An Invisible Thread tells of the life-long friendship between a busy sales executive and a disadvantaged young boy, and how both of their lives were changed by what began as one small gesture of kindness.

When Laura Schroff brushed by a young panhandler on a New York City corner one rainy afternoon, something made her stop and turn back. She took the boy to lunch at the McDonald’s across the street that day. And she continued to go back, again and again for the next four years until both their lives had changed dramatically. Nearly thirty years later, that young boy, Maurice, is married and has his own family. Now he works to change the lives of disadvantaged kids, just like the boy he used to be.
     An Invisible Thread is the true story of the bond between a harried sales executive and an eleven-year-old boy who seemed destined for a life of poverty. It is the heartwarming story of a friendship that has spanned three decades and brought meaning to an over-scheduled professional and hope to a hungry and desperate boy living on the streets.

    One of the most moving stories I have ever read. I could not put this book down. Thank God for those people who don’t just keep walking past and who care enough to make a difference in the lives of others.

    This was a wonderful book. I felt I was with the writer along with her on story of her life day by day. I do believe that we are destined by the Lord or The Greater Spirit to meet certain person in our Life Time! It has happened to Me in My Life... An invisible thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place and circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle. But it will never break. Ancient Chinese Proverb Phyllis Anne Trulock Thank You, Laura Schroff & Maurice

    One of the best books I have read. An incredible story about being humanistic.....If we just take the time to be compassionate with others, we can make a huge difference in other people's lives.
  • Amazing book

    Touching history .. An example to be followed. This book taught me a lot. How to be strong and not give up while helping somebody. I do volunteer work In Brazil and it is not always easy to keep it in a long term basis, personal plans always come in the way and sometimes we feel discouraged, but reading Laurie history made me really confident.

    What a heart touching story this turned out to be. God doesn't always give you what you want but he always gives you what you need and these two people needed each other. Loved the pictures at the end also

    This book was fabulous. I wasn't expecting a great deal because nonfiction books that have a great story are hard to find. This book was an exception beyond belief. Just a few pages in and I was hooked, it is not only a moving story but a beautiful love story between great friends. Thank you so very much.
