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.Read more ›
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.
I would recommend this book highly to anyone
The characters of this story are wonderfully written. Jennifer is the main character and the story is told from her POV. I was amazed at the depth the author went into when describing everything that Jennifer goes through. She took us through the five stages of grief (denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance). And just like in real life, these stages don't necessarily come in order and the author showed that really well. Her husband Henry is just amazingly heartbreaking! At the beginning of the story we see a detached husband who is struggling to keep his family together and at the end he's back to being the husband Jennifer remembers who kisses her just because.
The plot of this story is really quite simple. It's a reflection of Jennifer's life and how she is coping with her diagnosis of death. She chooses to focus on her good memories instead of the bad ones when remembering her past which leads to a little trouble with her ex Alex (nothing she and Henry can't handle). There were a few moments were I couldn't help but chuckle (gallows humor and the beginning of each chapter started with a drug warning label) It's truly a heart-wrenching story as Jennifer asks the questions no one wants to ask.Read more ›
