SCOTTSDALE, Arizona, April, 2005 – Long time Arizona resident and new Scottsdale author, Patricia L. Brooks will debut her first book entitled “Gifts of Sisterhood – a journey on to your own” with a book signing, reading and discussion at B. Dalton Booksellers at Sierra Vista Mall on Saturday, April 30th from 11:00-4:00 p.m.
Come join her as she makes this insightful perspective come to life for you! Patricia’s book is an inspirational portrait of a relationship of two sisters who were friends, confidants and soul mates. The book reflects on the gifts of Faith, Courage,
Friendship, Love, Happiness, Acceptance – just to name a few, as well as insight into a philosophy of life worth emulating by inspiring you to write about your gifts.
Patricia takes you from northern Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, where they grew up near Mackinac Island, to their roots in County Tipperary, Ireland. The journey is fresh and uplifting, moving and generous in its account of this sister’s perspective of a life worth remembering, and of the words her sister lived by.
