9781612184463: A Thread Unbroken

Chai and Josi share a bond that transcends ordinary friendship. While Chai has always been Josi’s protector—ever since they were toddlers, growing up together in a small Chinese village—she finds herself helpless when they are both abducted from their families and sold to faraway strangers. In their new home, with the family of the fisherman who bought them, their old lives are torn away piece by piece. But Chai knows she must stay strong if they’re to have any chance of escaping.

That same tenacious hope guides Chai’s father, Jun, who fights to find the girls and bring them home, despite seemingly insurmountable odds and a corrupt legal system. The days since the girls were taken soon stretch to weeks and months, but Chai’s spirit remains unbroken and Jun’s resolve unwavering.

Set against the backdrop of modern day China, A Thread Unbroken is an inspiring story of remarkable courage, indefatigable hope, and the invisible ties that hold people together, even when everything around them is falling apart.

About the Author:

Kay Bratt is a child advocate and author of the books Train to Nowhere, Chasing China, The Bridge, A Thread Unbroken, and the acclaimed memoir of the years she spent working in Chinese orphanages, Silent Tears: A Journey of Hope in a Chinese Orphanage. She has actively volunteered for several nonprofit organizations, including An Orphan’s Wish (AOW) and the Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for abused and neglected children. In China, she was honored with the Pride of the City award for humanitarian work. After living in China for several years, Bratt now resides in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in South Carolina, with her husband, daughter, dog, and cat.

Review:

"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
