A Slender Thread from the Author: Tracie Peterson. 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 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 Slender Thread from the Author: Katharine Davis. A gripping novel of two sisters who must reimagine the future-before they're ready to let go of the past. As a girl, Margot Winkler knew her big sister Lacey would keep her safe. Decades later, Lacey's home is often Margot's refuge. Lacey's life has seemed close to perfect-a loving husband, twin daughters on the brink of womanhood, and a home filled with her beautiful hand-woven textiles. But everything changes when Lacey reveals some devastating news. A rare disease is slowly stealing her ability to use language. Now Margot must imagine the future and find the courage to help her sister discover a new voice, keenly aware of the slender threads that bind them to this life, and to each other.

A Slender Thread from the Author: Stephen Venables. Together with Chris Bonington and other distinguished British climbers, Stephen Venables was high on the unclimbed and sacred mountain of Panch Chuli when, at 1am on a dark Himalayan night, his abseil failed and he fell catastrophically, somersaulting from rock to rock and landing, seriously-wounded, at the end of a rope suspended above a 50-degree icefield. This is the story of his arduous and almost miraculous survival, and of the brilliant, committed teamwork which brought him to safety.
