From the Inside Flap

Where does Your String Go?

Recommended and adopted by parenting blogs, bereavement support groups, hospice centers, foster care and social service agencies, military library services, church groups, and educators, The Invisible String offers a very simple approach to overcoming loneliness, separation, or loss with an imaginative twist that children easily understand and embrace, and delivers a particularly compelling message in today's uncertain times. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

From the Author

Hi everyone, This is Patrice Karst, the author of the The Invisible String. What began as a way of comforting my own son Elijah when he was sad that I was going to work and he was going to pre-school, became my book The Invisible String. Children of all ages (And yes! Adults too!) feel a great sense of peace and joy realizing that we are all connected to the ones that we love... (pets, friends, grandparents, cousins etc... and especially those that have passed on)...through the Invisible String. A string that can never be lost, cut , or torn. A string that can reach all the way to the moon or down to the ocean floor. A string that even anger, time, or bad feelings can never make go away. No-one is too young or too old to remember that we are never, really all alone. God Bless you all and never forget about The String. Bye for now, may your strings soar far and wide... and let's spread the word!!! Love, Patrice --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

Patrice Karst is the author of the bestselling, contemporary classic children's ( and adults'!) book The Invisible String, which has sold over 1,000,000 copies. It is the story of the String (made out of love) that connects us all.

In addition to being shared by all ages as a gift for many of life's milestone moments, it is also being used by schools, psychologists, hospices, grief groups, the military, hospitals, the prison system and multiple organizations worldwide for any kind of loss or separation issues, and gives children a tangible understanding of LOVE. A leading title for healing, comfort, bereavement and counseling of children and their families since its original publication in 2000, The Invisible String continues to soar because of its timeless message.

Available now is the paperback version of the book published by Little Brown Books for Young Readers (Hachette Book Group), featuring all-new illustrations by Joanne Lew-Vriethoff. In addition, Little Brown is releasing four more sequels in the Invisible String franchise: The Invisible Leash: A Story Celebrating Love After the Loss of a Pet ; The Invisible Web ; a therapeutic activity book co-written with Dana Wyss, Ph.D., The Invisible String Workbook: Creative Activities to Comfort, Calm and Connect and You are Never Alone: An Invisible String Lullabye.

Patrice and her books have been widely featured in print and broadcast media and she is a well-loved public speaker. Her work touches children and adults alike. Love and the needs of the heart are something Patrice understands well. She has made a literary career out of addressing in warm and humorous prose the issues that tickle or trouble our souls, both spiritually and practically. Patrice's books are the perfect fit for the time in which we live, offering comfort, support and wisdom in her down-to-earth way.

All of Patrice's books carry the universal theme of LOVE.

Born in London, England, she moved to the United States as a child, where she spent many a night pondering the meaning of life under the canopy of stars, and she has been on a fascinating creative and spiritual journey ever since. A "seeker" and spiritual student since childhood, her quest culminated in the writing of her first bestselling book. Hers is a miraculous story: On the morning of November 11th, 1995, she was woken from a dream and an inner voice "told her" to write her first book. She did it in an hour and signed a publishing deal for God Made Easy three weeks later.

The single mother of Elijah (now grown and living nearby), Patrice lives and writes near the beach in Ventura, California, where she is currently editing her memoir (and what a wild ride it has been!), and still gazing up in wonder at starry nights.

Patrice loves to hear from her readers! To find out more or to contact Patrice, go to If you reach out--she promises to reach back!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book I’ve ever bought
By Amanda on October 15, 2018
My daughter is five and she is always asking me about death and dying. I’m not sick or anything but she is very curious. I have to say it scares me when she asks and I tell her no matter what even in death I will always be with her even if I am not physically with her. I read so many mixed reviews but I bought this book and I read it to Rachel, then we read it again and it wasn’t until last night when she told me how much she loved the invisible string and asked me to wrap it around her and then she told me she was taking the invisible string to school with her today that I realized how very special and beautiful this book is to a child. This book is absolutely a gift to any child.
