SILVER THREADS, GOLDEN NEEDLES is a warm magical romance that centers on two themes: everyone needs loves and hugs, and the impact of spousal abuse. The story line is cleverly conceived so that the reader can feel the pain and fear of the victims while also observing the uplifting romance between the lead characters. What keeps the plot from becoming maudlin is Grant, a compassionate person who goes the extra meter to take care of people he cherishes. Paula McKinley must have used a golden word processor to write this winner. Harriet Klausner
