A Haunting Tale About the Effect of War on Personal lives, this extraordinary novel moves seamlessly from the streets of Depression-era Winnipeg to the polar ice caps of Siberia, and finally into the war-scarred landscape of Korea. It tells the mesmerizing story of twin brothers born into an eccentric family led by a father drawn to the magic of "personal magnetism", and a German-immigrant mother obsessed with the ghosts of the past. When the favored twin is sent back by his mother to the fatherland to study music, he instead becomes an elite soldier in Nazi Germany and vanishes from sight. His sensitive brother moves toward an equally uncertain future, grappling with dark family secrets and the emotional turmoil that envelops his life. At the center of the story is the latter's childhood friend who, driven by his own history and terrible guilt, tries to even out the scales of life, unaware that his own fate lies in its balance.
With Marilyn Bowering's superb gift for storytelling, finely realized characters, and lyrical mastery of language, Visible Worlds resonates with the mystery and mysticism of the worlds we see, and those we can only imagine.
