“A brilliant page turner and destined to become a reading group staple, THE THREAD is rich with drama and historical detail.”
Cleveland Plain Dealer
“Hislop’s vivid storytelling makes a fascinating, turbulent place and time spring to life.”
Shelf Awareness
“Hislop writes in rich, vivid detail about the city by the sea, bringing its diverse population to life. . . . Sweeping in scope yet intimate in detail, THE THREAD is a love letter to Greece and a testament to the courage and adaptability of its people.”
Booklist
“Combining a keen eye for detail with her usual fluid writing style, Hislop presents an engrossing excursion to Thessaloniki, Greece’s second-largest metropolis. . . .

Hislop has writtten a historical fiction piece with an engaging story, heartfelt moments, and realistic characters that tug at your heartstrings. Though there were quotations that seemed out of place, it does not detract the reader from the overall story. I highly recommend this read. It did not disappoint.

Victoria Hislop is a masterful story teller. You can't help but get caught up in the lives of her characters. Her characters are so vivid they seem to come to alive off the page.

The Thread is one of those novels that you just can't forget. I had such a warm yet sad feeling after reading the final pages. Hislop has such a way with words. Stephanie Clanahan

Victoria Hisop is one of my all-time favorite historical fiction authors. This is the third book of hers that I've read, and I was equally enamored with, and invested in the outcome of her characters in this story, just as I was with the others. This novel is a fine place to start if you havent read any books by this author before. "The Island" was another great read and one that should also go onto your wishlist.
