NEW YORKand NASHVILLE, Tenn., Oct. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ ANGELS on EARTHis the highly anticipated follow up book from Laura Schroff, author of the #1 New York Times and international bestseller AN INVISIBLE THREAD.

Laura likened their decades-long unlikely friendship to 'an invisible thread,' which, according to an ancient Chinese proverb, 'connects people who are destined to meet.' Hundreds of thousands of readers fell in love with the story of Laura and Maurice, and many of them sent Laura their own 'invisible thread' stories. Now, Laura has collected some of those compelling, inspirational and poignant stories in ANGELS on EARTHwhich takes its name from Laura's belief that if we honor and activate the invisible thread connections in our lives, we can become angels on earth for each other.
