Publisher's Summary

On September 11, 2020, Ginny and Katie Smith celebrate their 19th birthday at a country fair near Seattle. Ignoring the warnings of a fortune-teller, they enter a house of mirrors and exit in May 1964. Armed with the knowledge they need to return to their time, they try to make the most of what they believe will be a four-month vacation. But their 60s adventure becomes complicated when they meet a revered great-grandmother and fall in love with local boys.
In The Mirror, the sequel to The Mine and The Show, the sisters find happiness and heartbreak as they confront unexpected challenges and gut-wrenching choices in the age of civil rights, the Beatles, and Vietnam.

Time Travel, Great Characters! What's Not to Like?

The worst thing about time travel books for me is the confusion I experience when characters assiduously try to avoid meeting themselves in time. Casting aside physics and theories and all, I just want a book where it's ok for characters to meet either themselves or their ancestors, and I found one in this book. This is the account of two sisters who nonchalantly visit a fair in 2017 and are inexplicablly drawn to a particular mirror in a house of mirrors exhibition. As they look at the mirror, admiring particuarly the frame, one of them literally disappears into it. Her twin has no choice but to attempt to follow suit, and so she presses against the glass and joins her sister in Washington State, but most decidedly not in 2017 or any year close to it.

This, then, is a glorious story of two well-developed characters who are vivid and memorable because of the talent of this author. This is the story of a different America, one in which the young women find romance and experience heartbreak. Ultimately, they must decide whether they can even return to their time and lives.

Even if you're not familiar with this author, you need to buy this book for the sake of the narration. It is absolutely through the stratosphere. Whatever they paid this woman who did the narration simply wasn't enough. She breathed life into the twins and her delivery, presence, and inflections alone were enough to keep me glued to my book player. She has one of those lovely well-modulated voices that she didn't distort by trying to sound like someone else depending on the character she was narrating. This is an excellent book in print; in audio, it sparkles.

Hello 1960s!

I really enjoyed this time travel story, It only being the 2nd one I have read in this genre for me. I found that really liked this one! It was emotional, and well thought out. I loved that I thought i knew what was going to happen at the end, but i was wrong! well done.

This is book 5 of a series, and the only one I have read out of it. I was not lost. It can be a stand alone book.
