Overview

Sunday Times and New York Times bestselling author Cathy Glass returns with her first novel. The Girl in the Mirror is a moving and gripping story of a young woman who tries to piece together her past and uncovers a dreadful family secret that has been buried and forgotten.When Mandy learns her much-loved Grandpa is dying, she is devasted and returns to the house where she spent so many wonderful summers as a child. But the childhood visits ended abruptly and those happy days are now long gone. Having lost touch with the rest of her family, Mandy returns as a virtual stranger to her aunt's house to nurse her grandfather.Mandy hardly recognises the house that she loved so much as a child and it is almost as though her mind has blanked it out. But as certain memories come back to her, Mandy begins to piece together the events that brought a sudden end to her visits that fateful summer. What she discovers is so painful and shocking that she understands why it was buried and never spoken of by the family for all those years.

I liked a lot of the characters; I liked Cathy Glass' writing style. But the book wasn't anything exceptional. It was slow-going for a lot of the book. The authors' other books are far superior.

The first third or so was p l o d d i n g along. T he author became tedious and redundant in her determination to tell us there existed Repressed Memories. Once this was told (and told and told) there was a worthwhile story being shared. The plot's denouement provided a satisfying closure. The mother characters seemed undeveloped, considering the themes. Mrs. Pryce was essential, as readers cannot dive in to help. I have read several of the memoirs by this same author, and that form seems a better fit for her.
