In response to her mother's call Stella has returned to the world she once knew, to help bring her family back together. 


Held together by the fragile invisible thread that binds each family together, Catherine, David and Charlie must navigate life without Stella.


But what happens when that thread is stretched to its limit? Will it eventually snap? And if so, how will they find their way back to each other? 


From her slumber under the earth, Stella responds to her mother’s call. Convinced she must help unravel the knots in her family’s relationship, she sets out to try and bring her family back together.


Sophy Layzell’s compelling new novel is about hope and love that crosses and transcends all worldly boundaries. 

Beautifully drawn and moving, Invisible Thread is about the certainty that even after the blackest of nights there will be a new day.
