Red Thread of Fate by Lyn Liao Butler
Contemporary Fiction, 352 pages
Published February 8, 2022 by Berkley Books

In the wake of a tragedy and fueled by guilt from a secret she's kept for years, a woman discovers how delicate the thread that binds family is in this powerful novel by Lyn Liao Butler.

Two days before Tam and Tony Kwan receive their letter of acceptance for the son they are adopting from China, Tony and his estranged cousin Mia are killed unexpectedly in an accident. A shell-shocked Tam learns she is named the guardian to Mia's five-year-old daughter, Angela. With no other family around, Tam has no choice but to agree to take in the girl she hasn't seen since the child was an infant.

Overwhelmed by her life suddenly being upended, Tam must also decide if she will complete the adoption on her own and bring home the son waiting for her in a Chinese orphanage. But when a long-concealed secret comes to light just as she and Angela start to bond, their fragile family is threatened. As Tam begins to unravel the events of Tony and Mia's past in China, she discovers the true meaning of love and the threads that bind her to the family she is fated to have.

Fans of Amy Tan, Celeste Ng, Liane Moriarty, and Lyn’s last book The Tiger Mom’s Tale will love this suspenseful and heartwarming tale of family, culture, and forgiveness.

My thoughts about Red Thread of Fate~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first lines.)

First lines—"She was on the phone with her husband when he died."

Oh my gosh! This story had my attention from the very first sentence. After that shocking and intriguing first sentence, the entire story drew me in. I felt deeply for Tam and what she was going through. So many questions, so many secrets. 

I pretty much put my life on hold to inhale this book and I loved every second of it! The storyline was captivating and the characters were loveable. The writing flowed from the pages and I felt very comfortable in Tam's world. I just want to squeeze Angela, she's so precious.

Lyn Liao Butler is a new-to-me author who has now become one of my must-read authors. I love her writing style and absolutely loved this story. I'm now off to get her first book to enjoy and I am looking forward to whatever she writes next. 

Definite 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 read for me!

I received a complimentary copy of Red Thread of Fate and this is my honest opinion.

About the author

Lyn Liao Butler was born in Taiwan and moved to the States when she was seven. Before becoming an author, she was a professional ballet and modern dancer, and is still a personal trainer, fitness instructor, and yoga instructor. She is an avid animal lover and fosters dogs as well as volunteers with rescues.

When she is not torturing clients or talking to imaginary characters, Lyn enjoys spending time with her FDNY husband, their son (the happiest little boy in the world), their three stubborn dachshunds, sewing for her Etsy shop, and trying crazy yoga poses on a stand-up paddleboard. So far, she has not fallen into the water yet. ~ Goodreads
