When Juliette has a domestic servant beaten for pursuing a young man above her station, she finds herself cursed by a witch to live in a world behind her own mirror. She is unable to leave except on the first night of a full moon.
Juliette is forced to seek what food and shelter the new world provides with the help of a unicorn, a man who is half bear, and a centaur. Together they struggle to survive against lions, wolves, and the challenges of watching their friends live and die through the back of the mirror, as their own world moves on without them.
Reflections begins in Regency-era London, and ends in Clover Springs, California, an all but abandoned Gold Rush town.
Jena Baxter brings us a brand new fairy tale full of wondrous creatures and a lesson to be learned.
The mirror world created by Ms Baxter is mesmerizing. Her descriptions of different times and places in the real world are so well done that the listener/reader can actually visualize them.
Juliette started life off as a sweet girl with a best friend from a class far below hers. Sadly over the years and the influence of her parents and other friends she became self-centered and uncaring until the day she irritated the wrong witch.
After being whisked away to Mirror world, Juliette is totally lost without her servants until three unlikely companions take pity on her, unicorn Colovere, beran Tolor, and centaur Selene. They teach her how to work together and not only survive, but thrive.
Narrator Melissa Chatwood has the characters leaping off the pages with her wonderful use of voices and inflections. Thank you so much for singing the song in the book, your singing voice is angelic.
Is there any chance we can find a witch to send a few of the USA politicians to the mirror world?
