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Crosby's work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript.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 love the writing of Bette Lee Crosby – Silver Threads

Rosemary on Goodreads says:
Jennifer Green, a young mother and wife, was shot and killed in a botched robbery. It happened when she stopped by the pharmacy. A simple action with tragic consequences. As her husband and little girl try and pick up the shattered pieces of their life and move forward, they find guilt and grief are their constant companion. How do you go on when your strength is gone? Bette Lee Crosby shows us how Drew Bishop and Brooke struggle to cope. It broke my heart to see how life can change in a minute. Drew tries to be both mother and father while working. He’s exhausted physically and emotionally. Brooke is no longer a happy outgoing child. He can’t be out of her sight. She’s withdrawn and has nightmares. Will they ever find love and happiness in the future? When they unexpectedly arrive at Memory House and meet Annie, they find the comfort that they need to start their journey to a new life. I love coming to this place where love and support help those in need. The idea that safety and comfort can be found here makes me feel good. I love the writing of Bette Lee Crosby. Her stories always touch my heart. Silver Threads is no exception.
