By the author the bestselling, intelligent "A Natural History of the Senses," this newer book is equally as engaging. "A Slender Thread" refers to the narrowest, most fragile thread of hope that can make the difference between life and suicide. The author knows her stuff - she served as a counselor for a suicide-prevention hotline. But more than that, this book chronicles her deeper thoughts on nature itself, on choices, on compassion, on relationships, and on desperation. I found it to be incredibly thought-provoking, a book that will stay on my mind for a long time.
