Desperate for a daughter, Fleur is devastated when she discovers she’s had a phantom pregnancy and goes into a decline. While still in hospital, she becomes invisible and is able to leave her real body behind and meet up with others like her. These people have two things in common: they’ve suffered great setbacks and they all have colours as their surnames.

Fleur is known as Purple (her maiden name) and while in her invisible state the only person she can communicate with – apart from the Colours – is her young son. We see her husband trying to cope and I rather liked this side of the tale, though the family set-up is rather peculiar, which left me wondering why she put up with it in the first place.

This story’s premise is unique but I admit I found it difficult to suspend belief in order to enjoy it as much as I wanted to – of course, that could just be me.
