Threads of Life is Clare’s first book. It is a Sunday Times Bestseller, BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week, it was the winner of Saltire First Book Award and Waterstones Scottish Book of the Month.
Threads of Life is a chronicle of identity, protest, memory, power, and politics told through the stories of needlework and celebrates the age-old, universal, and underexplored beauty and power of sewing. It is an evocative and moving book about the need we have to tell our story.
