Most biographies and memoirs are described as 'inspiring' and 'uplifting'. This one really is! Free from the self-pity that pervades many true-life stories, this is a fascinating read. Libby Southwell finds her perfect partner and they decide to make a home together but disaster strikes when he is killed in a mountaineering accident. Grieving, Libby gets on with her life but tragedy strikes again. She travels across the world in a bid to confront her demons and ends up adopting Sri Lanka as her surrogate home. Libby is there when the Tsunami strikes and starts campaigning to raise funds to rebuild the island. Not only is this a colourful travelogue but it also a study in grieving and the strength of the human spirit. Proceeds from the book go towards the charity AdoptSriLanka.

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright

Synopsis

Monsoon Rains and Icicle Drops by Libby Southwell with Josephine Brouard

From a Mongolian nomad's tent to a hedonistic party complete with igloo in a Nepalese jungle, Libby Southwell has been to some amazing places and seen incredible things. But these are experiences she would never have had if tragedy hadn’t struck her life. Libby was a young and successful advertising executive in Sydney when her beloved fiancé died in a mountaineering accident. In horrific circumstances, several other friends died soon after this happened, and Libby was plunged into a numbing grief so strong that it led her to run from everything she knew.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
