Clover sometimes felt invisible as a woman in her fifties with two grown children and a busy physician husband, but one morning she woke up truly invisible. Her new non-visual status was troubling enough, but her family didn’t notice which only made Clover feel more isolated, especially as time went by and her invisibility went undiscovered. Then one day she saw in the newspaper an ad for invisible women, and she found that there wasn’t just a few but a multitude of women just like her.
Clover with her newfound invisible friends are determined not to be pushed aside, but instead they find new and interesting uses for their invisibility and in the process make new discoveries about themselves and their lives. Calling Invisible Women: A Novel by Jeanne Ray is a delightful story that takes a humorous look at what it means to be invisible and what it takes to become visible again.
