Product description


'On the surface, Invisible Threads is a novel about an English woman on a personal journey to India, and comes with many of the trappings we'd expect ... The deeper issue of Invisible Threads is the terrible position of girls and women in India, and Beresford skilfully weaves visceral examples of their plight into Sara's experience while she is there investigating her husband's death ... The book's great strength is the plurality of the title's Invisible Threads. These allude to the marital bond that pulls Sara along in her quest to discover how her husband died, and also to her links with the abused women of India she tries to help on the way. Beresford's novel is both enjoyable and eye-opening, alluring and appalling; it is a call to respect the ties that bind us all' --Spectator

'Beresford tells a taut, complex story, no less compelling for its compassion. Readers looking for a well-written psychological thriller could turn to Invisible Threads and not be disappointed, but this is a much more ambitious novel than that. Invisible Threads is du Maurier-esque at best; Beresford rarely sets a foot wrong' --Literary Review

'Deeper than all the Eat, Pray, Loves… a strong Dickensian social conscience.' --Waterstones, Best of Fiction
