Before twenty-something Moss turns up on Finn’s doorstep in search of her heritage, the only information she has is his name and that he is a brilliant mathematician. What she doesn’t expect to find is a man who gives her a sense of hope and understanding about her two mothers, two very different women who each wanted her to grow a certain way.
These people, each with their own ghost hanging over them, need to find a way to confront their problems and get on with their lives. Can four broken people use their united strengths to save the town of Opportunity while saving themselves.
Book of Lost Threads is a story of ordinary people. A story of family and a sense of where you belong. Sometimes funny, occasionally sad but always a wonderful journey of hope, forgiveness and courage.
