When advertising executive Laura Schroff was approached by 11-year-old panhandler Maurice, at first, she ignored him: "His words were part of the clatter, like a car horn or someone yelling for a cab. They were, you could say, just noise—the kind of nuisance New Yorkers learn to tune out." A moment later, when she came to, she returned and invited her new acquaintance to lunch at McDonald's, the beginning of a human connection that would change both their lives. An Invisible Thread picks up the progress of two very different people with strangely parallel stories of "complicated pasts and fragile dreams." Uplifting, without an ounce of pretension.
