Description-
  • In China there is a belief that people who are destined to be together are connected by an invisible red thread. After losing her infant daughter in a freak accident, Maya Lange opens The Red Thread, an adoption agency that specializes in placing baby girls from China with American families. Maya finds some comfort in her work, until a group of six couples share their personal stories of desire for a child. Their painful and courageous journey toward adoption forces Maya to confront the lost daughter of her past.

    Brilliantly braiding together the stories of Chinese birth mothers who give up their daughters, Ann Hood writes a moving and beautifully told novel of the red thread of fate that binds these characters' lives. Heartrending and wise, The Red Thread is a stirring portrait of unforgettable love and yearning for a baby.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Maya Lange, director of the Red Thread Adoption Agency, vets potential adoptive parents. She believes that an invisible thread connects the souls of abandoned Chinese babies with loving families. Hillary Huber genuinely portrays the array of characters in this three-part story: the Chinese families forced to cast aside baby girls, the joy and fear of the American adoptive parents, and Maya's grief over the accidental death of her own child. Huber excels in her narration of the Chinese women's stories. She embodies the pain of the mothers, particularly one who sews a pattern on her baby's blanket as a clue to her birth village. Like Hood's other novel, THE KNITTING CIRCLE, this is a compelling story of human ingenuity. K.P. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
  • Publishers Weekly "[An] engaging new tearjerker….Hood's sensitive depiction of her characters' hopes and fears makes for a moving story of dedication, forgiveness, and love."
