More About the Author

Leslie Moïse's began writing at age nine, right after she read Little Women for the first of several thousand times. "I identified with Jo, and knew I was a writer like her." Less than a decade later, the British magazine Light Horse published her autobiographical story, "An American at Windmill Hill," Moise's memoir, Love is the Thread, about knitting, friendship, loss and love, will be published by Pearlsong Press.

Dr. Moise's stories, articles and essays published in the U.S., Canada, and Great Britain, most recently in the national publication Science of Mind and her bi-monthly column in the regional magazine Odyssey. She writes reviews for Bookpage; other works have appeared in journals as diverse as The Chronicle of the Horse and the Canadian Horses All, women's magazines like Radiance and Daily Horizons; even literary or academic journals such as Southwestern Review and The Charles Lamb Bulletin. Dr. Moïse worked as a reporter for The Cumberland Times, and has edited book manuscripts, literary journals, travel magazines and association newsletters. She taught college English for twenty years, from composition to advanced exposition, creative writing and literature. Her Ph.D. in English from the University of Louisianna at Lafayette focused on 19 C. British Literature, folkore and creative writing, while her M.A. and B.S. from the University of Louisville centered on culture, organization and writing, from copywriting to fiction.

Format: Paperback
I read this book over Thanksgiving weekend which was very apropos since it reminds me to be thankful for what I have, especially the small gifts life sends our way. Each chapter ends with a statement of wise wisdom that sums up the "lesson" of that chapter. The chapters stand alone and are quickly read. I found it best to read a chapter and then mull it over for a bit. I was tempted to rush through the book to find where the trail of threads was leading, but resisting that temptation and letting the words seep into me was a better method.

I enjoyed this read, especially the glimpses into this special friendship and the questions left unanswered - this would make for good book club material as you can endlessly discuss these points. I am still wondering what material token the author selected from Kristine's affects. I want more about the evolution the mountain house brought to the author's soul and work. The sign of a good book - always wanting more.

There are books that bring enjoyment and ones, like this one, that are a profound experience. I stayed up way past my bedtime to devour this book then time with a tissue box dabbing tears of love in reflection of those who have shared my own journey mixed with moments of excitement thinking of friends who would love this book. Well, get your own copy girlfriend! My copy will forever be on my nightstand to pick up for a quick chapter, a pearl of wisdom or the beautiful description of spring on a cold February night. Definitely a winner for a book club!!! The many sweet layers of this book beg for discussion.
Love is a Thread will weave magic in your soul.

Leslie Moise has written a wonderful book of acceptance and love between two friends who
meet at a time in their lives when they both need to gain strength and to emotionally heal. Is is an example of what unconditional friendship looks like. The wisdon, wit, laughter and tears laced with raw honesty throughout this book make it a great read.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A deeply moving memoir of the author's friendship with the woman who taught her to knit, among many other things. The two of them faced many challenges together, helping each other deal with past traumas and the mental and emotional scars that resulted.
This is a story of love, healing, acceptance, and letting go.

By Patricia on March 10, 2012
Format: Paperback
How much do we all value friendship? How hard is it to find a wise, loving, un-possessive person to open our heart to in a shared friendship? Moise found this. It lasted as long as it could. Parts of it will remain with her forever. It is a friendship of the soul, but who among us is perfect? Moise is honest in her accounts of her friend's sickness with fears and foibles included. it is not a fairy tale of friendship. It is a true rendering of the joys of emotional connection possible with another person. This is a story of real love, well told with a great deal of wisdom. I recommend it highly. What a way to live! What a way to think! A good friendship can be the heart blood of life for women.
