Description

An Invisible Thread tells of the life-long friendship between a busy sales executive and a disadvantaged young boy, and how both of their lives were changed by what began as one small gesture of kindness.

When Laura Schroff brushed by a young panhandler on a New York City corner one rainy afternoon, something made her stop and turn back. She took the boy to lunch at the McDonald’s across the street that day. And she continued to go back, again and again for the next four years until both their lives had changed dramatically. Nearly thirty years later, that young boy, Maurice, is married and has his own family. Now he works to change the lives of disadvantaged kids, just like the boy he used to be.
     An Invisible Thread is the true story of the bond between a harried sales executive and an eleven-year-old boy who seemed destined for a life of poverty. It is the heartwarming story of a friendship that has spanned three decades and brought meaning to an over-scheduled professional and hope to a hungry and desperate boy living on the streets.

    I could not stop turning the pages,.,my tears flowed through each page. From my own life I know the power and beauty of touching lives..I know pain and loss and Laura Shroff said it all exactly the way it is. What an amazing woman,,the greatest gift in life is touching someone's life..give them hope and love and she did that for Maurice who was so hungry and needy and most of all accepting and so anxious to better his life. It has been a very long time since I read such a wonderful book..each word hugged my soul. Arlene Ben-Zur

    One of the best books on surviving really difficult childhoods I've read. The message our society should be getting is that children are deeply wounded and traumatized by alcohol and drug fueled adults who should be protecting them. This book would be an excellent tool for teachers and counsellors in the fight against alcohol and drug abuse from a child's perspective. Rarely do we see this carnage through a child's eyes. Marjch
