The above is the link to the book.   You will be able to see the first 15 pages and, should you wish to do so, you will be able to purchase the book.   The page will show the prices.. My advice to any member buying the book would be to go for the hard cover image wrap.   it costs £2 more but is well worth the difference.

That is the one I've ordered for Sophie.

I've put a small profit on the price of each book to help defray my expenses.   Any profit after that will go to Sophie.

Well done Bob. This young lady has and is having the worst possible life it seems. One way or the other I hope her suffering will be over, sooner rather than later. She's suffered enough IMO. If your efforts and those of the contributors make a difference and bring a smile to her face then it's all been worthwhile. My thoughts are with her family who share her suffering.

Thank goodness I published the book this morning. My laptop just packed up. I'm working off my phone now and it's a right pain

Thanks Sheila.   The book has been dispatched to me and, as soon as I have made sure it's OK, it'll be going straight to Sophie.

Hi Bob just to let you know,I have just ordered my book.

You'll love it David!   

I've looked at mine that often and shown it to so many people.  Everyone who has seen it has been very impressed by the photos, the layout and the quality of the book itself.              :)

Have to agree with Kathy, it really is a lovely book with such a lot of photos.   You will love it as well.

Everyone I have shown it to also thought it was a fabulous idea. Thanks again Bob for all your hard work producing this wonderful photo book  for a very special young lady.  Pam

Just have to confirm what Pam & Kathy have said.  In particular, my grandchildren loved it, especially as their cousin Harry has had a potentially life threatening condition and also is "in the autistic spectrum".  So they are aware how lucky they are to have good health.

Hope you don't mind... a link to Harry
