Visible, Invisible and Beyond (buy on Amazon)
While many angels go on debating and wondering about human lives, two angels have descended in a small house on Earth upon the command of the Creator. One of them carries the new soul that is to be released in the womb of a woman. It is summer and the night is deliciously warm.
In a fascinating blend of physical and spiritual storytelling, Tulip Chowdhury details the life cycle of a soul before, during, and after its descent to Earth in Visible, Invisible and Beyond.
The story begins within the “invisible” world, where an omnipotent Creator individually forms the souls that will eventually inhabit the physical world. One such soul blossoms into a young woman named Lotus.
Follow Lotus’s journey through life, from her birth through her life in the bustling South Asian country of Bangladesh. While ultimately a spiritual odyssey, the novel also acts as a reflection of modern life in this developing nation as the economy grows and more women join the workforce.
A compelling read from start to finish, Visible, Invisible and Beyond deftly explores the force behind all creation through the story of one solitary life.
