Book Review: Invisible Lives



Lakshmi Sen is a dutiful Bengali daughter, living in Seattle and helping her mother run their sari shop - but Lakshmi Sen has the "knowing", the ability to know what saris women need to grow, to heal, to love.

Despite an upcoming arranged marriage, Lakskmi finds herself falling for a American named Nick, and struggles through the book to find her heart and help those around her as they struggle with their own problems and demons.

This is an easy novel to read - meandering at times, but with lush colours and characters. The romance fell a bit flat for me, but I enjoyed dipping into another culture for a few hours, picturing the foods, the colours, the voices.
