Publisher's Summary

Many believe that those who are destined to be together are connected by an invisible red thread. If that is so, the fates of Chai and Josi are weaved together and tied with a knot that cannot be broken.
Chai has been the self-appointed protector of her best friend, Josi, since their toddler days. Their lives are as far from extravagant as can be imagined - but they don’t need material things to be content. Their carefree childhood comes to a screeching halt when they are snatched together and sold as house help, and possible future brides, to a family far away.
This novel chronicles the girls’ struggle to adjust to their harsh new realities once the comforts and security of their old lives are stripped away. While Josi and others around them in the same situation have reluctantly accepted their new roles, Chai’s warrior spirit cannot be broken. She remains strong and refuses to give up hope of finding a way home.
Due to the infamous gender imbalance in China, thousands of females are trafficked every year to be sold as brides in remote villages and cities. Because of the lack of family resources, and the minimal efforts of the government to break up these criminal rings, many of the girls are never heard from again. Follow this story to find out what happens when despite one father’s lack of allies or money, he refuses to allow anyone to disrupt his quest to find his daughter.

A Thread Unbroken

This was a very good read. The narrator did a good job and gave the novel an easy pace which could be traversed by all ages. There is one grisly scene however which I don't recommend for children. It is very well written and gave no room for a vulgar or graphic
mindset, nevertheless the scene itself would need to be screened by a parent who knows what their child can handle. It wasn't until near the end that I realized that this book was set in a totally different culture. The problems encountered would be difficult in any setting but knowing the generational lifestyles and cultural expectations really put a different light on what the characters were going through. Also I am a Christian and I don't believe in a one size fits all religion so I lean away from the validity of Witch Doctors no matter how benign.

Bad narrator sounds like robot

Bad narrator sounds like reading without any character or inflection. Almost like poor Computer voice
