The #1 New York Times Bestseller AN INVISIBLE THREAD By Laura Schroff and Alex Tresniowski PRAISE FOR THE #1 New York Times BESTSELLING MEMOIR AN INVISIBLE THREAD: “An Invisible Thread is like The Blind Side, but instead of football, it’s food. These are two people who were brought together by one simple meal, and it literally changed the course of both of their lives. This is a must-read . . . you can read it in a day because it’s impossible to put down. If you read it and find it as moving as I did, pay it forward: buy a copy and give it to a friend.” – Rachael Ray, host of The Rachael Ray Show “If you have a beating heart—or if you fear you’re suffering a hardening of the emotional arteries—you really ought to commit to this book at the earliest possible opportunity . . . read this book. And pass it on. And encourage the next reader to do the same.” – Jesse Kornbluth, Huffington Post From #1 New York Times bestselling authors Laura Schroff and Alex Tresniowski comes the young readers edition of an inspirational memoir about an unlikely friendship between a busy sales executive and a homeless eleven-year-old boy. One Monday afternoon, on a crowded New York City street corner, eleven-year old Maurice met Laura and asked for spare change because he was hungry. Something made Laura stop and offer to take Maurice to lunch. They met for dinner on the following Monday, and the Monday after that, and wound up getting together on m0re than 100 Mondays, forging an unlikely friendship that changed both their lives forever. Based on the true story of Laura Schroff and Maurice Mazyck, An Invisible Thread chronicles the bond between an eleven-year-old boy and a busy sales executive; a heartwarming journey of hope, kindness, adventure, and love—and the power of fate to help us find our way.
