Invisible Women is a game-changer; an uncompromising blitz of facts, sad, mad, bad and funny, making an unanswerable case and doing so brilliantly. It should be on every policymaker, politician and manager's shelves. "The Times (London)".

Invisible Scarlet O'Neil is a 1940-1956 American comic strip written and drawn by Russell Stamm, who had previously been an assistant to Chester Gould on Dick Tracy. The strip focused on Scarlet O'Neil, a plainclothes superhero (and one of the first superheroines) with the power of invisibility. Originally published by the Chicago Daily Times, Invisible Scarlet O'Neil began on June 3, 1940.

Patricia A. Mckillip. It took me some time to get his attention. He lay on the floor with his eyes closed; he prayed fervently, sometimes murmuring, sometimes shouting. Apparently the household was used to it. He lay on the floor with his eyes closed; he prayed fervently, sometimes murmuring, sometimes shouting tsteps pass his study door; a woman-his wife Abigail?-called to someone: If your throat is no better tomorrow, we’ll have Phillip pee in a cup for you to gargle. From the way the house smelled, Phillip didn’t bother much with cups. Cotton Mather smelled of smoke and sweat and wet wool. Winter had come early.

Bryony opened the door, stepped over the threshold and saw all the books, spines outward on the shelves, faces forward on the displays, stacked on the tables and stools and on the floor, and her first thought, as always, was: Mine. And then, as always, she cocked her head, listened and sniffed, and her second thought was: Is he here? This is a story about the power of imagination; it is also about books, cats, wood-engraving and bad photography; but most of all it is about a secret.

"You're telling me the Victoria and Albert Museum only exists because seven guys needed to hide a handful of objects for a hundred years?" Finding herself unable to draw anything but vines, 19-year-old Rebecca reluctantly puts her ambitions as an illustrator on hold when she is drawn into the machinations of a Victorian secret society founded to make safe an interface between parallel worlds. But first Rebecca has to grow up. Dragged into helping a cause in which she still barely believes, Rebecca finds herself playing Hunt-the-Thimble amongst England's oldest institutions. Over the course of her twentieth summer she will break a code, discover her astonishing ancestry, and half fall in love - twice. But what begins as a game will shake her to the core.

The Victoria and Albert Museum in London, England was created for one purpose: to hide the seven objects that were clues to the location of the door to a parallel world. Three cousins - Rebecca, Michael, and Connor - must solve the puzzle of the items to prevent this other world from spilling into ours. Misdirection and surprises are around every corner as they must find the door and stop it from opening. In the course of their journey, they discover some surprising insights into their shared ancestry.

This was a very intriguing read that just kept pulling me farther and farther into it. I keep wanting to call it "cozy sci-fi" as I wanted to sit on the couch with a pot of tea, a cat on my lap, and just surrender to the call of the book. A World Invisible is a lovely puzzle wrapped up in speculative fiction - do not pass this book by if you have a chance to read it. The only downside I found was that there are certain threads that are not neatly tied up in the end - I hope this means Joanna O'Neill has a second book in store. A definite 3.5 stars out of four.

The three cousins in this charming book had never met each other until they met by chance, or maybe not by chance, at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, England.

It seems that about one hundred and fifty years prior to the cousins' meeting, this world was visited by an inhabitant of a parallel world. This magical person stayed a while, and when he decided to go home, a crack between this world and his world was sealed by some ancestors of the three cousins. They built a room around the crack, and this room existed in both worlds. These ancestors left seven clues in various places so that their descendants might locate the clues in order to open the door to the room to reset the light reflections, which by then would have eaten through the crack. This would keep the worlds from intersecting once more.. I don't know how to explain this the way the author did. Suffice it to say that she did an excellent job in her explanation. Even I could almost understand it!.

What follows is a very well-written story about the search for these items. The author includes background information on the cousins and makes you understand what makes them tick. You start to care what happens to them, and I found myself pulling for them to be successful each time they went to a new location to retrieve one of the items. It was a little stressful in places.

The author almost makes you believe there could be a world next door to this one. Did I say "almost?" I might need to restate that. On second thought, you can decide for yourself when you read the book. The plot contains enough twists and turns to keep you interested without being so convoluted as to confuse you. Adding to the plot twists were a couple of surprises at the end.

I hope the author decides to continue the story. The reason I gave it four stars, instead of five is that there wasn't enough book! I wanted to read more about the characters lives.

I'd also like to see what happens in the world invisible - that is, the one invisible to our eyes.

All in all "A World Invisible" is worth your time. I think you'll find it to be an enjoyable read.

Despite a throbbing toothache and my 11 week-old American Bulldog puppy galloping around the house, I felt it necessary to write this review before any more time passed. With its appealing characters and captivating story line," A World Invisible" is a book I would highly recommend. A fantasy involving an alternate universe and quantum physics that can attract readers across continents is sure to require a sequel, even if it weren't left with many unresolved issues. The main characters that the story revolves around tantalize with their complex personalities and familial quandaries.

Michael, the catalyst who brings the three cousins together is handsome, enigmatic and apparently ageless and teenage Connor is difficult, brilliant and unexpectedly tender,especially towards Rebecca whose pixie haircut and querulous nature does nothing to distract from her bewitching looks.

Together they form a clever, astute alliance as suggested by an ancient manuscript. Their quest is to find seven objects left by long ago ancestors. The objects when used properly will help the three to discover the mystery of their lineage, which O'Neill only hints at being exceedingly strange. It will also set off a series of events that ultimately saves two worlds, our world and the alternate world that was discovered by their ancestors. The biggest problems the three face do not come as a surprise. They each come with their own set of emotional issues and frequently step to the forefront as their own worst enemies. O'Neill adds some minor characters to move the story along but Michael, Rebecca and Connor interact in much the same way that the objects that unlock the alternate universe interact. There is more to O'Neill's story-telling than the mere relating of the story. I suspect that quantum entanglement in "A World Invisible" refers to the relationship between three lonely people who find that in working together they discover amazing revelations they never suspected existed in the world they inhabit. Read this book! You will be left anticipating a sequel in the same way that Michael, Rebecca and Connor anticipate using the hard-won objects to uncover "A World Invisible".A World Invisible
