Overview

Pat Harris is a 30-something postgraduate, unmarried woman at loggerheads with her mother, Phyllis Harris. When Lew Harris, father and husband, dies suddenly, jealously-nurtured venom harbored by both women explodes. "Mirror, Mirror..." shows how Pat and Phyllis learn to understand and appreciate each other--the love was always there. Along the way, Pat gives birth to Sasha, sired by an old platonic friend, Clem. They eventually marry when the child is 12-years old. Annette, Phyllis' older sister living in Rhode Island, had raised Phyllis since their mother died when they were ages 13 and 9, respectively. Annette comes to console Phyllis after Lew's death; she leaves abruptly and insulted. Bertie is a good friend of Pat's, a generation older. Other characters that become entwined in the story are Petra and Ruth, who are a lesbian couple, neighbors and friends of Pat and Sasha; Old Arthur, Bertie's seldom-seen ex-huzzband; Bertie's adult children, and Andrew, Phyllis' much-younger boyfriend.
