What choices would you make if you knew you may
From the multi award-winning, best-selling author of four books, including Here,
Home, Hope, a gripping and heart wrenching novel about a young mother who
has it all. The only problem is she may be dying.
In her previous works including All the Difference, Rouda's characters
"sparkle with humor and heart," and the stories are "told with
honest insight and humor" (Booklist). "Inspirational and
engaging" (ForeWord), these are the novels you'll turn to for
strong female characters and an "engaging read" (Kirkus).
In the Mirror is the story of Jennifer Benson, a woman who seems to have
it all. Diagnosed with cancer, she enters an experimental treatment facility to
tackle her disease the same way she tackled her life - head on. But while she's
busy fighting for a cure, running her business, planning a party, staying
connected with her kids, and trying to keep her sanity, she ignores her own
intuition and warnings from others and reignites an old relationship best left
If you knew you might die, what choices would you make? How would it affect
your marriage? How would you live each day? And how would you say no to the one
who got away?
"Kaira Rouda has created relatable characters you'll care deeply about.
Emotionally gripping and heart-achingly beautiful, In the Mirror will
make you think about what's truly important." ~ Tracey Garvis Graves, New
York Times bestselling author
“Balancing sadness and humor, the retrospective tone of this novel is both
therapeutic and affecting. In the Mirror is an emotion-packed novel
about a mother facing terminal cancer. It is a nostalgic tribute to the things
that really matter: family and friends.” ~ Foreword
"Rouda writes with a fluent, psychologically subtle realism that cuts
Jennifer’s pathos (and occasional self-pity) with humor and irony, and she
surrounds her with characters—doting dad; vain, shallow mom; mensch of a gay
business partner; sarcastic gal pals—who are sharply etched and entertaining.
Jennifer is a winning heroine, and readers will undoubtedly root for her as she
reaches for a more mature, if achingly uncertain, future. An absorbing story of
a woman grasping at life in the midst of death. ~ Kirkus Reviews
