K. Cates and her husband, Chad, were an ordinary couple who attended church, enjoyed barbeques with friends on the weekends, and unconditionally loved their two children—until thirty seconds changed their lives forever.
In her memoir that addresses tough questions about life, loss, and purpose, Cates chronicles her heart-wrenching journey after her son’s tragic death in a car accident as she fought not only for her own survival through the darkness of grief and blame, but also for her marriage and her faith. With candor and a unique perspective, Cates shares a vulnerable glimpse into the moments before, during, and after a tragedy as she was forced to look at life from an entirely different perspective. A fine balance of adversity and optimism, Cates provides encouragement for others to keep searching for the light, even when it seems all is lost.
The Golden Thread shares a true story about God’s grace, love, and faith after tragedy rocks one woman’s world and leads her to find herself—and a new purpose—amid the darkest of circumstances.
