For 20 years or so I have thought about The Mirror in one way or another. My paperback version from 1979 is long gone, but I can still see the cover. And the characters and the situations they are in are vivid memories that have come back to me over and over when I least expected it. And now here is the 20th anniversary edition! It is a quirky story that cannot be catagorized. A young woman who is reluctant to marry looks into an antique mirror and finds her self sent back to her grandmother''s time and into her grandmother''s body! She must find a way to get back, not realizing right away that her grandmother is in her body! What a surprise for both and what a delight for the reader. This is a time travel book that is smart, funny, sassy, and full of truth about relationships between women. Twice in my life I couldn''t put it down!
