An Invisible Thread

An Invisible Thread: The True Story of an 11-Year-Old Panhandler, a Busy Sales Executive, and an Unlikely Meeting with Destiny by Laura Schroff and Alex Tresniowski.

This tale of an unexpected friendship unfolds like an intimate journal, revealing the deep and conflicting thoughts and feelings of a single white career woman named Laura Schroff  in New York City who forms a friendship with a panhandling young boy named Maurice.

Though the boy is desperately lonely and emotionally outcast from society, the reader discovers the two have more in common than appearances would show. This story stays with the reader because of its underlying, subtle but profound message about an invisible thread.
