A Silken Thread is a novel composed of intricately woven sub-plot surrounding three relationships that are affected by the machinations of one heartless, callous woman.
Karen Sanders is hell-bent on stopping her daughter, Erica, from marrying a man she considers beneath them. Despite Erica’s love for Brian, Karen goes to desperate lengths to push her into the arms of Griffin, who is of the blue blood status that Karen approves of. Although we later learn what shaped her into the person she is, it doesn't diminish the repercussions of her actions for those involved. This is a masterfully told story of love, trust, betrayal, and faith. It explores the man/woman relationships of these characters, but also goes into the parent/child relationship as well as the relationship between friends. This book reinforces the belief that “what’s meant to be, will be.”
The author draws the reader in and allows them to feel the pain of the characters as they are subjected to the things that rip their relationships apart. The unexpected twists and revelations will keep you turning the page to see what happens next.
I give this book a rating of five stars out of five.
