The Golden Thread




Life seems beautiful and then the unexpected happens . . . Every teenager feels the need for a get-away place, even if they’re the only girl in the family and have their own room. Miranda Scott has her favorite willow tree at the back of the vacant lot next door. She anticipates her thirteenth year—her first as a teenager—will be the beginning of grown-up plans with her best friend, Samantha Middleton. Set in 1969 in a small Nebraska farming community, this coming-of-age story deals with unexpected illness, prejudice against her family and others, and the impact of the Viet Nam conflict, just as Miranda has awakened to the beauty in life around her.
