Do you ever feel like you’re invisible?
I do. Sometimes.
What would happen if you truly became invisible—and your family didn’t even notice!
That’s the premise for the book Calling Invisible Women by Jeanne Ray.
Here’s the synopsis from Amazon.com:
A mom in her early fifties, Clover knows she no longer turns heads the way she used to, and she's only really missed when dinner isn't on the table on time. Then Clover wakes up one morning to discover she's invisible--truly invisible. She panics even more when her family doesn't notice a thing. Her best friend immediately observes the change, which relieves Clover immensely--she's not losing her mind after all!--but she is crushed by the realization that neither her husband nor her children ever truly look at her. She was invisible even before she knew it.
Clover discovers that there are others like her, women of a certain age who seem to have disappeared. As she uses her invisibility to get to know her family and her town better, Clover leads the way in helping invisible women become recognized and appreciated no matter what their role.
My Point Of View: The book has a unique premise which drew me to it. I can understand the feeling that your family doesn’t see you—they simply take for granted all that you do. The book also makes you realize how much time you take looking good—ie, applying makeup, buying the “right” outfit...is it really all necessary? I don’t want to give away too much but I really enjoyed the book. The ending put a huge smile on my face. This is the perfect beach book—or anytime book, really.
