Reviews

"Hislop is a clever storyteller. . . 20th-century Greece and her citizens are brought vividly to life. Striking an excellent balance between historicity and impassioned drama, Hislop's newest should not be missed." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Hislop's vivid storytelling makes a fascinating, turbulent place and time spring to life." -- Cleveland Plain Dealer

"Combining a keen eye for detail with her usual fluid writing style, Hislop presents an engrossing excursion to Thessaloniki, Greece's second-largest metropolis. . . . This fast-moving, touching saga about tragedy, recovery, and the real meaning of family is full of dramatic incidents demonstrating their city's transformation and resilience." -- Booklist

"A brilliant page turner and destined to become a reading group staple, THE THREAD is rich with drama and historical detail." -- Glamour (UK)

"Hislop writes in rich, vivid detail about the city by the sea, bringing its diverse population to life. . . . Sweeping in scope yet intimate in detail, THE THREAD is a love letter to Greece and a testament to the courage and adaptability of its people." -- Shelf Awareness
