Review: In the Mirror by Kaira Rouda


If you knew you may die soon, what choices would you make?

Jennifer Benson has it all: a successful career, a perfect husband, two kids and abundant friendships. The only problem is she may be dying. IN THE MIRROR is the realistic love story about a woman facing a deadly illness, and her loves past and present. It's a story that unfolds with a delightful blend of humor and poignancy, ringing true in the heart of anyone who has ignored a warning of her own.

  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
