Hola:

Estoy empezando un libro y en las tres primeras líneas me encuentro con a dark thread of white, ¿sabe alguien qué significa esto?

Five a.m. Too early to eat. There is hardly any light, perhaps just enough to distinguis a dark thread of white, but Kawsar washes her face in the basin inside her bathroom, runs an caday over her teeth and slips...

Muchas gracias de antemano.

    I think the author probably speaks a dialect of English in which 'of' can replace 'from', so I'd say this:
    Las cinco de la mañana. Demasiado temprano para comer. Hay luz escasa, tal vez bastante para distinguir entre un hilo oscuro y un blanco, pero Kawsar lava su cara...

    Is that any better?
