That was a hard truth, but who else was closer to the boy? His father? Social services? Elizabeth had been the first on scene when Gideon’s mother went missing. It might have ended there, but she’d also found Julia Strange broken on the altar of Elizabeth’s father’s church, the body so vulnerable in
its desecration she’d almost wept.They’d never once met; and yet Elizabeth, even now, felt a kinship between them, a thread that twisted through thirteen years and found its embodiment in the small boy left behind. A man such as Beckett would never understand that. He couldn’t.
I'm so sorry if the paragraph exceeds 4 sentences. I just thought that more context needed.
What does "a thread that twisted through thirteen years and found its embodiment in the small boy left behind." mean?
