Format: Paperback
A special thank you to Real You Publishing Group and NetGalley for providing an ARC in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

Kaira Rouda did a superior job with an emotionally charged subject, handling it with delicacy and sensitivity.

A novel of a woman's loves, both past and present. Would highly recommend IN THE MIRROR to those families experiencing cancer, or other illnesses, as would be able to relate to the treatments, struggles, turmoil, and emotions.

When you look at the front cover of IN THE MIRROR, you see a woman looking in her rear view mirror, which hints the character would be looking back. The cover is very fitting for Jennifer's look at her past life, as she approaches the ending of her present and future life.

While reading, IN THE MIRROR, my mom, 82, very fit and young-looking, was undergoing her first chemo treatment (mixture of eight pills a day, and chemo drip every two weeks), for colon and secondary liver cancer. While I was reading about this young mother and her daily struggles with cancer, and Ralph the other strong character, I was thinking how insightful and therapeutic to learn what is actually going on inside the cancer's victim's mind.

Jennifer is a young wife and mother, dying with an aggressive form of breast cancer. While in Shady Valley (hospice center) she is receiving therapy to help make her life as comfortable as possible, and develops a close strong friendship with another patient, Ralph. I loved their relationship as so endearing-- as they face their illness with a strong bond with intense mixture of love, pain, hurt, sarcasm, and humor.

In The Mirror by Kaira Rouda was a beautiful book. This book made me laugh and cry. I loved Jennifer and Ralph's special relationship, they made each other laugh, pulled each other up when they felt down and gave each other strength to fight their cancer. I enjoyed the twist of the old ex Alex, and the awakening of her relationship with her husband Henry. I am hoping there will be a sequel to this !
I would recommend this book highly to anyone

Format: Paperback
In the Mirror by Kaira Rouda is a passionately stirring, emotional story of a young mother with an uncertain future as she is diagnosed with cancer. Jennifer Benson is not just a mother, she is also a wife, sister, daughter and dear friend to many. As she struggle through the pain of cancer and the dreadful prospect of dying an early death, she finds enough courage and purpose to cheer the people around her.

The sudden reappearance of her first love jolted her, but it becomes a springboard to love her husband as she never did before. Jennifer prioritizes her life with the more important things in life fully aware each and every step she takes could be her last. What is strikingly loveable about Jennifer is the zeal with which she touches those around her. Instead of being a burden to others, she infuses life and laughter into the lives of others.

In the Mirror by Kaira Rouda is a delightfully touching novel about love, family, and friends. It is a novel that shows how one can balance sadness with humor, sickness with laughter and death with life. It is a fascinating story, one that truly absorbs the reader. It is as uplifting as it is tragic. It is a story that everyone can relate to, and a novel that everyone must read as living today means facing death tomorrow.

Format: Kindle Edition
When a writer chooses to write about a heavy subject they have to do so beautifully, with honesty, knowledge and sincerity. Rouda was able to capture the characters struggle with the disease and all the horrors, questions. emotions and epiphanies that come with it. In the Mirror was an emotional read that will pull on heart strings. So much so that I had to set it a side a few times, which is sometimes good...when the writer can grab you like that...to make you really feel the character and their struggle. I am still a bit off balance from this read and am still living in the story. Great writing, by a fantastic author who really gets what it is to write a story worth reading! 4.5 stars

In The Mirror is full of emotion as a young wife and mother, Jennifer, struggles with cancer and her treatments. I was drawn into the story immediately. Jennifer's friendships are incredible as they support her through it all. I especially loved the friendship she made with Ralph, another patient. Her old boyfriend's reappearance brought up the thought of what would have happened if I had a second chance with an old love. We all have a past that we wonder about. But, would we ever be brave enough to take the chance to see how it could be if we had a second chance? When I was finished reading the book, I wanted more.

If you knew your days were limited, how would you spend them? Would you spend more time with family and friends? Go on the trip you always dreamed of? Do something crazy and unexpected like get your first tattoo? Or would you go about your life as usual?

Jennifer Benson has resigned to the fact that her cancer is going to prematurely end her life. At 34, the thought of people seeing her for the last time at her funeral isn’t the way she wants to be remembered; so she’s planning a party to celebrate her life. But when her ex-boyfriend, Alex, comes to town he makes it known that his feelings for Jennifer are still strong. With the disconnect she has been feeling with her husband and dealing with a terminal illness, the attention that Alex gives her is not only welcome, but something she starts to look forward to. But when Alex shows a different side of him, one that Jennifer has never seen, she realizes the mistake she made getting close to him again. She fears she may have gone too far and potentially jeopardized her marriage.

In The Mirror is a powerful book about life, love and forgiveness. The way the author addressed such sensitive topics as illness and infidelity was done in such a flawless way. This book will make you laugh, cry, and reevaluate what’s truly important in life. I absolutely recommend this book and am keeping my fingers crossed for a sequel!
