Overview

Mirrors is a very fine novel, well worth your time and treasure.”—The Bay Area Reporter

“Marianne Martin is a wonderful story teller and a graceful writer.”—Ann Bannon

“This is a novel of discovery that reaches into the deeply personal and well beyond. . . . Marianne Martin achieves new heights with this lovingly researched and intelligent novel.”—Katherine V. Forrest

They both have dedication. Passion. Commitment. No wonder Jean and Shayna are best friends. Jean Carson is a teacher, striving to make a difference to her students. Shayna Bradley is an attorney, determined to help lesbian mothers keep their kids.

Shayna has her life under control, has things just how she likes it: her own law practice and a girlfriend and, always, her best friend Jean.

For Jean, it’s different. There’s always Shayna. There are her students toobut there’s also a husband, and he’s anxious for kids. She’s made excuses, but she knows it isn’t fair. She’s short-changing him, and she’s short-changing herself.

She must find the strength to leave. And then she must find the courage to face facts: Shayna is more than a friend.

It’s a new reality, and one that catches both women unawares. And when the school board learns of Jean’s “situation,” suddenly Jean and Shayna face greater risks to their happinessand their dreamsthan they ever anticipated.

Dedication. Passion. Commitment. They may not be enough.

Mirrors was shortlisted for a Lambda Literary Award when it was first published in 2001.

    An instant classic

    Shayna Bradley has kept a secret for three years, her romantic feelings toward her best friend, Jean Carson. When Jean finally draws the courage to leave her comfortable but unfulfilling marriage, she must face her own secrets¿feelings long buried under her teaching career and a hefty pile of Catholic doctrine. As these two unlikely partners come to terms with guilty pasts and face uncertain futures, their relationship must either grow or die. Filled with realistic subplots¿sexual harassment, family tragedy, conditional love, and incest¿MIRRORS is a story that could happen down the street or right next door. The characters are well defined and evolving, and the subtle scene descriptions transport the reader without slowing the novel¿s smooth pace. Ms. Martin has an uncanny knack for knowing what her readers want and serves it up piping hot.

    Worth the wait!

    I waited for this novel and was not disappointed. The two main characters are people you really want to know and when you're done with the book you don't want to put it down! EXCELLENT!

    AN EXCELLENT JOURNEY THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS

    I waited with great anticipation for this novel, and I wasn't disappointed! Martin delivers a rich, entertaining, and heartfelt book peopled by characters you wish you knew in real life. How can you help but root for Jean and Shayna--especially since Jean is a teacher! This is Martin's best book so far, but I anticipate many more fine novels from this gifted author. I give MIRRORS my highest recommendation.
