When Laura Schroff brushed by a young panhandler on a New York City corner one rainy afternoon, something made her stop and turn back. She took the boy to lunch at the McDonald’s across the street that day, and she continued to go back, again and again, for the next four years until both of their lives had changed dramatically. Nearly thirty years later, that young boy Maurice has gotten married and has his own children. Now he works to change the lives of disadvantaged kids, just like the boy he used to be.

An Invisible Thread is the true story of the bond between a harried sales executive and an eleven-year-old boy who seemed destined for a life of poverty. It is the heartwarming story of a friendship that has spanned three decades and brought meaning to an over-scheduled professional and hope to a hungry and desperate boy living on the streets.

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by Jennie | 12/6/2013

    " The author may have done one act of kindness so fortunate for this young man - but I can tell you the live person is not a kind person at all. I witnessed her orchestrate to get someone fired so she could take a demotion to save her own hide. Causing someone to be unemployed in a down economy is far from giving. I hate to see her profit when she caused harm to many others. "
