An accident took her husband's life, but has her decision to live in seclusion taken her mind?
Trying to escape the secret that was exposed when he died, the young author wants no entanglements with anyone who might intrude on her solitude. Maisy Hollis is convinced her sanity is slipping when she "meets" the handsome Wills Raines, a World War II hero whose reflection speaks with her through an antique mirror she brought home from an estate sale.
Especially when she finds herself falling in love with the dashing officer who was tragically betrayed so many decades ago.
Unfortunately, the charismatic Wills is trapped in a desolate limbo and needs the dynamic writer's help to release him from the purgatory in which he finds himself held captive.
These lost souls discover love and healing while isolated in intimate seclusion, but how will she find the courage to complete the task that will release him from his ethereal prison and from her life?
This contemporary romance is a tender and emotional journey of relationships and personal discovery, and should delight listeners who enjoy a romantic fantasy with a happily-ever-after.
If you could sum up Maisy's Mirror in three words, what would they be?
Dreamy, Different, Great
What was one of the most memorable moments of Maisy's Mirror?
When Wills won't leave Maisy alone and how their relationship develops even though he is a true 'ghost in the mirror'. It's so intriguing this dance between them, between Maisy and how you wonder along with her for a bit if she's going a bit mad.
Which scene was your favorite?
Well, I have too many that I love, but let's go with the ending, because I'm all about a satisfying ending and truly I wondered how in the heck could this ever turn out okay. This is a star-crossed lover couple after all. But...oh, yes. The ending. (I can't say a spoiler but heck y yes, I'm still smiling.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I touched on this above but there are so many poignant moments of this lonely woman Margaret who becomes Maisy because of the man in the mirror--a woman who's trying to heal and put her life together--and she is a true wounded character who's all but given up and gone far away from the world to hide, yet the world, Wills, won't let her. The friendship between her and Wils is so touching and sweet.
Any additional comments?
Yes. THIS NARRATOR is amazing. She kept it going fast, kept the voices so real and relevant and I know they're reading a story that someone wrote, but I was laughing out loud with delight at a couple of the voices and how she handled the situations and even accents! This is a complex, rich and deep story that spans time, and I'm just in awe the narrator could pull off the voices the flashbacks, the love scenes and, oh that ending. I will be searching out more books by Mimi Foster and books narrated by this narrator, Amy Martin. So great.
