M.A. Bonuso is a writer, wife, and mother of two sons based in a small town west of St. Louis, MO. After being caught in several economic downturns that forced her in and out of employment and taking a disheartening job in a call center before her family's health insurance ran out, she decided to pursue her dream to write stories that readers would enjoy. Her first novel in the Threads of the Departed Trilogy is Strands. She is also the author of Unraveled and Frayed.
Author M A Bonuso weaves an exciting tale of intrigue, adventure and romance in her debut trilogy: Threads of the Departed. The first volume, Strands, begins in 1988 in Pheasant Mills, North Carolina with beautiful young weaver, Carrie Pyles and Patty McMurphy, a shop owner from a prominent family. When Patty dies unexpectedly, Carrie becomes the sole heir to a fortune she could never have imagined. From unexplained gems and jewelry to unsolved crimes, Carrie and her friend Sergeant Lament trace the loose threads that form the fabric of Patty McMurphy’s dysfunctional legacy—only to unravel strands that are frayed in the bitter end.
