Driven apart by their past, can the bonds of sisterhood survive what lies ahead? From the dramatic tradition of such classics as Little Women and A Thousand Acres comes Tracie Peterson's new contemporary novel, A Slender Thread. Well-known for her Westward Chronicles series as well as her historical series with Judith Pella, Peterson now uses her agile storytelling skills to tackle a family saga about the bonds of sisterhood, which you will not want to miss. United for the first time in years, five sisters return to their childhood in order to bid farewell to a mother they never knew, lost to the world that had made her a star. Knowing her only in her films, the sisters feel neither an emotional connection with her tragic death nor with each other. Only their deep love for their godly grandmother, Mattie, pulls them together. In the wake of the funeral, the Mitchell sisters discover the impact of their absent mother on the choices they've made throughout their lives. A heartrending betrayal and a second tragedy threaten them further. Haunted by the past, unsure of the future, the sisters have only the example of Mattie and God's grace reaching through her lives to make them a family.
A dramatic family saga about five estranged sisters reunited after the death of a mother they barely knew. Each is linked by their love for the grandmother who raised them, but will that bond be strong enough?
