When 26-year-old poet and anarchist Adrian starts a small uprising against the new dictatorial North American Federation, he realizes he is in way over his head. The people who have joined him are both awe-inspiring and terrifying in their bravery and their violence, and he must learn to accept that he was unprepared to lead such a motley crew. Among his comrades are a former mob hitman, a black market weapons trafficker, a straight-A private school student and a well-respected doctor, but not all of them are quite so straight forward. A trained assassin with a sense of intuition too acute to be normal and her old friend, a temperamental arsonist who is never seen with matches or a lighter, are tight-lipped about their mysterious past and prove to be the biggest thorns in Adrian's side while still managing to come through for him repeatedly. Chiremos isn't as far away as it seems in this story of dangerous and unpredictable times, and like Aelunna, Adrian finds that he can trust almost no one.
Sustained by the metaphor of knitting, the memoir Love is the Thread traces the way one spiritual friendship can change all our relationships, with strangers and friends, from friends to family, and beyond. Love is the Thread centers on the friendship between two women, one snared in a life-long struggle with bipolar disorder, the other reweaving her life after an abusive relationship. Spirituality, encounters with nature, and vacations on the Delaware shore form the threads of a friendship as varied and closely knit as the stitches in a handmade sweater. From the discovery of hidden colors in fresh snow to the satisfaction of teaching a young nephew to knit, Love is the Thread savors life's small glories, ultimate challenges, and all the moments of humor and tenderness in between.
