Sunday Times and New York Times best-selling 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 devastated 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 had 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.

Need to clarify it is fiction

What would have made The Girl in the Mirror better?

If the book had been different from her nonfiction. I was listening trying to figure out what was going on.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Just not prepared for a fiction novel from Cathy Glass.

A Moving Piece

I found this book one of her most moving books I've read. Though it was fiction I know people from whom this book could have been their lives. It is a poignant piece of literature that is very touching. At the same time it is hard to read as you realize that the adults made bad decisions that affected the lives of many girls around the uncle as this Pedophile was able to go many years raping young girls he came into contact with. If his brother and Mandy's parents had done what was right and turned him in he would have had to stop for a few years while in prison and then living in places would've been more difficult as people would be forewarned about his proclivity.

Great book to read or listen to.
