Publisher's Summary

Best-selling, award-winning author Tracie Peterson infuses her compelling novels with practical faith and courage. In this story of one contemporary family, she deftly weaves together the lives of five very different young women as they face life's tragedies and triumphs. Abandoned by their mother while they were still small children, the Mitchell sisters have always felt the pain of rejection. Their search for love and a sense of worth drives them apart by the time they are adults. But when their mother, now a famous actress, suffers an untimely death, the five reunite for the funeral. There, they begin to salvage frayed relationships, held together only by a slender thread.
As new trials come their way, the women struggle to maintain the tenuous bonds of sisterhood and find a reason to go on. Narrator Ruth Ann Phimister will keep listeners captivated as each of the sisters experiences the healing power of love and acceptance.

Not Interesting or Engaging..

Couldn't finish this...the characters weren't interesting or engaging, a lot of self centered introspection going on. There wasn't much of a plot or anything to grab. I found it dry and very predictable.

Inspiring and superb read! Life changing!

Where does A Slender Thread rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's rated tops on my list! While it took me a couple of chapters to learn all the characters it was well worth the read!!! If there were ten******** I would give this book ten stars! I definitely will read/listen again.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Mattie is my favorite character being a grandmother and taking in her daughter's five small children raising them in a very good home with great values yet what happens to these five girls and how do they turn out!?! A must read!

Which scene was your favorite?

The piece quilt and it's meaning and what will happen to this special Mitchell quilt! There were many other scenes as well. There isn't a dull moment with this book!

If you could take any character from A Slender Thread out to dinner, who would it be and why?

All of them! Everyone had their own problems and value; taking them one at a time would be fruitful!

Any additional comments?

This is a must read book! There is sadness, joy, complications in relationships but what Mattie achieves through her beliefs along with Harry makes for a stronger belief. I found the entire story with hope and inspiration leaving me changed. Absolutely amazing story!!!!The scenery on the farm is appealing to ones heart. The title "A Slender Thread" is so much more than a title!! I enjoyed this magnificent audio!!!

For God lovers only

Struggled to finished. written in a 'textbook' format. with each character- exclaiming and countering at each other. Didn't feel really but patched together. fabricated to preach about god and loving him. sexist old fashioned unrealistic.
