BELVIDERE, Ill. — Author Allison A. Buchstaber’s new romance novel, The Unseen, depicts the real test of true love.

The Unseen introduces readers to siblings Dan, Matt and Sue. Living in his brother’s shadow, Matt never seemed to attract his parents’ attention, unlike Sue and Dan. No matter how hard he tries, there seems to be no way to receive the attention for which he longs.
