book to anyone who loves to read Chick Lits. I am even thinking some guys may like this book after all the two best friends are male and female, it is about their bond. It was so enjoyable.


The Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield.

Author: James Redfield.
ISBN: 0-553-40902-6
Publisher: Bantam Books
Genre: Fiction 'spiritual'
Pages: 283

"In the rain of Peru,
an ancient manuscript has been
discovered. Within its pages are 9 key insights
into life itself -- insights each human being is predicted to
grasp sequentially, one insight then another, as we move toward a completely spiritual culture on Earth

The Celestine Prophecy contains secrets that are currently changing our world. Drawing on the ancient wisdom found in a Peruvian manuscript, it tells you how to make connections between the events happening in your own life right now ...and lets you see what is going to happen to you in the years to come.

A book that has been passed from hand to hand, from friend to friend, since it first appeared in small bookshops across America, Celestine Prophecy is a work that has come to light at a time when the world deeply needs to read its words. The story it tells is a gripping one of adventure and discovery, but it is also a guidebook that has the power to crystalise your perceptions of why you are where you are in life ...and to direct your steps with a new energy and optimism as you head into tomorrow.

A book that comes along just once in a lifetime to change lives forever."

This is a book about how a man finds himself in another country, as he goes in search of some ancient mauscripts. These manuscripts are life changing but, certain people want them destroyed. The journey to discover them and keep them safe is all those who believe in it want.

This is a good book, and I found it enjoyable to read. I don't think for me it was thrilling but it was one of those books that made me think. This book helps you to look at yourself and the world around you, in a different way. Many have clamied the book itself is life changing and I can see how. It's a spiritual book and I think many who read it will take what resonated with them, and use it in their own lives.

I give this book 7/10

"The young and beautiful Tessa Quayle has been horribly murdered on the shores of Lake Turkana.

I don't usually go for this type of book, and yet and found myself enjoying it.

It's about how a man in Africa goes on the search of his wife's and her colleges murderers, he begins an investigation of his own to get down to the truth, as it is being covered up.
The book also goes into how Africa is exploited and the troubles out there.

I found it a great read, fast paced and easy to read.
Definitley one I would read again.
