—Tracie Peterson, best-selling author of more than one hundred fiction titles, including the Golden Gate Secrets series
“Kim Vogel Sawyer wove a story as strong and beautiful as the finest silk. Her characters; the background of the Atlanta Exposition; and the threads of racism, social classes, and the threat of modern inventions on old industries create a cloth of great beauty found in a riveting, fast-moving story. It has Sawyer’s trademark gentle heart, wisdom, and hope. And a happily-ever-after that will leave me smiling for a long time. Rarely have I been drawn into a book the way A Silken Thread drew me.”
—Mary Connealy, author of The Reluctant Warrior
“A Silken Thread will carry readers back to the 1895 Atlanta Exposition with a wonderful story that blends romance, family drama, and heart-tugging secrets, all while exploring the power of God’s grace to overcome prejudice and social-class differences. I was captivated by the intriguing characters and cheering for them to find a path forward through their struggles. Kim Vogel Sawyer’s novels always touch the heart, and I’m sure this one will be enjoyed by her faithful readers and those who are just discovering her writing.”
—Carrie Turansky, award-winning author of Across the Blue and Shine Like the Dawn
“Kim Vogel Sawyer is not afraid to address the challenging subjects of racial and class conflict, and she weaves these themes with a beautiful tale of romance and redemption in A Silken Thread.”
—Hannah Alexander, author of the Hallowed Halls series
“Kim Vogel Sawyer has done it again—captured my heart and attention in this newest book, A Silken Thread. Because the story is so beautifully written and told with such historical accuracy, I could not flip the pages fast enough. Laurel and Willie are beloved characters. Well-written characters contribute to the story’s believability, and the spiritual thread woven throughout this wonderful novel fed my reader’s soul. A Silken Thread is another winner!”
—Sharlene MacLaren, award-winning author of the Forever Freedom series and the Tennessee Dreams series
“Kim Vogel Sawyer’s A Silken Thread is set during the Atlanta Cotton Exposition of 1895. Middle-class Laurel Millard is hired as a silk weaver at the expo, where she hopes to make money and meet the man of her dreams. But Laurel’s expectations get turned around when she witnesses racism firsthand. This book captured my heart since I grew up in Georgia and lived in Atlanta for several years. The story, set well over one hundred years ago, reflects today’s society in a way that shows the importance of real family love and listening to God’s Word. We all can take a lesson from that. Truly an exquisite, well-researched, well-written story that is a testament to the silken thread that connects God to His people. What a treat!”
—Lenora Worth, author of Her Amish Child

It held my attention throughout the entire story. It taught valuable lessons on prejudice and the importance of family. Loved that even when a character made a selfish choice, God used it to help another. Sawyer has been my favorite author for years now, and will continue to be for many years to come!
