Summary

Review Excerpts

"[A] feel-good story about the far-reaching benefits of kindness." ---Publishers Weekly

"For [listeners] seeking an uplifting reminder that small gestures matter." ---Kirkus

"Complex and unswervingly honest . . . inspirational. This is a book capable of restoring our faith in each other and in the very idea that maybe everything is going to be okay after all." ---Catherine Ryan Hyde, author of Pay It Forward

Summary

When Laura Schroff brushed by a young panhandler on a New York City corner one rainy afternoon, something made her stop and turn back. She took the boy to lunch at the McDonald's across the street that day. And she continued to go back, again and again for the next four years until both of their lives had changed dramatically. Nearly thirty years later, that young boy Maurice has gotten married and has his own children. Now he works to change the lives of disadvantaged kids, just like the boy he used to be.

An Invisible Thread is the true story of the bond between a harried sales executive and an eleven-year-old boy who seemed destined for a life of poverty. It is the heartwarming story of a friendship that has spanned three decades and brought meaning to an over-scheduled professional and hope to a hungry and desperate boy living on the streets.
