Jaimie Reese's life is a series of endless dead ends. Her father is in prison. Her mother walked out when she was in kindergarten and now she finds herself being bounced from one Midwestern foster home to the next. Highly intelligent, but fiercely introverted, Jaimie can never quite connect with anyone or anyplace for long which leads to cyclical, reckless behavior. Shortly after her eighteenth birthday, knowing she is no longer a ward of the state, Jaimie changes her name and drives west not knowing where she will eventually land. Carving out a new life as Brynn Williams in Portland, Oregon is difficult, and she eventually learns that traits of both her father and mother are woven deeply within her personality and the life experiences she encounters. Desperately wanting to cut ties with her past, Brynn moves to Ottawa Institute, a spiritual retreat center in coastal northern California, where she feels at home for the first time in her life. After she establishes roots in a new relationship and a place that allows Brynn to finally soften her heart, a distant relative suddenly reveals herself and unearths long buried secrets about her mother. COMMON THREADS unwinds the multiple strands that create a woman's life, then weaves them back together into a journey that is both extraordinary and quietly triumphant.
