We are thrilled that author Ann Hood (“The Knitting Circle”) will be coming to Titcomb’s next week (Tuesday May 4th, 7:00pm) to talk about her newest novel “The Red Thread”. This video by Ann describes the book and let’s us all meet her young daughter! Hope you can come!
If you like to read the back of the book, here it is!
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 their desire for a child. Their painful and courageous journey toward adoption forces her 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 fate and the red thread that binds these characters’ lives. Heartrending and wise, “The Red Thread” is a stirring portrait of unforgettable love and yearning for a baby.
