In the tradition of the New York Times best-seller The Blind Side, The Invisible Thread tells of the unlikely friendship between a busy executive and a disadvantage young boy, and how both of their lives changed forever
"An invisible thread will tug at your heart strings"
One day in 1986, Laura Schroff, a busy ad sales executive, passed a small boy panhandling on the street. She stopped and offered to take him to McDonald's for lunch. Twenty years later, at Laura's 50th birthday party, Maurice Mayzik gave a toast, thanking Laura for that small act of kindness, which ended up changing the course of his life. In that toast Maurice said that when Laura stopped on that busy street corner all those years ago, God had sent him an angel.
For most of her life, Crystal McVea was a skeptic whose history of abuse and bad choices made her feel beyond the reach of God - who questioned if God was even real. She had all but given up hope. Then came December 10, 2009...and the moment that changed everything. Crystal doesn't remember the trauma or losing consciousness; she just remembers waking up in heaven, next to God....
"worst book of this genre Ive listened to/read"
On December 10, 2009, Crystal McVea was being treated in a hospital for pancreatitis. Her heart stopped pumping for nine minutes before doctors managed to revive her. In those nine minutes, she went to heaven, stood with God, and was forever changed.
"didn't read book one"
As 870 children waited in fear, their elementary school rushed into lockdown mode. As the nation faced yet another Sandy Hook story of tragedy, one woman rewrote the ending.
Laura ist eine erfolgreiche Verkaufsleiterin, die an einem normalen Montag durch die Straßen von New York hetzt. Sie hat keine Zeit, achtet kaum auf ihre Mitmenschen - auch nicht auf den kleinen Jungen, der sie um Kleingeld anbettelt. Sie ist schon an der nächsten Straßenecke, als sie plötzlich stehen bleibt - und umkehrt. Sie kauft dem hungrigen Maurice etwas zu essen und erfährt von seinem Leben.
