The Red Thread: A Novel

By Ann Hood

ISBN: 0393070204

 

“In China there is a belief that people who are destined to be together are connected by an invisible red thread. Who is at the end of your red thread?”

Ann Hood, the best-selling author of The Knitting Circle, returns with THE RED THREAD [W. W. Norton & Company; May 3, 2010; $23.95 hardcover], the story of a mother’s powerful journey from loss to love.

After losing her infant daughter in a freak accident, Maya Lange opens The Red Thread, an adoption agency that specializes in placing baby girls from China with American families. Maya finds some comfort in her work, until a group of six couples share their personal stories of their desire for a child. Their painful and courageous journey toward adoption forces her to confront the lost daughter of her past. Brilliantly braiding together the stories of Chinese birth mothers who give up their daughters, Ann Hood writes a moving and beautifully told novel of fate and the red thread that binds these characters’ lives. Heartrending and wise, THE RED THREAD is a stirring portrait of unforgettable love and yearning for a baby.

Ann Hood is the author of ten books, including Comfort and The Knitting Circle. Her work has appeared in the New York Times, Paris Review, Tin House, O, The Oprah Magazine, and elsewhere. She lives in Providence, Rhode Island. Please contact the publicist if you’d like to learn more. Her email address is This email address is being protected from spambots.
