    With startling insight, Danielle Steel explores women's choices: between home and adventure, between the love for family and the passion for a cause, between sacrifice and desire. But at the heart of Mirror Image is a fascinating, realistic portrait of identical twins, two vastly different sisters who lead their lives and follow their destinies against a vivid backdrop of a world at war.

    Story
    Where does Mirror Image rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book was so good,there were sad parts, funny parts, then you really got into the story when the twins decided to switch places and trick the husband. It took the son a year to figure out the real twin, but not the husband, even after having a set of twins with her. His wife left him not wanting to have sex, taking care of his son, or just being a wife. So her twin filled in great, but when she got hurt in Europe during the war and the head Nurse sent her Twin the telegram that she was serious ill, of course she took off to see about her and the husband complained, so he went along. So they had to tell him the truth of the switch
    which totally upset him. And then she had to tell her sister she also had a son too, that really put a lid on the jar. They had to get back to the states caring each other and an infant, what a trick with shooting all around and getting to a ship; but they made it home. Safe and sound back to NY with their twins and son & housekeeper waiting. This would make an interesting MOVIE!

    Written in a flowing narrative style, Kitty Genovese: A True Account of a Public Murder and its Private Consequences presents the story of the horrific and infamous murder of Kitty Genovese, a young woman stalked and stabbed on the street where she lived in Queens, New York in 1964. The case sparked national outrage when the New York Times revealed that dozens of witnesses had seen or heard the attacks on Kitty Genovese and her struggle to reach safety but had failed to come to her aid or even call police until after the killer had fled.

    Wanda says: "Wow, read this only if details does not annoy you."
    "Very Interesting & Intriquing"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Kitty Genovese the most enjoyable?

    I couldn't believe this story was going to be so good. The details were so interesting about the way the murder to place and Kitty's neighbors just listened and did nothing. The way they talked to the police was even worst. To believe people just watch & hear things going on and say "I don't want to get involved." I know when the New York Times wrote so much about the story, the neighbors were upset, but they should have done more. She may have still been alive. This book really makes you think about how people think today.


    What other book might you compare Kitty Genovese to and why?

    None


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    That the neighborhood & building she lived in only concern was not getting involved.


    Any additional comments?

    I truly recommend more people reading/listening to this book. It's a wake up call.
