About the book:
A Silken Thread is centered in Hattersville, Ohio—a community of well-heeled and accomplished African-Americans, settled by freed slaves before the Civil War—A SILKEN THREAD inhabits a world where a social and economic caste system dictate—and often destroy—the happiness of those caught in its web of snobbery.
Erica Sanders has found the man of her dreams. A rising lawyer, Brian Lawson is smart and gorgeous—and the only man who has ever made Erica lose all reason with just a glance. The wedding is just a few weeks away, and the only person who objects to the match is Erica’s imperious, social-climbing mother, Karen. She would prefer that her daughter marry Griffin Hayes, scion of another wealthy Hattersville family—despite the fact that he and Erica, friends since birth, have never felt even a tinge of romance between them. Determined to end the union, Karen hires a private investigator to dig up any dirt she can about Brian—a decision that will have a devastating effect on many people’s lives.
Griffin, meanwhile, has set his sights on his own ideal woman: Erica’s best friend, April North. Born on the wrong side of the tracks in Hattersville, April is now an internationally recognized model, who still clings to family ties in her exclusive hometown. A third romance brews between Erica’s father, Wilson, and Brian’s mother, Rita. Fighting a palpable attraction from the moment they meet at their children’s engagement party, Wilson and Rita succumb to their passion when fate throws them together. Wilson, trapped in a loveless marriage, and Rita, a widow who long ago gave up on love, try to resist this forbidden romance, but discover things about their needs that cannot be denied.
Even as Karen’s efforts to thwart Erica and Brian’s happiness begin to play out according to her plan, secrets from the past surface that threaten the perfect little cocoon that she has constructed from silken threads—at once strong and vulnerable. In the end, only the power of love can prevail. A SILKEN THREAD is a powerful, electrically-charged evocation of romance and passion—vintage writing from one of the most beloved women working in romance fiction today.
