Amazing but painful

What did you like best about An Invisible Thread? What did you like least?

I found the book interesting, but painful. Both main characters had very difficult, dangerous and abusive childhoods, albeit, very different problems. Something in common, however, was that both had a parent with severe substance abuse problems. It is amazing that they both survived, but more amazing is that they both emerged as productive, successful adults. But, this was not the kind of story that I wanted to read. I wanted a feel good story of rescue and redemption. Instead, I got a story of survival. I loved "Blind Side" and was hoping for a story on that level. Instead, this is a story of two very damaged, destructive families and two survivors who come together to help each other. Yes, it has a happy ending, but getting through the journey was painful.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

It is what it is. Changing the story would have made it fiction.

What about Pam Ward’s performance did you like?

Well read with emotion. Great performance.

Was An Invisible Thread worth the listening time?

Maybe. If you want a story of survival, this is the story for you. I can certainly see this story giving someone hope and power. If you are feeling rather "beat up" and you need a happy story, pass over this one.

An invisible thread will tug at your heart strings

I love true stories and this is a wonderful one. Two people from different backgrounds, social standings and ages are brought together under unusual circumstances that ended up changing each others lives forever in ways they could never have foreseen... Not your typical love story, but a story of love.. Absolutely worth the listen/read.. The very last words of the story brought tears to my eyes and a smile to my heart..
