Book of Lost ThreadsBook - 2011
In the small town of Opportunity, four mismatched people discover the unexpected power of kindness. A perfect tale for fans of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.
Moss has run away from Melbourne to Opportunity on the trail of a man she knows only by name. Her arrival sets in motion events that disturb the long-held secrets of three of the town's inhabitants: Finn, a brilliant mathematician, who has become a recluse; Lily Pargetter, 83-year-old knitter of tea cozies; and Sandy, the town buffoon, who dreams of a Great Galah. It is only as Moss, Finn, Lily, and Sandy develop unlikely friendships that they find a way to lay their sorrows to rest and knit together the threads that will restore them to life. Tender, funny, and memorable, this is a story about love and loss, parents and children, hope, faith, and the value of simple kindness.
