It’s something I call an invisible thread. It is, as the old Chinese proverb tells us, a thing that connects two people who are destined to meet, regardless of time and place and circumstance. Some legends call it the red string of fate, others the thread of destiny.
When I was in Target a few weeks ago I was instantly drawn to this book because of the cover of the Manhattan skyline, but after reading the back I knew I had to get it. An Invisible Thread by Laura Schroff will not only make you bawl like a little kid, but it will remind you what life is all about; this is the story about how an advertising sales executive and an 11 year old panhandler change each other’s lives. If you’ve ever read Same Kind of Different As Me, it’s along those lines, but in my opinion better. Check out this heartwarming interview with Laura and Maurice.
