In A Thread Unbroken, Kay Bratt weaves a beautiful tale of heartbreak, sorrow and perseverance fueled by love. Although a work of fiction, Bratt uses real life tales of child abduction and forced marriages to create a story of the unbreakable bond of a father and daughter, determined to be reunited. -Denise Grover Swank, USA Today Best Selling Author

“In
A Thread Unbroken, Kay Bratt weaves a beautiful tale of heartbreak, sorrow and perseverance fueled by love. Although a work of fiction, Bratt uses real life tales of child abduction and forced marriages to create a story of the unbreakable bond of a father and daughter, determined to be reunited.” ―Denise Grover Swank, USA Today bestselling author

“Kay Bratt, an advocate for children from China, provides a fascinating glimpse of childhood in the world’s largest country. The main characters are young girls with a very loving father, dispelling the myth that Chinese do not value daughters. Yet it also shows the shadowy side of the girls’ lives when they are abducted to be sold, a practice that lamentably has not been completely suppressed. You will learn about the joys and hardships of growing up female in Asia, with plenty of thrills along the way to keep you reading.”
―Mingmei Yip, author of Skeleton Women and Song of the Silk Road

“In this novelized yet all-too-real tale of two kidnapped Chinese children trying to find their way home, advocate turned author Kay Bratt focuses her story-telling sights on one of China’s least addressed issues: human trafficking.”
―Tom Carter, author of CHINA: Portrait of a People

Kay Bratt; Writer, Rescuer, Wanderer

As a writer, Kay used writing to help her navigate a tumultuous childhood, followed by a decade of abuse as an adult. After working her way through the hard years, Kay emerged a survivor and a pursuer of peace—and finally found the courage to share her stories. She is the author of more than two dozen books, with ten of those published by Lake Union Publishing. Kay writes women’s fiction and historical fiction, and her books have fueled many exciting book club discussions. Her works have been translated into German, Korean, Chinese, Hungarian, Czech, Estonian, and have made it into the hands of more than a million readers around the world.

As a rescuer, Kay currently focuses her efforts on animal rescue and is the Director of Advocacy for Yorkie Rescue of the Carolinas. As a child advocate, she spent a number of years volunteering in a Chinese orphanage, as well as provided assistance for several nonprofit organizations that support children in China, including An Orphan’s Wish (AOW), Pearl River Outreach, and Love Without Boundaries. In the USA, she actively served as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) for abused and neglected children in Georgia, and spear-headed numerous outreach programs for underprivileged children in the South Carolina area.

As a wanderer, Kay has lived in nearly three dozen different homes, on two continents and in states from coast to coast in the USA. She’s traveled to Mexico, Thailand, Malaysia, China, Philippines, Central America, Bahamas, and Australia. Currently she and her soulmate of more than 25 years enjoy life in their forever home on the banks of Lake Hartwell in Georgia, USA.

Kay has been described as southern, spicy, and a little sassy. Social media forces her to overshare and you don’t want to miss some of the antics that goes on with her and the Bratt Pack.

Find her on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and then buckle up and enjoy the ride. You can find a full list of her published works at www.kaybratt.com -- To be notified when new books are released, please sign up for my monthly email newsletter at www.kaybratt.com or at this link:
