I absolutely loved reading "Invisible Ink" written by Pippa Kelly. I was hooked from the first chapter when the main protagonist of the story was still a young boy. Pippa Kelly allows the reader to get inside the heart and mind of Maxi as a child and as a man by cleverly juxtaposing the story in a beautiful and sensitive way.
Throughout the story she never fails to deliver the imagery required to feed the readers imagination. I could almost see Maxi and Peter playing on the trapeze and enjoying their boyish activities together. Because of the sibling rivalry, the reader is kept guessing if just maybe Maxi does have something to do with his brother going missing. This is reinforced by the emotional pain that Maxi is suffering and how this impacts on his working and his personnel life.
The subject of dementia is woven into the story , without impacting on the main theme which is the story of a missing child a heartbreaking emotion that touches the readers heart.
