Synopsis

When Evie and her father say good-bye at the train station, they
are both on their own for the first time since her mother's death. But
Evie is not lonely for long. At art school in London, she is quickly
caught up in colors and critiques, gallery visits and sketching
expeditions. She finds fiercely loyal friends-Rob, pragmatic and
pregnant; Bianca, dramatic and Italian; and Cecile, the sidelined
ballerina-and stumbles tentatively toward a relationship with Zeb, a
second-year sculptor with hair blue-black like a crow.

But
when her father arrives in the city, sour with alcohol and slumped on
the doorstep of her new home, Evie must determine what she owes her
past, and how it will shape the life, and the art, she's trying to
create.

Gently and genuinely observed, written with painterly beauty, Invisible River is an unforgettable novel of the mysteries, desolations, and heart-soaring hopes of entering adulthood.
