One spontaneous act can change a life forever. When twenty-four-year-old Ellen, a broken survivor of the foster care system, impulsively follows blind Temerity and prevents her from being mugged, Ellen’s solitary life cracks. Over the course of the novel, Ellen slowly becomes a participant in and not just an observer/recorder of her world. With violinist Temerity and her anthropologist brother Justice’s help, Ellen affects positive change in the lives of a pregnant neighbor, a shot-up drug dealer, and a harassed co-worker. Along the way these activities transform Ellen, emotionally and physically, allowing her to become more “visible” to herself and others – cutting away her life scars, figuratively and literally. If you have an interest in knowing how humans do/do not connect or in understanding the protectiveness of “invisibility” while traversing through life, Ellen’s story will both enlighten and touch you. Strive for visibility – everyone deserves to be seen. - Adrean— From Adrean Darce Brent
Praise for Invisible Ellen
"Invisible Ellen is a heartfelt and moving portrait of life on the sidelines. It is a book for anyone who has ever felt they didn't count. And who hasn't felt that way at least once? A lovely, compelling novel about a woman you won't soon forget."
—Kristin Hannah, #1 New York Times-bestselling author of Fly Away
“Look out world, a new dynamic duo is in town! Ellen and Temerity sparkle on the page in this tale of unlikely friendships, heartbreak, paying it forward and taking a stand!”
—Gena Showalter, author of Beauty Awakened
“Ellen is the most unique, well crafted heroine I have ever had the pleasure of taking a journey with. Every character jumps out at you in full bright color and is utterly unique. It moves me to think about how many "invisible" people this book will touch and make stronger.”
—Claudia Christian, actress on Babylon 5
