On the day Jennifer Green was born a pile of stones was placed alongside her scale of life. A few were the dark gray of sorrow, but most were a pale blush color. The largest stone was the rose hue of a sunrise. That one would be placed on the scale the day she married Drew Bishop. Even more brilliant but a wee bit smaller was the pink stone glistening with specs of silver. That one would bring Jennifer a baby girl named Brooke. The Keeper of the Scale smiled. Seeing such happiness laid out before him was pleasing to his eye.

Since the beginning of time, he and he alone has been challenged with the task of keeping each person’s scale in balance. A bit of happiness and then a small stone of sorrow, until the lives he has in his charge are measured evenly.

You might think such power is universal, but it is not. There are silver threads that crisscross the landscape of scales and connect strangers to one another. Not even the Keeper of the Scale can control the events traveling through those threads; the only thing he can do is try to equalize the balance once it has been thrown off. There is nothing more he can do for Jennifer; now he must find the thread that leads to Drew if he is to have the love he deserves.

About the Author
Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby brings the wit and wisdom of her Southern Mama to works of fiction--the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away.

Born in Detroit and raised in a plethora of states scattered across the South and Northeast, Crosby originally studied art and began her career as a packaging designer. When asked to write a few lines of copy for the back of a pantyhose package, she discovered a love for words that was irrepressible. After years of writing for business, she turned to works of fiction and never looked back. "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write."

Crosby's work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. Since that, she has gone on to win several more awards, including another NLAPW award, Royal Palm Literary Awards, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal and Reviewer's Choice Award and Reader's View Southeast Fiction Literary Award.

Her published works to date are: Jubilee's Journey (2013), What Matters Most (2013), The Twelfth Child (2012), Cupid's Christmas (2012), Cracks in the Sidewalk (2011), Spare Change (2011), and Life in the Land of IS (2012). Life in the Land of IS is a memoir written for Lani Deauville, a woman the Guinness Book of Records lists as the world's longest living quadriplegic.

I can’t wait to see what Bette does next – Silver Threads

Laurie on Goodreads says:
Bette Lee Crosby does a phenomenal job of bringing the positives needed in this world to a book on paper.
This is the latest book in her “Memory House” series.
Jennifer is a wonderful Mom, wife and friend and her time on earth is cut short by a vicious attack. She leaves a daughter- Brooke who is 8 and a husband Drew who is busy with work and moving up the ladder of success for his family.
Brooke does not cope with her Mom’s death and Drew will do anything to try to make his daughter happy, even though he is miserable himself and desperately missing his wife.
“Everything Happens for a Reason” is the theme in this story.
Time marches on and after yet another threat, that has this family shaking, Drew decides to relocate to Virginia to help Brooke put the past behind her and begin to hopefully feel safe once more.

Where they go and how they end up where they are?
You will just have to see for yourself.
Once you finish this delightful story- I dare anyone to NOT believe that we are all connected and placed exactly where we should be on this earth.
I was so happy to see Ophelia make a brief appearance at the end of this book and that the Memory House continues to provide rest for the weary and many new Memories.
The writing is terrific and every emotion is felt as the story goes on.
I can’t wait to see what Bette Lee does next.
Read this book, Read the entire series.
You will not forget the message, I assure you.
