By a Thread is a contemporary novel about a choice no mother should ever have to make.
Beautiful Judith Creed Oman finds herself in a desperate position. At seventeen, she unites (marries) with Joseph Oman, a young farmer in her closed community. They have a son they both adore, but now Judith is fearful – the community allows two children per family. Beyond two, children are taken away and raised in a community orphanage for the duration of their lives. When her child is past two, Judith is pregnant and alone in her farmhouse when she goes into labor. She delivers twin girls. This is her nightmare, three children.
By a Thread is the story of concealment and what Judith does to keep her daughters from being separated.

She opens her eyes to a space filled with white. Instinctively, she looks down at her slim length of body covered with a white sheet and blanket on a hospital bed. She is alone. It is deathly quiet. The one window in the room is muted glass, revealing only that it is daytime. Within minutes of waking, she closes her eyes as she hears someone at the door and then at her side, taking her pulse. Her female caretaker greets a man and the two of them discuss their patient’s progress. It is then that she opens her blue eyes to search for answers.
Who am I? Where am I? Why am I here? The answers are disconcerting. She does not feel, believe, or understand what they say. But if not who they claim she is, who is she?
