Selected by Indie Booksellers for the June 2009 Indie Notables
“A Thread of Truth is a captivating story of an abused wife who is caught in a cycle of constant flight from her abuser. This novel has wonderful characters, a fast-moving plot, and a strong message of friendship and community. A really good read, especially for book groups.”
-- Linda Vinstra, Great Northern Books and Hobbies, Oscoda, MI


Description
In her 20s, Ivy Peterman escaped an abusive marriage with little more than her kids, and the clothes on her back. Quaint New Bern, Connecticut seemed an ideal place to make a fresh start. With a part-time job at the Cobbled Court Quilt Shop, and budding friendships, Ivy feels hopeful. But when a popular television show is taped at the quilt shop, Ivy's unwitting appearance alerts her ex to her whereabouts. Suddenly, Ivy is facing the fight of her life -- but this time, she has a sisterhood behind her -- folks as complex, strong and lasting as the quilts they stitch.
