Half Chinese and half Canadian Katherine Goodnow struggles through a 1950's childhood hostile to all she represents. Then as a teenager she discovers jazz and her life is transformed. Her talent for the piano brings her freedom adventure and a sense of purpose helping her survive unexpected motherhood and her incurable love for the unreliable father of her children. Half American and half Afghani Mahsa Weaver is only twelve when after the death of her parents she is sent to live with strict relatives in Karachi. Struggling to break free she escapes to Montreal but the threads of her past are not so easily severed and she finds herself forced into an arranged marriage. For Mahsa too music becomes her solace and passion allowing her to dare to dream of a life that is really her own. When these two women meet in New York they begin a friendship that will change everything. Vividly rendered and sweeping in scope Under the Visible Life is a stunning meditation on how hope can remain alive in the darkest of times if we have someone with whom to share our burdens.
