The Pigeon House By Larry Kelly & James Plaskitt

With the end of his life approaching, an old man has only one regret. He has not been able to tell the full story of his childhood. The memories were painful. They had been buried for decades. But he... More > could not reach the end of his life without the truth being told. ‘The Pigeon House’ is a moving story of a boy’s triumph against the odds.

The painful truth of what happened in the Pigeon House, and how one boy overcame it, brings compelling reaffirmation of the triumph of the human will.< Less

I’ve seen that had problems, how many times was in the hospital, she spent much time there, her mom. Everyone here is praying that Susan survived. Now maybe you can not see it, but cystic fibrosis is a fatal disease before the Games and said that I was going to London after the medal for her.”< Less
Cars, Paul and Me By Peter Bullock
eBook (PDF): $6.23
(5 Ratings)
Pete Bullock has been the recipient of some very unfortunate luck with his cars. Many people have experienced chipped windscreens and flat tyres and will sympathise with him. However, how many people... More > can claim to have had the bonnet stolen from their car, have a lorry push them out of their lane on the motorway and have to be cut out of their car through no fault of their own? In this book Pete recollects and acknowledges the humorous side of his car nightmares, as did his best friend Paul, who he met at the age of three. Pete reminisces at his and Paul’s life growing up together and of the car stories that always made Paul laugh. The problems with the cars were put into context however when Paul, a seemingly fit and healthy 27 year old, passed away only 15 days after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2010. The proceeds that Pete gets from the book sales will go to Pancreatic Cancer UK, an organisation dedicated to research and helping those diagnosed with this disease.< Less
