Overview

The Thread by Victoria Hislop

“A brilliant page turner…rich with drama and historical detail.”
Glamour (UK)

A beautiful and epic novel that spans nearly a hundred years, The Thread is a magnificent story of a friendship and a love that endures through the catastrophes and upheavals of the twentieth century—both natural and man-made—in the turbulent city of Thessaloniki, Greece. Victoria Hislop, internationally bestselling author of The Island and The Return, has written a wonderfully evocative and enthralling saga enriched by deep emotion and sweeping historical events, from fire to civil war to Nazi brutality and economic collapse. The Thread is historical fiction at its finest, colorful and captivating with truly unforgettable characters—a novel that brilliantly captures the energy and life of this singular Greek city.

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.
