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.
I was mesmerized – Silver Threads
Cathy on Goodreads says:
Jennifer drops her daughter Brooke off at school then goes to the pharmacy to get something for her horrid migraine. Her husband Drew travels for his job and is not home often. Everything changes after that trip to the pharmacy.
Brooke and her dad Drew face many challenges after that day. His job changes and he starts working from home. The neighbors are helpful and Brooke has school friends that she is close to as well.
I loved how the author tied the story together telling about the lives of the criminals, red-haired twins Eddie and Tom. This can be read as a stand alone book but ties into the Memory House series. I was mesmerized wanting to know what would happen next. Great job Mrs. Crosby!
