Well researched and chuck full of early eighteenth century colonial people, places and events cleverly woven amid fictional characters-'Threads - An American Tapestry (ISBN 9781438974156) is a third novel for author Gloria Waldron Hukle. The story chronologically follows 'Manhattan: Seeds of the Big Apple', the l7th century saga set in New Amsterdam that becomes New York City. ( visit www.authorgloriawaldronhukle.com ) In the opening scene Margaret Vandenberg, wealthy, strong-minded, intelligent (sole daughter of a Dutch immigrant and Native American) watches the departure of the census taker's carriage, fearful that the provincial official has made a few dangerous discoveries while visiting her vast 'northern plantation'. Margaret's main concern--one that she has trouble believing herself-- is that one of her beloved Negro slaves is helping runaways. Later an attack is the catalyst for a horrific discovery from which Margaret and her people struggle to recover. Margaret, despite her wealth and position, is no stranger to prejudice. Well into her thirties, as she prepares to marry for the first time she faces many issues. She vows that she will leave all of this in God's hands--but can she? ***************************************** Greenbush Life News (edited) Published January l7, 2009 Gloria Waldron Hukle...Bringing New York History to Life Julie Rigg wirtes "Hukle brings real historical figures together with fictional characters to tell the stories of the first settlers of Manhattan and the Hudson River Valley Region.
