The Invisible Project by Evelyn Jean Pine & Katja Rivera
Tiffany Armor, a prominent scientist in the field of Invisibility, is on the verge of an eye-opening breakthrough when her efforts are eclipsed by a competing lab. Not only must she deal with this setback, but she also has to contend with Amber, her artist sister, who's in the midst of an emotional meltdown; Sam, her troubled teenaged son, who wants to know more about his absent father; and, Ingrid, her Columbian housekeeper, who's an undocumented immigrant fleeing a troubled past.
Though at odds, Tiffany, Amber and Ingrid come together to discover the superpower of Invisibility. They each have their own agenda on how best to unleash their joint discovery. Their conflicting choices change their lives, and the consequences reverberate globally as we travel with them through time. Science and art are both celebrated as these women explore the limits and possibilities of gender.
