The Thread that Binds by Alice Hayes ~ Book Tour ~ Review & Giveaway!

Book Description:

Sherice is a new mother, a sonographer, quilter, and wife; an overworked young woman whose elderly mother is slipping away from her.

Sylvie is a newlywed and recent immigrant, unemployed and virtually penniless. Her husband’s paycheck can’t even cover prenatal care, let alone a baby, and her due date is only drawing nearer…

Joanne’s unconventional pregnancy turns her world upside down, redefining her career and relationships, and even bringing to the surface long-buried demons from her past.

Payton is seventeen, pregnant, and on the run. She flees to her uncle in Georgia with the hope of making a fresh start, but discovers making it on her own is harder than she could ever have imagined.

Gloria is trapped in an unhappy marriage; in love with someone else. Her life is falling apart. With a baby on the way, would it be selfish to flee?

Five women, once strangers, form bonds. Set in modern day Georgia, this is the story of friendship that blossoms in the land of country music, sweet tea, and secrets kept locked tight behind closed doors. Moving, funny, and at times heartbreaking, The Thread That Binds is a lesson in empathy, strength, and the beauty of love.

This book took a little bit to get into it. The book follows a bunch of ladies through pregnancy and they all end up being intertwined with each other. The author writes each chapter by a different character and jumps back and forth between them, the chapters are very small. This is a story on the bonding of friendships, empathy, love and hardships in life. All these ladies are struggling with their lives in one way or another and form bonds together that help them through the rough times. This is a great story once it gets rolling and you will fall in love with each of the characters as they all have their story to tell. It is easy to feel like you are part of the story as any of the ladies lives can totally relate to everyday events that you or someone you know may have faced. I did find that this novel has some errors in the editing but other than that I really enjoyed this heartfelt tale.

I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars.
