The Girl in the Mirror : A Novel Inspired by a True Story Paperback
by Cathy Glass
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.

Review by bhowell
This is an easy and entertaining read. A former foster parent, British writer Cathy Glass writes heartrending stories of abused children which are very popular in Britain and now Canada. She is a Sunday Times bestselling author but does not seem to have penetrated the US market yet. These are not literary books but they are are a decent read.
