An Invisible Thread: The True Story of an 11-Year-Old Panhandler, a Busy Sales Executive, and an Unlikely Meeting with Destiny by Laura Schroff
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It’s amazing how far a little compassion can go. That was my overall feeling about An Invisible Thread. Laura Schroff, a busy executive, could have just continued to ignore Maurice on the street, but she didn’t. She took notice and did what she could, which was a lot at times, to assist him. I admire how she was moved to help this child, even allowing him into her home, washing his clothes and feeding him. She took a personal interest in him, and for that she should be commended. Laura Schroff suffered through dark periods in her own childhood and I appreciated reading her backstory because it gave me a bit of insight into how her own experiences shaped her in adulthood. An Invisible Thread was a deeply moving story of how just one woman could change the course of someone’s damaged life, and I truly enjoyed it and recommend it.
