Where is Mary Poppins today when you really need her?

The Unraveling Thread is a medical mystery, a tale of a family in crisis. What is the divorced Harriet McWhinnie to do? Despite a new promotion at work, everything is falling apart at home. Her octogenarian mother is slipping onto dementia. Her fifteen year old twin girls, Luna and Sola, constantly fight with each other. With multiple physical problems, Sola erupts into psychotic accusations of rape and murder. Ashamed of her sister, the resentful Luna plots to flee to her father. Five year old Justin dreams of parental reunion, and Scalawag, the hyperactive dog, is driving everyone crazy. Worst of all, the new Agency caretaker has fled the scene. Desperate, Harriet hires the stern and outspoken Agatha Stands, a middle-aged Native American with no references, no address, and a concealed past. Harriet’s exhusband, a powerful politician, soon declares war on this mysterious woman who enchants the children, relies on the paranormal, and encourages Harriet not only to date other but to resist her exhusband’s manipulations. Written with compassion, humor, and insight, Cogan once again weaves a tale of characters and experiences you won’t soon forget.

Editorial Reviews

Back cover of book
As a reader I loved the clever plot; as a writer I reveled in the music of the words (walk in soft moccasins. I know where I put feet.); as a Christian, I could identify with each character's battle for faith--in themselves and in something beyond themselves. Best of all, Priscilla Cogan wraps the story around life's most important truth: it's all about love.
