Must you be able to see something for it to exist? This is the question that faces Ahern's (Rosie Dunne) heroine, uptight interior decorator Elizabeth Egan. Looking after her six-year-old nephew, Luke, has honed her skills as both a caretaker and a control freak, but her ordered life takes an unexpected turn with the appearance of Luke's new friend, Ivan, who happens to be invisible. Does Ivan really exist? Maybe, maybe not; but his effect on Elizabeth is real enough. She loosens up, learns how to have fun, and reconciles her troubled past. While Ahern's Irish fans are probably accustomed to magical creatures like fairies, leprechauns, and invisible friends, American readers may have trouble suspending disbelief long enough to find Ivan a convincing hero. Despite the choppy writing and distracting viewpoints, the story line is original and charming in a bizarre, chick-lit-meets-Harry-Potter kind of way. This novel by the daughter of Ireland's prime minister is recommended for large popular fiction collections.

In her third novel, Ahern (P.S., I Love You and Love, Rosie) employs an imaginary best friend to breathe distinctiveness into an otherwise stereotypical Irish tale. Living in her own house in a small, posh Irish town, 35-year-old Elizabeth Egan is an uptight interior designer and adoptive mother to her six-year-old nephew, Luke, whose mother, Elizabeth's 23-year-old sister, Saoirse, prefers boozing to parenting. Saoirse's behavior reminds Elizabeth of a painful past-the alcoholic mother who abandoned the family, leaving Elizabeth to care for her baby sister and forgo her own childhood, and the emotionally distant, controlling father still waiting for his wife's return. Unlike the other women in her family, Elizabeth adheres to a fastidiously well-ordered existence-no mess, no complications, no love. But all that changes with the arrival of Ivan, a goofy and spontaneous man intent on infusing much-needed fun and tenderness into Elizabeth's frigid persona. The catch is no one can see this ageless man from the land of "Ekam Eveileb" save Elizabeth and her nephew. Through Ivan, Elizabeth becomes the woman she's always been too afraid to be. He helps her reclaim the childhood she never had and, most importantly, to forgive those who have let her down. Ahern tempers heartbreak with hope and playfulness in this uplifting, sentimental tale.
