The Invisible Thread is a memoir of personal discovery, which will surprise the reader as much as it often surprises the narrator as she unearths events of her early life with a voice of cathartic awareness. The story begins with a young child who is ripped away from a loving home by her biological mother and a mentally ill aunt. As she is driven away, she watches her peaceful life vanish into the distance. Told that her father is dead, they live a life on the lamb, moving ten times in ten years over 4,000 miles. Ensnared in the twists and turns of a disturbing life, she finds herself pitted in a life-and-death struggle, choreographing an impending disaster whose dramatic outcome unwittingly takes her to Ireland and the "Invisible Thread" of her roots. And this is where the story begins, as the protagonist traverses continents and oceans with a relentless determination that will ultimately reveal the shocking truth.
