The Mirror: A Review

Only coincidence led me to read The Mirror by Marlys Millhiser. I randomly picked the book from the library, and it proved to be very good. The story is about a mirror that changes the lives of two women on the eve of their wedding day. When their eyes meet in the mirror in one fateful moment, a grandmother and her granddaughter switch bodies and time periods to start a journey that will change their lives forever. A terrifying truth reveals itself - what was done will never be undone, and it takes the reader on a test of faith and hope for two; a woman too modern and opinionated for her time and a woman too timid for her time.

The novel explores ideas of destiny, morals, faith, and survival. The story may revolve around a paranormal idea, but it has solid events and characters with real depth and emotion. Definitely worth checking.
