St. Paul, Minnesota, 1946: As a child, Shannon listened to her father’s stories of a motherless princess who ventured far from her kingdom, connected to home by only the magic of a fine, silver thread. As a young woman, introspective and quirky, Shannon knows she is neither a princess nor an adventuress - that would more likely be her sister, Eliza. But when Shannon barely survives a year in quarantine for a deadly disease, losing any hope of motherhood herself, and when Eliza runs away after a brutal attack, the fairy tale seems all too real. On her quest to bring Eliza home, Shannon discovers a secret child, the love of a good man, and the true meaning of family remade. Despite her new-found happiness, Shannon questions whether the bond between sisters is strong enough to save Eliza.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“There are so many issues in this beautifully written book…This is one of those rare novels that forces you to sit for a few minutes after you’ve finished reading it until you are ready to return to the real world.” Twin Cities Pioneer Press
A Thread So Fine is a compelling tale of a family undone and remade. Welch, the author, perfectly captures the Midwest upper class of the mid-twentieth century and (slyly) foreshadows the feminist issues that are at the forefront today.” Christy McDanold, owner, Secret Garden Books, Seattle, WA
“In A Thread So Fine, Susan Welch has written a beautiful story of sisters, history and love.” Tara Conklin, New York Times bestselling author
“Readers who undertake the journey of this evolving relationship between two sisters from childhood to adulthood will find that A Thread So Fine lassos the heart with stories of close connections tested by life’s progression. Readers of women’s fiction…will relish this engrossing saga of change and survival.” Midwest Book Review
“[A] genuine story of family loyalty, misfortune, and potential. Welch steadily traces the two young women’s desire to forge their own lives, often hindered by shame, silence, guilt, and the stifling confines of societal expectations. Readers will be inspired by Shannon and Eliza’s persistence and heart.” Publishers Weekly
“In skillful, straightforward prose, Welch sets her character-driven narrative against the backdrop of postwar societal changes…Addictive…An engaging and poignant historical novel.” Kirkus Reviews
